Cubs sign Hill to Triple-A
The team announced the move before Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox. He cleared waivers after being designated on Thursday.
The Cubs had reacquired the 33-year-old Hill in a trade with Cincinnati in May. He also spent all or part of the past five seasons in the organization.
