Hill out of lineup but injury does not appear serious

PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Hill was out of the lineup Sunday after being hit in the right hand by a Justin De Fratus pitch in the sixth inning Saturday night.

Hill received treatment on the hand Sunday morning and said that it felt “good.”

Throwing was not a problem for him, but Saturday night he was unable to grip a bat. Sunday morning he was headed to the batting cage to try and take a few swings.

X-rays taken Saturday did not show a break, but that can be deceiving. Last year when he was hit by a pitch in April, X-rays were negative, but an MRI later showed a non-displaced fracture and he missed more than .

“Nah, I’ll be alright,” Hill said when asked if he was concerned about a repeat of last year. “Nothing you can do if it is, but I’ll be fine. It got me a little more square last year.”
