Koyie Hill declines Cubs offer, moves on

By Doug Padilla

CHICAGO -- Catcher Koyie Hill did not accept his outright to Triple-A Iowa and has become a free agent.

Hill was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds on May 19 for cash considerations after Steve Clevenger, Welington Castillo and Geovany Soto all were injured. He played in 11 games batting .179 (11-for-39) with an RBI and three runs scored.

Hill was playing at Double-A Pensacola in the Reds system before he was acquired.
