12/12 Hill now free agent

The Cubs have non-tendered catcher Koyie Hill but did tender contracts to the other arbitration eligible players, Jeff Baker, Blake DeWitt, Matt Garza, Geovany Soto, Ian Stewart, and Randy Wells. The deadline for tendering contracts to any arbitration eligible players was 11 p.m. CT Monday. Because Hill was non-tendered, he is now a free agent. The 32-year-old catcher batted .194 in 46 games, including 38 starts. The Cubs were 22-16 in games in which he started. The team could look internally for a backup with both Welington Castillo and up and coming Steve Clevenger as options.

22-16 + worthless offense = see ya! I wouldn’t be surprised if Soto is moved to make room bor BOTH Castillo and Clevinger.

Well that’s the first worthless pile of crap the Cubs got rid of… now if we can just keep Pena out of the lineup for next year (yes I know hes a FA but some want him to come back……DUMB IDEA)
