Reds' Billy Hamilton: Unlikely to play Thursday

Hamilton will likely get Thursday off after getting spiked during Wednesday's loss, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.

Hamilton got spiked during a play at the plate in the eighth inning, which helps explain why he was replaced prior to the top of the ninth despite having gone 4-for-5 with a solo homer and two additional runs scored to that point. He said it felt like a nerve was hit, though he added that he still wants to play in Thursday's series finale. That said, it sounds like the Reds will play it safe and give the center fielder the day off anyway.
