2010 BCB Community Projections: Koyie Hill

Koyie Hill did a fine job last year while Geovany Soto was out and Lou didn't trust Jake Fox behind the plate. At one point he started 26 consecutive games, unheard-of for a catcher in this era. 53 MLB catchers caught at least 50 games last year. Hill's OPS of .636 ranked 42nd -- not great, but his solid defense makes up for that. He caught 40% of runners trying to steal off him, an excellent percentage.

He's not a great hitter, but as a backup, if he doesn't have to start more than about 30 games, the Cubs are in fine shape. For the record, Hill started 69 games in 2009.
