PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks and second baseman Aaron Hill have agreed to a three-year, $35 million contract.

The deal puts the 30-year-old infielder under contract through the 2016 season. He had signed a two-year, $11 million deal with Arizona following the 2011 season and is set to make $5.5 million this year.

Hill hit .302 with 26 home runs and 85 RBIs last season. He came to Arizona as part of a trade with Toronto in August 2011 and was a big part of the team's stretch run that won the NL West title that year.

The deal follows an agreement last week between Arizona and newly acquired third baseman Martin Prado on a four-year, $40 million contract.
