Aaron Hill back with a flourish

It must have seemed like an eternity for Aaron Hill. After colliding with teammate David Eckstein his 2008 campaign abruptly came to an end in early May. Originally believed to be a mild concussion that would keep him out of the lineup for a few days turned into a week, then a month, and eventually the team shut him down for the remainder of the season..

Hill is healthy again and has returned to the Jays lineup. Down 3-1 in the 8th inning to the Tigers, he sent a Brandon Lyon offering over an outstretched Carlos Guillen for a pivotal 3 run home run erasing the deficit and giving the Jays a 4-3 lead. One can only imagine just how sweet it was for Hill to lift his team up when they were on the brink of defeat. Hill is showing no ill effects of his concussion, and if early indications are true, Hill is back in a big way. He didn't just return to the team and blend in, he came back with a flourish...
