Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is working on his bunt skills in order to get on base more. Hamilton worked along with Delino DeShields, a former major leaguer and current manager at Triple-A Louisville.
Fantasy Tip: DeShields was a base stealer in his days with the Montreal Expos, and Hamilton would do well to learn from the likes of him. If he could get on base more Hamilton is capable of 80-100 stolen bases a season, but he's only worth a middle or late-round selection because of his struggles at the plate.

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (shoulder) has been cleared to take batting practice.
Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is dealing with a sore right shoulder that's not believed to be serious. Fantasy owners can breathe a little easier now that he's cleared to swing. Hamilton will be an expensive stolen-base asset in 2015 fantasy baseball drafts, but it could pay off in what should be a much more productive lineup in Cincy.
