Spate of Reds benched for battle at Wrigley Field


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The Reds have issued a lineup for Wednesday against the host Cubs that one might have expected had they just clinched a playoff spot. Among those set to sit are third baseman Todd Frazier, second baseman Brandon Phillips, shortstop Zack Cozart, center fielder Billy Hamilton, right fielder Jay Bruce and catcher Devin Mesoraco.

None are listed as injured.


Reds bench Billy Hamilton for Wednesday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Reds speedster Billy Hamilton is not in the lineup for the Wednesday night game against St. Louis. Chris Heisey is playing center and leading off instead.

Hamilton has been slumping to the tune of just two hits in his last 24 at-bats. He has just three runs scored and no RBI since Aug. 29 as his stat line has been weakened to .260/.298./369.


Billy Hamilton reaches four times in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Reds leadoff hitter Billy Hamilton practically spent all day Thursday against the Cubs on base, in a 7-2 win.

Hamilton reached base in all four of his trips to the plate, going 2 for 2 with his first two-walk game of the season. He scored twice and drove in two runs, while adding a stolen base, his 51st of the season.

The only hole in Hamilton's game as a rookie has been his on-base percentage, which he just pushed back over .300 with Thursday's effort. He is hitting .267/.302/.385, while ranking second in the majors in steals.


Billy Hamilton homers in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Reds infielder Billy Hamilton flashed some rare power Monday, albeit in a 5-2 loss to the Brewers.

Hamilton got the Reds on the scoreboard for the first time in the sixth inning, with a solo home run. He finished the game 2 for 4 overall with one run scored and one driven in.

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


Billy Hamilton delivering steals but leading MLB in times caught


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) 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.


Billy Hamilton batting .323 since May 31


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) 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
(7/11/2014) 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.

(7/10/2014) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton was able to pinch-hit Thursday against the Cubs.

Hamilton did not start due to a hamstring injury, but it doesn't appear to be serious. Hamilton came on in the bottom of the 10th and worked a four-pitch at-bat against Hector Rondon. He flew out to right to end the inning. Hamilton was then replaced by a pitcher, and did not play the field.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) The Reds will be without a pair of starters for Thursday's game against the Cubs, after both suffered injuries Wednesday.

Billy Hamilton expects to be fine in a few days


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Billy Hamilton exits game Wednesday with tight hamstring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton was removed from Wednesday's game with hamstring tightness, the team announced.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Billy Hamilton sitting vs. knuckleballer 'makes sense'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price said part of the reason he chose to keep outfielder Billy Hamilton out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays was he wanted to have more experienced hitters in the lineup against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

"It’s not so much [a day off], more so the fact that I think [Ryan] Ludwick has [11] at-bats against Dickey and he’s [3-for-11]. And Schu [Skip Schumaker] is 3 for 8, and having some experience with a knuckleballer, I think there’s an advantage to that," Price said, per MLB.com.

"And a day off for Billy isn’t the worst thing. My concern isn’t that he can’t do it, it’s just that we knew that when we went into the season there’s going to be a lot of wear and tear. A young center fielder who plays with that type of energy, who steals bases, who covers a lot of ground in center field, who’s 160 pounds, and he’s going to be playing into the late months that he hasn’t done as a regular player before -- playing into September and maybe into October -- so it just makes sense."


Billy Hamilton gets a rest Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton was not in the team's starting lineup Sunday.

Hamilton will be replaced by Skip Schumaker in center field. Hamilton will receive a normal day of rest, and should return to action in a day or two. He's hitting. 273/.309/.396 over 245 at-bats.


Billy Hamilton swipes three bases Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton went 3 for 4 with a walk, two runs and three stolen bases in his team's 6-5 win over the Pirates Tuesday.

Hamilton has been doing damage at the plate recently, going 8 for 13 with two walks, two doubles, two home runs, three RBI and six runs, but Tuesday gave him an opportunity to run wild on the basepaths and post his first three-steal game of the season. Hamilton has hit .272/.311/.393 with four home runs, 18 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 224 at-bats.


Billy Hamilton continues power surge Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton continued his power surge Sunday at Milwaukee, homering for the second straight game and third time in eight games. Hamilton connected for his fourth home run when he led off the game with a solo home run off Marco Estrada.

Hamilton finished 3 for 6 with two runs, two RBI and three strikeouts. He's now batting .306 (15 for 49) with two doubles, three home runs, eight RBI, nine runs and five stolen bases in 13 June games.

Billy Hamilton gets day of rest against Dodgers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) An effort to keep Reds speedster and leadoff hitter Billy Hamilton strong throughout the season has motivated Bryan Price to sit him for the series finale Thursday against the Dodgers.

"He didn't play every day when he was up in September," Price explained to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "He did go to Puerto Rico. That kind of wore him down, I think. But he does play center field. He's 160 pounds. He plays hard. He runs hard. He does everything at 100 percent, which is great. But I want to make sure he's still strong and healthy going into the later months of the season."

Hamilton has been slumping lately to the tune of four hits in his last 26 at-bats, though he has awakened recently. He boasts a stat line of .252/.290/.345 with 24 stolen bases in 31 attempts.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
