Hall was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 7th round of the 1998 Major League Baseball Draft. His best minor league season was in 2001 with the Single-A Dayton Dragons. He went 11-5 with a 2.66 ERA and 122 strikeouts. He made his major league debut against the San Francisco Giants on August 2, 2003, as a spot starter going 5 innings, giving up 2 earned runs, and getting a no-decision. Hall missed the entire 2004 season due to an injury and began 2005 back in the minors. First at High-A Sarasota, he was then promoted to Double-A Chattanooga where he had a 3.53 ERA. He played mostly with Chattanooga again in 2006, but also some with Triple-A Louisville.
Hall became a free agent after the 2006 season and signed with the Washington Nationals on November 6, 2006. In 2007, Hall was mostly a relief pitcher for Double-A Harrisburg, but in 2008, again with Harrisburg, he was a starter. After 7 games, he was released by the Nationals and signed a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies. With Colorado, he split the rest of the season with Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Colorado Springs. He became a free agent at the end of the season and re-signed with the Rockies in January 2009. Hall was released by the Colorado Rockies at the end of Spring Training. On May 11, 2009 Hall agreed to a minor league deal with the Mariners. He declared free agency in November of that year.
