Description: Aaron Hill left the second game of Arizona's doubleheader on Sunday after fouling a ball off his left ankle and is questionable for Monday's game with San Diego.
Insight: Hill is batting .257 with 4 HR, 23 RBI and 16 runs scored. Cliff Pennington would probably get the playing time if Hill is sidelined, but Pennington's bat shouldn't excite fantasy owners.
