The Toronto Blue Jays have placed second baseman Aaron Hill on the 15-day disabled list (DL), per Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star.
The move is retroactive to April 8th, which means Hill will be eligible to return on April 23rd.
“It’s not the way I wanted to start off,’’ Hill said. “Like I told them, ‘I know in the back of my mind you guys are making the right decision’ – even though I fought ’em on it. Obviously, I want to be out there.’’
While Hill is out, John McDonald and Mike McCoy are splitting the second baseman duties.
In eight at bats this season, Hill has only one hit.
