Reds | Billy Hamilton has three hits

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:02:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton had three hits Saturday, April 30, in a 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. He also scored the team's only run on a double by SS Zack Cozart.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton's average improved to .218, which illustrates his biggest problem. Hamilton is strong when on the basepaths, but getting him on base is the big issue. If Hamilton ever figures it out all the way, he could be a very dangerous player.

Reds | Billy Hamilton returns vs. Mets

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:55:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (thumb) is starting in center field and batting ninth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Since entering the league, Syndergaard has limited opposing hitters to a .222/.265/.366 slash line, and he has been better to start 2016. Hamilton hasn't started since Wednesday, April 20, so it's likely best to wait for a better matchup to return him to your starting lineups in all fantasy formats. Hamilton is 6-for-38 to start the season, after all.

Reds | Billy Hamilton pinch hits

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 23:15:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (thumb) appeared as a pinch-hitter Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: It was his first at-bat in four days, which is a sign his thumb is on the mend. He's only hitting .158 and doesn't offer much outside of steals. It's hard to start him right now, but he could be worth an OF5 spot because he can swipe bags in bunches.

Reds | Billy Hamilton remains sidelined

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 10:13:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (thumb) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Tyler Holt is starting in center field and is hitting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: Holt has a total of 24 hits in 111 major league at-bats over three years. He's not the kind of player you want in your daily lineup against Lester and the Cubs.

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 15:08:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (thumb) has a soft cast on his injured left thumb.

Reds | Billy Hamilton will miss a few days

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 13:19:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (thumb) injured his left thumb when he hit it against the outfield wall catching a would-be home run during a game against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 15. He will not play for a few days and is currently waiting to have his thumb examined by a doctor.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton has played four games since sustaining the injury, but clearly he'll need some time off to heal. Expect Tyler Holt to see time in center field with Hamilton out, but Holt's not a fantasy option at this point. Stay tuned for updates, and if Hamilton ends up missing a longer period of time, Jesse Winkler could find his way to the majors, and Winker would be worth an add in deep mixed leagues.

Reds | Billy Hamilton takes a seat

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:27:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Scott Schebler is starting in center field and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Schebler has only six hits in 33 at-bats this year, and he should be avoided against last year's NL Cy Young winner.

Reds | Zack Cozart has day off

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 07:51:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 20, with OF Billy Hamilton leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton has struggled to get on base, and he only has two steals because of it. Today might be a day to give him a DFS start against Chad Bettis.

Reds | Billy Hamilton out Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:01:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton remains out of the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, April 17. OF Scott Schebler will play center field and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is on the bench for the second consecutive game due to lack of performance rather than an injury. He is batting just .185 through his first 32 plate appearances this season. Schebler is nothing more than an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy contests.

Reds | Billy Hamilton out of the lineup

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 09:31:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Saturday, April 16. OF Scott Schebler will start in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Schebler has only two hits in his last six games but is still hitting .250 with three RBI. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider using Schebler but probably will be able to find better candidates.
