Cubs Designate Koyie Hill For Assignment

The Cubs designated catcher Koyie Hill for assignment, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports (on Twitter). The Cubs activated Welington Castillo from the disabled list in a related move.

Hill appeared in 11 games for the Cubs this year, collecting six singles and a double in 39 plate appearances. The 33-year-old has experience in nine MLB seasons, but most of his professional career has been spent at the minor league level, where he has a .278 /.344/.410 batting line.

    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.
