Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill has agreed to a three-year, $35 million contract extension with his club, according to a report from Buster Olney at ESPN.com.

Hill already had a contract that kept him in Arizona next year, but the new deal pays him just over $2 million more annually after a season when he captured his second Silver Slugger award. Hill owned a .302 batting average in 2012, to go with 26 home runs and 85 RBIs. He signed with Arizona in 2011 after seven years in Toronto, where he was named to his only All-Star game in 2009.
