The Chicago Cubs have activated Welington Castillo from the disabled list, according to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. In a corresponding roster move, the Cubs designated catcher Koyie Hill for assignment.

Castillo hit the Cubs 15-day disabled list in late May due to a sprained MCL in his right knee. After resting his knee for a few weeks, Castillo began an injury rehab assignment last weekend.

Prior to sustaining his injury, Castillo has appeared in seven games for the Cubs. Over his 27 at-bats, the 25-year-old hit at a clip of .185/.241/370 with a home run, two doubles and four RBIs.

Castillo has spent most of the 2012 season in Chicago’s farm system. Over his 61 at-bats with the Cubs Double- and Triple-A affiliates, Castillo has posted a line of .328/.468/.590 with four home runs, four doubles and 14 RBIs.

Hill has appeared in 11 games for the Cubs this season, posting an OPS of .385 over his 39 at-bats.
