Reds test out Billy Hamilton at seventh in batting order Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5:22 pm ET) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton typically hits lead off in the batting order during the regular season. However, Monday, manager Bryan Price tried to change things up and moved Hamilton to seventh in the order, reports MLB.com.
"Well, I've moved everyone else this spring. ... I've had guys all over the board," Price said. "Having Billy hit further down in the lineup is just another option for us to see where we're best suited. It's not a shot at Billy. It's a shot at trying to see if we have a way of being more productive offensively."
Hamilton is hitting .179 in 39 spring training plate appearances with four RBI and six stolen bases.
"There definitely could be changes -- left-handed or right-handed starter," Price said. "I think what we hope to have is very similar personnel in our lineup on a daily basis, which we weren't able to have last year. That would bode well, and our bench players would know their roles, and I'd try to get them at-bats with periodic starts. For the most part, we have a fairly set regular lineup."
Reds' Devin Mesoraco, Billy Hamilton back in lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/15/15) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco (concussion) and center fielder Billy Hamilton (shoulder) are back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Mesoraco suffered his concussion last weekend after getting hit in the mask by a foul ball but was able to progress through the week.
"To be honest, I don't think I need a lot of at-bats," said Mesoraco. "My swing is good, and I feel like my swing is pretty close to where it should be. I don't think I need any extra, but I'm more than happy to go out there and play as much as Bryan wants me in there."
Hamilton injured his shoulder nine days ago while running into an outfield wall.
Reds CF Billy Hamilton (shoulder) still day-to-day
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/12/15) Reds manager Bryan Price said center fielder Billy Hamilton remains day-to-day with his sore right shoulder, according to MLB.com. Hamilton injured his shoulder last Friday against the Cubs after colliding into the wall.
"We just want to make sure the shoulder is pain-free, that he has full range of motion," Price said. "They do all the exercises with him and … want to make sure all of that inflammation and soreness is out of there before we cut him loose. I don't think it will be much longer for Billy."
Hamilton was able to take part in batting practice on Wednesday and showed no adverse effects following it.
Reds' Billy Hamilton (shoulder) ready to resume hitting
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton (shoulder) has received clearance from the medical staff to resume hitting, MLB.com reports.
"Just a little bit, but I won't be doing full stuff until [Thursday]," Hamilton said. "It feels good. I don't know about when I'll play a game -- hopefully soon."
Hamilton hasn't played since colliding with a wall Friday.
Reds OF Billy Hamilton (shoulder) waiting for clearance to hit
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton said Wednesday his sore right shoulder is feeling better, per MLB.com. He is waiting to meet with the doctor in order to get cleared to hit.
|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.
