Wish it was Lutz getting promoted to AA instead of Hunt. LF seems to be open there. (LaMarre in CF, Fellhauer in RF)

In an interesting turn of events, the Reds have traded catcher Koyie Hill to the Chicago Cubs.
Cubs Acquire Koyie Hill From Reds
By Zach Links [May 19 at 1:37pm CST]
The Cubs have brought back catcher Koyie Hill after acquiring him from the Reds in exchange for cash considerations, tweets Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. Hill will be with the club for tonight's game against the White Sox.
Hill, 33, was hitting just .195/.250/.341 for the Reds' Double-A affiliate so far this year. The veteran spent the previous five years with the Cubs and hit .208/.270/.295 in 252 big league games.
The Reds signed Hill to a minor league deal in late April after he was let go by the Cardinals.
Brian Peacock was demoted from AAA to AA to take Hill's place. No corresponding move announced for bats - I'm guessing a free agent/indy league filler guy.
this thread needed some clutter
I've counted multiple times and I still get 24 on the Bats' roster. Am I crazy?
