Reds' Billy Hamilton steals 41st base of year
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/5/15) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton didn't start, but that didn't keep him off the basepaths.
Hamilton pinch hit in the sixth inning of Sunday's loss to Milwaukee. He walked and promptly stole his MLB leading 41st base of the year.
Reds CF Billy Hamilton could play way into leadoff spot
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is back in the leadoff spot Tuesday against the Twins after a standout performance batting leadoff Monday. He went 2 for 4 with three runs, two walks and four stolen bases.
While Hamilton is currently batting leadoff as Brandon Phillips is sidelined due to injury, manager Bryan Price said Hamilton could stay in that spot if he continues to perform well.
“If he can do what he did yesterday on a regular basis, that would be great,” Price said, per MLB.com. “You guys know, the great importance of that role is you know that guy is going to get the most at-bats on your ballclub, and he needs to be on base.”
Price added Hamilton is still finding his way from the left side of the plate as a switch-hitter. Although, he is improving on bunt hits. After starting 0 for 6 on bunt-hit attempts, he is now 6 for 17 (.353).
“The more balls he gets on the ground, the more chances he has of getting on base,” Price said. “I still believe that’s the role he will fill for this team. It just has to come on a more consistent basis before he returns full-time to the leadoff spot.”
Reds CF Billy Hamilton gets rare leadoff nod Monday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Reds speedster Billy Hamilton has returned to the leadoff spot Monday against Minnesota - at least for one game. He has been elevated in the lineup due to the absence of Brandon Phillips.
Hamilton continues to struggle. He is 4-for-22 over his last six starts with four hitless efforts.
Reds CF Billy Hamilton has first SBs since swiping five bases
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton totaled two singles, one RBI, one run, one strikeout and two stolen bases during a 7-6 loss Tuesday at Pittsburgh. He had his first steals since totaling five stolen bases June 14 against the Cubs.
Hamilton has 12 of his 33 steals in June. He is batting .237 with one double, five RBI, six runs, four walks and 12 strikeouts in 17 June games.
Reds CF Billy Hamilton swipes five bases in loss to Cubs
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/15/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton was a complete menace on the bases during his team's 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday.
Hamilton went 2 for 3 with a walk and a double, but what was impressive was the fact that once he got on base he could not be stopped. He stole five bases, which hasn't been done since 2013, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
"I am certain he's going to do that again," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said of Hamilton's quintet, per MLB.com. "He's an extremely unique talent when it comes to speed. He should play in the NFL in the offseason."
Hamilton is hitting .224 with three home runs and 17 RBI in 210 at-bats this season.
|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.
