After 84 games, the Red Sox have finally begun making moves, and acquired infielder Aaron Hill from the Milwaukee Brewers. Hill cost the Red Sox two prospects and pitcher Aaron Wilkerson and infielder Wendell Rijo.
Hill is making $12 million this season but the Diamondbacks are paying the Red Sox $6.5 million, so Hill will not cost the Red Sox much in the cash category.
Hill is currently hitting .283 on the year and is expected to be a right handed compliment to Travis Shaw who has been less than stellar against lefties this season.
