Hill rests for second straight day


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The D-backs gave second baseman Aaron Hill another day off on Sunday after the club scratched him from the lineup on Saturday with left quad tightness.

"There is some discoloration there," manager Kirk Gibson said. "I talked to [managing general partner] Ken [Kendrick], and at this point in the spring, we just decided to not have him play."

Hill, who signed a 3-year, $35 million deal in the offseason, is 4-for-13 so far this spring with three doubles.

"If it was in the season, he'd be playing," said Gibson. "That's how serious it is."
