Hampson isn't starting Saturday against San Diego, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Hampson will be on the bench for the second time in the last three games after he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Friday. Sam Hilliard will start in center field and bat eighth.
Hampson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres. Hampson had started each of the last two games, and he went 0-for-6 with two runs, a stolen base, a walk and two strikeouts. Sam Hilliard will take his place in center field and bat sixth.
Hampson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers. Hampson has been the primary replacement in center field since Yonathan Daza was placed on the COVID-19 injured list, but the 26-year-old filled in for an injured Brendan Rodgers (calf) at second base in his most recent start Saturday. Rodgers is back from a two-game absence in the series finale, while Sam Hilliard will cover center field in Hampson's stead.
Hampson isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners. Hampson had filled in for Yonathan Daza (undisclosed) across the last four games, and he went 4-for-18 with a double, three runs, a walk and four strikeouts during that time. Sam Hilliard will start in center field and bat seventh.
Hampson will start in center field and bat leadoff Sunday against the Dodgers. Hampson looks to be the main beneficiary of Yonathan Daza's placement on the COVID-19-related injured list Friday. He'll pick up his third straight start in center field in place of Daza on Sunday after going 1-for-8 with a walk and a run scored in the first two games of the series.
