Cubs sign Hill to Triple-A

The Chicago Cubs have signed catcher Koyie Hill to Triple-A Iowa

after designating him for assignment earlier in the week.

The team announced the move before Saturday’s game against the

Boston Red Sox. He cleared waivers after being designated on

Thursday.

The Cubs had reacquired the 33-year-old Hill in a trade with

Cincinnati in May. He also spent all or part of the past five

seasons in the organization.
