Reds speedster Hamilton caught Thursday for first time in 2015
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Reds speedster Billy Hamilton had been successful on all nine of his stolen bases this season until Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado threw him out in the sixth inning Thursday.
It marked the first time all year that a Cincinnati steal attempt was thwarted. The team was 17-for-17 before Hamilton was nailed.
Reds' Billy Hamilton back in lineup, Devin Mesoraco still out
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, while catcher Devin Mesoraco remains sidelined.
Hamilton wasn't in the lineup Sunday after suffering a groin strain the previous day, but he's ready to return to action in the team's series opener against the Brewers.
Mesoraco hasn't played since April 12 due to a left hip impingement. Manager Bryan Price said that he had to go home due to a family issue, but he's expected to be back with the team Tuesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Second baseman Brandon Phillips is also getting a day off from starting, with the team slotting Kris Negron into the eighth spot.
The Reds are underdogs (+104) Monday against the Brewers.
Reds' Billy Hamilton feeling better day after suffering groin strain
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton was able to test out his injured groin Sunday, but was still not able to take the field against the Cardinals. Hamilton felt better just a day after suffering a groin strain, reports MLB.com.
"I'm better today. I can move around a little bit better today, so that's a good thing," Hamilton said. "My legs are my gift."
Hamilton is optimistic he will return to the lineup Monday.
"That was somewhat of a surprise that he's recovered so well. He's definitely a usable piece at this point," Price said. "I don't think there's really a concern of re-injury."
Reds' Billy Hamilton, Devin Mesoraco out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton (groin) and Devin Mesoraco (hip) are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Hamilton came out of Saturday's game with a groin strain. With the speedster out of the lineup, Skip Schumaker will lead off for the Reds Sunday night. Mesoraco hasn't played since last Sunday due to a hip injury, though he was expected to be available at some point this weekend. Tucker Barnhart will draw the start at catcher Sunday.
The Reds are heavy underdogs (+165) against the Cardinals in St. Louis Sunday.
Billy Hamilton leaves Reds game with apparent injury
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton beat out an infield single in the eighth inning of Saturday's game, ending an 0-for-14 slump.
Hamilton then left the game with an injury. Afterward, manager Bryan Price said Hamilton was day-to-day with a right groin injury, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.
|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.
