Reds' Hamilton works on improving contact to help cut down on Ks
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton said he has spent the offseason in Atlanta working with Triple-A Louisville manager Delino DeShields, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.
"We're working a lot on bunting and making contact," Hamilton said Thursday. "I struck out way too much."
Hamilton did not play in winter ball for the first time as a pro. He said the focus this offseason has been on strength and conditioning.
Hamilton hit .250 as a rookie in 2014, but he hit .285 before the All-Star break and .200 after it.
"All we can do is speculate that his second half of the season was just getting used to playing in the bigs for the full season," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "I certainly think strength certainly February through October is important. Getting stronger, getting re-acquainted with acumen for bunting, getting more balls hit on the ground, more hard line drives, instead of balls in the air."

Billy Hamilton a no-go Thursday with concussion
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) A concussion that knocked Reds speedster Billy Hamilton from the Wednesday game has him missing from the Thursday lineup against Milwaukee.

2015 Draft Prep: Busts 1.0
Should the buyer beware when it comes to selecting George Springer this season? Our Scott White includes him on his list of busts to remember for Draft Day.
|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.
