CHICAGO – Veteran catcher Koyie Hill, who was designated for assignment on Thursday, has cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa.

Hill still has a short window of time to decide if he will accept the outright or become a free agent.

He was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds on May 19 for cash considerations after Welington Castillo and Geovany Soto went down with injuries. Hill was designated when Castillo returned from the disabled list.

At the time he was acquired, Hill was playing at Double-A in the Reds’ system.
