Koyie Hill Acquired for No Reason

Carlos Ruiz- starting catcher.  Wil Nieves- MLB backup.  Cameron Rupp- waiting in Triple A.  Lou Marson- released.  Naturally, acquire a 35 year old catcher that can't hit, at all. Ruben Amaro, the mad genius that he is, got Koyie Hill from the Nationals for a player to be named later or cash considerations (basically, not too damn much).  Over 10 MLB seasons with the Cubs...

Lou Marson Among Non-Tendered Players Could Give Phillies Catching Depth

The Phillies are pretty short on catching depth. Yes, the team re-signed catcher Carlos Ruiz to a three-year deal, but the other options are pretty light. Erik Kratz hit a few home runs, but barely kept to the Mendoza line in 2013. Cameron Rupp was rushed to the big leagues...
