D-backs second baseman Aaron Hill was removed from Friday night's 10-0 win over the Padres after two innings with right hamstring tightness. Hill felt the hamstring stiffen up while scoring from second base in the first inning after he had doubled home a run. He notified the coaching staff but remained in the game. An inning later, Hill hit his second RBI double of the night to make the score 4-0, and D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said he saw the veteran "dragging his leg a little bit." Once the Padres retired the side, Gibson told Hill he was coming out. Eric Chavez came off the bench to man third base, while Martin Prado shifted from third base to second. "I could've finished the game, but I just took it easy," Hill said. "Not worth it today." Although neither Hill nor Gibson seemed concerned about the injury, the skipper said after the game that the 31-year-old would be out of the lineup Saturday, which did indeed happen. "That's debatable," Hill originally said of being out Saturday, "I haven't got to argue my case yet." But obviously the coaches' word prevailed. Gibson said he will most likely put him back in the lineup Sunday before the team has an off-day on Monday however. Aaron Hill likely out until tomorrow with tight hamstring: http://t.co/roOVeINW6p #Dbacks (via @TylerEmerick) — Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) July 27, 2013 Hill has been riddled with injuries terribly all season long. After participating in 156 games in 2012, he's been in a measly 37 thus far in 2013. He's hitting a respectible .280 but only a mind-blowing 5 homers after hitting 26 bombs last season. He also has only 19 RBI's compared to 85 a year prior. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
