Reds | Billy Hamilton batting ninth

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:34:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is batting ninth in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been struggling at the plate this season and is entering the game with a .211 batting average. He also has only four stolen bases this month. Owners on FantasyScore could still consider using Hamilton because of his stolen base potential, but he may not help much in the other categories.

Reds | Billy Hamilton on the bench

Sun, 24 May 2015 07:54:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Brennan Boesch will be the starting center fielder for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has struggled in some games recently, so he is receiving a day off. Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .121 this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton dropped to ninth

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:36:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton has been dropped to ninth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) really isn't doing anything for FantasyScore users aside from stealing bases, which he has 17 of in 19 tries. A move to the bottom of the order permanently will make him very unattractive for his price unless he starts getting on base more often.

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:53:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton was dropped to eighth in the order Sunday, May 17, against the San Francisco Giants. C Brayan Pena will hit out of the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) will have his potential greatly reduced while hitting so low in the batting order. Hamilton can still be a threat on the bases, but his ability to score runs will be greatly reduced.

Reds | Billy Hamilton streaking

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 21:47:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three stolen bases in a 7-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs Friday, April 24, and he has hit safely in six straight games.

Fantasy Tip: During the streak, Hamilton ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has scored six runs and stolen three bases, and he currently ranks second in the NL in runs and first in steals. He offers a ton of upside because of his speed, and when he is actually reaching base with regularity like he is now, he is a great mid-range option at FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton returns to lineup

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 12:20:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (groin) is batting leadoff and playing center field against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, April 20. Hamilton did not play Sunday, April 19, because of a sore right groin.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been a terror on the base paths, and each stolen base is worth 2.0 FantasyScore points. Despite his struggles at the plate (8-for-41, .267 OBP), he still has a league-leading eight stolen bases this season. Consider Hamilton a risk/reward play in daily contests Monday.

Reds | Billy Hamilton day-to-day

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 18:46:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (groin) is day-to-day with a sore right groin, and his availability for the game against the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, April 19, is in doubt.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) derives a lot of his fantasy value from his speed, and a groin injury could limit his base-stealing ability. We suggest waiting until he proves he is 100% before using him at FantasyScore going forward.

Reds | Billy Hamilton injured

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 13:16:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (groin) left the game Saturday, April 18, with an apparent right groin injury while running to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Skip Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) would fill in if Hamilton misses time. Schumaker doesn't have a lot of luster on FantasyScore.
