Hamilton (oblique) has not yet begun baseball activities, but he and the Reds are still aiming to get him back on the field again this season.

However, it's not a given that he'll return. If Billy is inactive from baseball activity for two weeks or 10 days or whatever, then we need to decide what he needs to get back ready to go," manager Bryan Price said. "I think for a hitter, it might be a little easier, because he could still help as a defender and baserunner, even if he can't swing the bat -- if we're not risking re-injury by him doing the other things.
