  • Rangers' Derek Hill: Gets NRI from Texas

    Hill signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training.

    Hill draws positive reviews for his defense in center field but has slashed just .229/.279/.314 over 304 plate appearances at the major-league level. He'll turn 28 later this week and is a good bet to begin the 2024 campaign at Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Derek Hill: Elects to leave Nats organization

    Hill elected to become a free agent Monday.

    Hill played in only 13 major-league games with the Nationals this season and heads to the open market with a weak .229/.279/.314 career big-league batting line in 304 plate appearances. The 27-year-old outfielder will likely have to settle for a minor-league contract this winter.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Remains in organization

    Hill accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Hill was designated for assignment on Wednesday and went unclaimed off waivers. He had the option to become a free agent but will remain in the Nationals' organization to await his next opportunity. The 27-year-old has hit .229/.279/.314 in 108 career games, so he's unlikely to fill a significant role if he returns to the big club.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Scrubbed from 40-man roster

    The Nationals designated Hill for assignment Wednesday.

    Washington will pull the plug on Hill as its everyday center fielder after a roughly two-week stint atop the depth chart following Victor Robles' (back) move to the 10-day injured list. Though he's regarded as a strong defender in center, Hill mustered a lowly .170/.220/.191 slash line across 50 plate appearances with the Nationals following his promotion from Triple-A Rochester. The Nationals recalled Alex Call from Triple-A in a corresponding move, and he'll presumably take on a regular role in center sans Hill and Robles.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Serving as primary center fielder

    Hill will start in center field and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Since being called up from Triple-A Rochester on June 21, Hill has started in each of the Nationals' subsequent 10 games, but he's slashed a woeful .132/.175/.158 over 40 plate appearances. Despite Hill's ongoing struggles at the dish, the elite defense he brings in center field looks as though it'll be enough for him to stick in Washington's everyday lineup while Victor Robles (back) is on the injured list.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Brought up from Triple-A

    Washington selected Hill's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. He'll start in center field and bat eighth in his team debut Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Hill has played well for Rochester in 2023 with a .320 average, eight home runs, 11 stolen bases and a .903 OPS over his 194 at-bats. The 27-year-old replaces Victor Robles on the 26-man active roster after Robles was placed on the 10-day injured list with back spasms in his lumbar spine.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Reinstated from injured list

    Hill (hamstring) was reinstated from the minor-league injured list Tuesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    After suffering a hamstring strain early in spring training, Hill will return to Triple-A Rochester's lineup. The 27-year-old outfielder went 3-for-12 during his rehab assignment in High-A, and he slashed .229/.296/.401 across 255 plate appearances in Triple-A last season.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Sent out of MLB camp

    The Nationals reassigned Hill (hamstring) on Tuesday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

    Hill's departure from big-league camp comes as little surprise after he strained his hamstring last week and would have been challenged to make a full recovery in time for Opening Day. Once healthy, Hill is expected to report to Triple-A Rochester, though he could explore his options in another organization if he doesn't envision a clear path to a big-league call-up in 2023.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Nursing hamstring strain

    Hill (hamstring) has a Grade 1-2 strain in his right hamstring, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Manager Davey Martinez gave no timetable for Hill's return, but it's safe to assume the outfielder will miss at least a few weeks. Hill might have been a long shot to make the roster anyway, considering his .229/.270/.289 slash line in 92 plate appearances for Detroit last season, and this injury significantly hurts his chances.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Exits with apparent injury

    Hill left Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees with an apparent injury to his right leg, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Hill picked up an infield single, but while running through the bag, the outfielder appeared to injure his leg and slowly departed the contest. The speedy 27-year-old is battling for a roster spot with the Nationals after signing with the club in November. There should be an update on Hill's status before Thursday.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Sent for MRI on hamstring

    Hill will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Hill pulled up in pain after legging out an infield single in Wednesday afternoon's Grapefruit League loss to the Yankees. A strain of any kind would obviously severely damage his chances of making the Nationals' Opening Day roster. The 27-year-old outfielder inked a minor-league contract with Washington back in November.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Leaves with hamstring injury

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez clarified that Hill exited Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees with a right hamstring injury, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Hill injured his hamstring while running through the bag on a base hit in the third inning. The outfielder was replaced by James Wood after exiting the contest with a trainer. Hill will likely need to undergo testing, and his status going forward should be updated by Thursday.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Leaves with hamstring injury

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez clarified that Hill exited Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees with a right hamstring injury, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Hill tweaked the hamstring while running out a grounder in the third inning. He'll likely undergo an MRI, at which point an update on the severity of his injury should be provided. Hill is attending camp as a non-roster invitee.

  • Nationals' Derek Hill: Gets NRI deal

    Hill signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Tuesday that includes an invite to big-league spring training, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    A superb defensive center fielder who has been unable to hit big-league pitching, Hill could get reps in Washington in 2023, given how barren the depth chart is. The 26-year-old has a career .240/.291/.339 slash line with four home runs and nine steals in 254 MLB plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Derek Hill: Clears waivers

    Hill cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

    After being designated for assignment by the Mariners on Wednesday, Hill will now have an extra hurdle to clear in order to make it back to the majors. He slashed .229/.296/.401 over 255 plate appearances this season at Triple-A split between the Detroit and Seattle organizations, but ended the year on a high note with a .828 OPS in September.

  • Mariners' Derek Hill: Loses spot on 40-man roster

    Hill was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Hill was claimed by Seattle in early August after being designated for assignment by the Tigers, and he slashed .236/.320/.462 with five homers, 19 runs, 19 RBI and six steals over 34 games at Triple-A Tacoma. He'll likely become a free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

  • Mariners' Derek Hill: Claimed by Seattle

    Hill was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Friday.

    The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by Detroit earlier this week and will now join a new organization. Hill was at the Triple-A level with the Tigers, so he'll likely report to the Mariners' affiliate in Tacoma. The outfielder has played in 31 big-league games this season and has a .229/.270/.289 slash line and 30.4 percent strikeout rate in 92 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Derek Hill: Designated for assignment

    Hill was designated for assignment Monday.

    The Tigers needed to open up a spot on their 40-man roster, and Hill was the player who wound up being removed from the list. He has played with Triple-A Toledo since the middle of June, and it remains to be seen if he will continue doing so or join another organization.

  • Tigers' Derek Hill: Sent to minors

    Hill was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Monday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Hill went just 1-for-12 at the plate through six games in June and will now head to the minors, where he'll likely see more playing time. Jacob Barnes was designated for assignment, while Drew Hutchison's contract was selected and Tyler Alexander (elbow) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list in corresponding moves.

  • Tigers' Derek Hill: Ready to go Friday

    Hill is starting in center field and batting ninth in Friday's contest versus the Blue Jays, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    After missing two straight games with a sinus illness, Hill will return to the lineup Friday. With Daz Cameron (undisclosed) on the COVID-19 injured list, Hill may pick up some extra run in the outfield.
