The Winnipeg Goldeyes have had the contract of outfielder Tyler Hill purchased by the Kansas City Royals.
Since joining the Fish in late June, Hill has appeared in 40 games, batting .375 with 32 runs, 14 doubles, four home runs, 28 RBI, and 16 stolen bases.
The 23-year-old rattled off an 18-game hitting streak from June 30 through July 18. Hill had 23 multi-hit games, and set a career-high with five RBI on Tuesday night in the Goldeyes’ 15-10 win over the Lincoln Saltdogs.
Hill is expected to report to the High-A Carolina League’s Wilmington Blue Rocks in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes open a four-game series against the Milwaukee Milkmen on Friday, beginning with a double header at Routine Field.
