Koyie Hill C WAS Aug 14 '12
Rangers signed C Koyie Hill to a minor league contract.
Hill was given his release by the Nationals earlier this month after hitting just .163 with two homers and a .457 OPS in 33 games with Triple-A Syracuse. The 33-year-old is a .210/.271/.294 hitter over over parts of nine seasons in the majors and will presumably serve as catching depth at the Triple-A level.

Nationals signed C Koyie Hill to a minor league contract.
Hill must be approaching some sort of record. Washington will be the fourth National League club that has employed him this season. The 33-year-old spent spring training with the Cardinals, signed a minor league deal with the Reds in April and was dealt to the Cubs three weeks later. Chicago DFA's Hill last week, he passed through waivers and refused an assignment to Triple-A. That story is far more interesting than the player who hit just .179 with a .385 OPS in 39 plate appearances with the Cubs. Regardless of whether or not he works his way back to the majors this year, he has zero fantasy value.

Cubs sent C Koyie Hill outright to Triple-A Iowa.
Hill had to pass through waivers after being designated for assignment on Thursday. He was ineffective in his stay with the Cubs, hitting just .179 with a .385 OPS in 39 plate appearances. He'll continue to act as organizational depth at Triple-A.
