On To The Next One: Aaron Hill

Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill has left Beverly Hills Sports Council and signed with Brian Peters and Greg Genske of Legacy Sports Group.  Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal tweeted the change of representation just yesterday.

Hill was traded by the Toronto Blue Jays to the Arizona Diamondbacks only a couple of months ago.  The Blue Jays received second baseman Kelly Johnson in return for Hill and utility infielder John McDonald.

While Hill had a very impressive season in 2009 (.286 batting average, 36 home runs, 108 RBI), he has dropped off quite a bit ever since.  In 2010, he batted only .205 and prior to being traded to Arizona in 2011, he was batting a mere .225.  However, Hill picked up his performance after he was traded to Arizona.  In 33 games with the Diamondbacks in 2011, Hill batted .315 and hit 12 doubles.
