Aaron Hill posted on 09/30/2014

Born March 21, 1982, Aaron Hill plays MLB for Arizona Diamondbacks as second baseman. Hill belongs to the elite group of four players who have hit the cycle twice in a single season. He started playing college baseball in 2000, when he played for Louisiana State University's Tigers team, and posted a career of 150 RBIs, 23 home runs, and batting average of .335.

In 2003, Hill was the first pick in the draft for Toronto Blue Jays. In 2005, he made his MLB debut, when he was called from the minor league, to replace Corey Koskie, who was injured. Even though he was a shortstop, Hill became second baseman and the designated hitter during the season. He finished the season with .348 OBP, and batting average of .274. In 2006, he was the second baseman, and went on to win the Fielding Bible Award at that position for his excellence in fielding in 2007. In May 2008, Hill suffered a concussion and could not play for the rest of the season. In 2009, he was selected for the All-Star game, and he finished the season with 36 home runs, and a .286 batting average.

Diamondbacks fans, fantasy players and MLB spread betting experts are quietly wondering whether there is a sleeper fill-in waiting in the wings.

Juan Miranda, a 27-year-old Cuban emigre, might finally be getting the opportunity he was hoping for.

Miranda signed with the New York Yankees in 2006 but never got a shot for steady at-bats with Mark Teixeira occupying the full-time duties. The Diamondbacks acquired Miranda from the Yankees for minor-league prospect Scott Allen. While he hasn’t had much time in the Majors, Miranda has shown plenty of promise while playing in AAA with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

In the three previous years in AAA, Miranda hit .287 with 67 doubles and 46 home runs. In the Majors, Miranda has three home runs, two doubles and a triple in 64 at-bats.
