Reds' Billy Hamilton back in lineup Monday vs. Rockies
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is back in the starting lineup and batting ninth in Monday's matchup with the Rockies.
Hamilton suffered shoulder and wrist injuries on a slide on Saturday and was held out of Sunday's game, but it appears the issue was minor. He has hit .211/.256/.322 with three home runs, nine RBI and a league-high 17 stolen bases in 152 at-bats.
It's the first time this season manager Bryan Price has batted the pitcher eighth. The Reds are favorites (-140) on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.

Reds stick with Zack Cozart leading off, Billy Hamilton eighth Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Giants but not leading off for the first time this season.
Hamilton, who was not in the lineup Saturday, has started 33 of the team's 37 games and led off in every one, but he'll bat ahead of the pitcher Sunday. He's hit .212/.264/.336 with three home runs, six RBI, 22 runs scored and 17 stolen bases in 137 at-bats.
Shortstop Zack Cozart drew his first start in the leadoff role Saturday after three games as the No. 2 hitter, and though he went 0 for 3, he did draw two walks in his team's loss to the Giants. He has hit .310/.364/.543 with six home runs, 17 RBI, 19 runs scored and three stolen bases in 116 at-bats.
The Reds are favorites (-112) against the Giants at home Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.
Billy Hamilton struggling against RHP and sidelined Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Reds center fielder and leadoff hitter Billy Hamilton, who has struggled batting from the left side all year, is set to sit Saturday against Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong.
Hamilton is just 17-for-93 against righties and is batting .212 overall.
After scoring 18 runs though May 5, he has just four in his last 10 games. His on-base percentage of .264 is weak for a leadoff hitter.
|2014 summary: Up until the All-Star Game, Billy Hamilton looked as if he would be even better than advertised. The speedy rookie not only had stolen 38 bases but also was batting .285 with five home runs. Hamilton was slowed down significantly in the second half, and his September was downright miserable. In the season's final month, Hamilton struck out 19 times in 65 at-bats and batted .123 with two stolen bases.|
Playing time status: Hamilton logged 611 plate appearances in 2014, but his ability to equal that number will depend on whether he will lead off regularly again. His .292 on-base percentage might have Reds manager Bryan Price re-thinking his batting order. Hamilton also missed the final four games of the regular season due to a concussion, though there has no been no indication that his offseason preparations will be affected.
2015 outlook: As many would have expected, Hamilton was much more valuable in Rotisserie leagues than in points leagues. Owners can expect a similar split again this season, with Hamilton being a potential top 20 Roto outfielder, but a top 30 outfielder in points leagues.
