The Diamondbacks secured another of their infielders long-term on Friday, signing second baseman Aaron Hill to a three-year, $35 million extension, according to major-league sources.

Hill, who earned $5.5 million last season, was eligible for free agency at the end of the season. The Diamondbacks recently signed another of their potential free-agent infielders, third baseman Martin Prado, to a four-year, $40 million contract.

Hill, who turns 31 on March 21, batted .302 last season with 26 homers, 85 RBIs and a career-high .882 OPS.
