The Brewers announced on Thursday evening that the club sent 3B/2B Aaron Hill to the Red Sox in exchange for minor league pitcher Aaron Wilkerson and second baseman Wendell Rijo.

Hill, 34, is having a quality season after two subpar years in 2014 and ’15. He’s batting .283/.359/.421 with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 292 plate appearances, getting a majority of his playing time against left-handed pitching.

Wilkerson, 27, has split the year between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket, compiling an aggregate 2.14 ERA with a 102/25 K/BB ratio in 92 1/3 innings spanning 16 starts and one relief appearance.

Rijo, 20, has spent most of the year with Portland, batting a paltry .186/.245/.266 in 194 plate appearances.
