With the 2012 season just about 2 1/2 months from kicking off with pitchers and catchers, it is time to take a look at how the Arizona Diamondbacks stack up by position. Next up, a look at second base, which was still up for grabs up until a couple of weeks ago.
Starter: Aaron Hill
Backup: Ryan Roberts
It looked like for the better part of a month, we weren’t sure if Aaron Hill would be a member of this team in 2012 or not. The team wasn’t sure they wanted to bring back Hill because of the terms he was looking for. At first they had reservations about giving him a multi-year deal just based on six weeks of positive performance. In the end though, he was the guy with the multi-year deal. He will be the starter.
