Koyie Hill was arbitration eligible for the second time after earning $700,000 last season, but he’s avoided the process by agreeing to a one-year, $850,000 deal with the Cubs.
Hill has spent the past four seasons with the Cubs after previously being let go by the Dodgers, Diamondbacks, and Yankees, but has hit just .211 with a .271 on-base percentage and .299 slugging percentage in Chicago.
He’ll serve as Geovany Soto‘s backup again this season after totaling 231 plate appearances and 60 starts last year.
