Update 9:29 PM ET: Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports the two sides have come to terms on a two-year deal worth a little north of $10 million. Now with Aaron Hill re-signed, the D'Backs are set in their positional depth chart. The club will now turn their attention to acquiring starting pitching.

According to ESPN's Jim Bowden, the Arizona Diamondbacks and free-agent second baseman Aaron Hill should have a deal done in the next 72 hours.

We heard a couple of days ago from FOX Sports Arizona's Jack Magruder, that the club offered Hill a multi-year contract valued between $4 million-$5 million per year, which has been out to Hill since shortly after the conclusion of the World Series.

"The Diamondbacks have a multiyear contract offer on the table to second baseman Aaron Hill, and they would like to have an answer before the general managers' meetings begin in Milwaukee on Tuesday."
