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.

Reds | Billy Hamilton dropped to eighth

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.

Fantasy Tip: Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end flyer without a lot of luster on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton not in lineup

Sun, 03 May 2015 09:04:14 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) likely is just receiving a day off. Brennan Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be the starting center fielder but should not be an option for owners on FantasyScore.

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.

Reds | Billy Hamilton back in Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:07:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (finger) is back in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Tuesday, April 14. Hamilton is starting in center field and hitting leadoff, as usual.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was rested due to finger soreness Monday night, but he should be alright. He should be a daily consideration for FantasyScore lineups because of his ability to steal multiple bases each and every game.

Reds | Billy Hamilton available

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:32:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (finger) said he will be available to play Monday, April 13, if needed. Hamilton is dealing with a sore finger he suffered in the game Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) could be used as a pinch runner during the game and help owners with his stolen base potential. Since Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Monday, he would be a risky option for owners on FantasyScore.
