|Billy Hamilton homers in loss |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/22/14) Reds infielder Billy Hamilton flashed some rare power Monday, albeit in a 5-2 loss to the Brewers.

Hamilton has six home runs in 94 games, and is hitting .281/.314/.424 in 349 at-bats.

(7/16/14) While Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton has stolen 38 bases at the All-Star break, his 15 times caught stealing put him well atop the league in the negative category.
Hamilton was billed as an elite stolen-base threat after swiping 103 bases in 2011 and a massive 155 bags in 2012, but he was also caught 57 times during those two seasons. The inefficiency has carried over into his major-league career, as Hamilton has been caught six more times than the second-most nabbed runner. For comparison, steals leader Dee Gordon has been successful in 43 of his 52 attempts, while AL stalwart Jose Altuve has been caught just three times in his 44 attempts.

(7/15/14) Despite missing a little bit of time due to a hamstring injury, Reds rookie outfielder Billy Hamilton has still been very productive in July. He is batting .308 with a .538 slugging percentage, .896 OPS, one home run, three triples, three doubles, seven runs, 10 RBI and four stolen bases in 13 July games.
Though, Hamilton's hot streak has extended several weeks. Since May 31, he's batting .323 with a .509 slugging percentage, .861 OPS, three triples, four home runs, 13 doubles, 27 runs, 28 RBI and 19 stolen bases. His batting average has increased from .247 to .285 over his last 41 games.
|Billy Hamilton reaches three times in return |

(7/11/14) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton reached three times in his first game back from a hamstring injury.
Hamilton could not be stopped early on. He singled in his first three at-bats. While he made an out his fourth time up, Hamilton did notch an RBI on the groundout. He finished 3 for 5, with one run scored and one RBI.
|Billy Hamilton returns from hamstring injury. |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates, after missing one game with a hamstring injury.
Hamilton was able to pinch-hit Thursday, so his return to the lineup does not come as much of a surprise.
|Prospect hounds would tell you Billy Hamilton lost some of his luster in 2013. One year after setting a minor-league record with 155 stolen bases, he finished second to the White Sox's Micah Johnson with "only" 75. Worse yet, he went all Willy Taveras at the plate with a .256 batting average and .651 OPS. But if you were paying attention in September, you got a glimpse of just what kind of impact he can make in Fantasy. He swiped four bases in the first game he ever started and one in each of the six he entered as a pinch-runner. No one can say for sure whether his struggles at Triple-A Louisville were the result of him being promoted too fast, struggling to pick up switch-hitting or getting bored waiting around for a promotion, but he reached base at a .406 clip in nearly half a season at Double-A Pensacola in 2012, hitting .311 between two stops that year. With the kind of speed that has made him a candidate to advance on infield flies and score from second base on ground outs -- both feats he has accomplished already -- Hamilton is going to be a big deal in Fantasy whether he hits .250 or .290. Leading off for the Reds, he's worth a middle-round pick in both Rotisserie and Head-to-Head formats.
