Cubs Designate Koyie Hill For Assignment

I designate this assignment for everyone:  try to find me another player who has gotten as many MLB at-bats with less talent than Koyie Hill.  Hey, I didn’t say it would be an easy assignment… ;).

Soto has been terrible, but lets be realistic…
Come the deadline, someone would hand over a fringe prospect with upside for a catcher with pop in his bat.

Castillo/Clevenger will do fine.
