In what appears to be the final move in a series of roster changes predicated by this weekend’s doubleheader, the Phillies traded recently designated for assignment Ronny Cedeno for minor league catcher Raywilly Gomez. Gomez, 24, is a career .286/.369/.367 hitter across seven minor league seasons and has been assigned to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Gomez could factor into...

The road to contention just got even trickier.
2008 first-round pick Zach Collier was designated for assignment today to make room on the 40-man roster for catcher Koyie Hill. The 23-year old outfielder has struggled in the minors, posting a .240/.312/.349 over his minor league career while Collier has hit just .228/.307/.316 with just one homer in his second stint with Reading....

The Texas Rangers added some catching insurance by signing veteran Koyie Hill to a minor-league contract.
Hill was assigned to Round Rock and will handle the duties that Luis Martinez had. Martinez was called up by the Rangers to take the roster spot of the injured Mike Napoli. Napoli is on the disabled list with a strained quad.
Hill has played in 313 games in the majors, most...
The Cubs have made a few transactions and one of them might spell the end to his career. Koyie Hill was let go by the Cubs this past offseason and after about a dozen catchers were injured on the team they were forced to bring him back. Now he's gone and he's probably not good enough to continue playing at the MLB level. We should take a minute to remember his career.
The Chicago Cubs have reacquired catcher Koyie Hill in a deal with the Cincinnati Reds for cash considerations.
The 33-year-old Hill returns to the Cubs after spending all or part of the past five years in the organization from 2007-11. He batted .208 with seven home runs and 63 RBI in 252 games with the Cubs during his first stint.
Hill was batting .195 this season with a homer...

The St. Louis Cardinals have added catching depth behind three-time All-Star Yadier Molina, agreeing to a minor-league contract with longtime Chicago Cubs backup Koyie Hill, a source told FOXSports.com.
The Cubs non-tendered Hill, 32, after he batted .194 in 46 games last year. Hill's contract with St. Louis calls for a $750,000 base salary if he makes the big-league club.
