  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Heads to bench Monday

    Hilliard is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Hilliard will take a seat after he went 3-for-16 with a pair of home runs, a stolen base and seven RBI while starting each of the last five games. Despite those solid counting stats, Hilliard is still hitting .169 on the season and looks more likely than the hot-hitting Yonathan Daza to move into a reserve role once Kris Bryant (back) is ready to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Goes deep again Saturday

    Hilliard went 1-for-2 with a home run, a walk, two total runs and four total RBI in a 10-4 victory versus the Royals on Saturday.

    Hilliard capped a big third inning for the Rockies with his three-run shot to right field. The long ball was the second in as many days for Hilliard after he failed to go deep in his first 55 at-bats of the season. Prior to Friday, he was mired in a massive slump during which he went 3-for-40 with 14 strikeouts over 14 games.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Smacks first homer

    Hilliard went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk, a stolen base and two RBI against Kansas City on Friday.

    Hilliard drove in his first run of the game on a single in the second inning, and he proceeded to immediately steal his second base of the campaign. He followed that up by recording his first home run of the season in the eighth frame. So long as Kris Bryant (back) is sidelined, Hilliard should get regular at-bats against right-handed pitching. However, his production hasn't been noteworthy, as he's managed just a .169/.286/.288 line with six RBI and five runs scored across 70 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Sits against southpaw

    Hilliard isn't starting Monday against the Giants, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Hilliard started in the last four games and went 0-for-11 with a run, a stolen base, two walks and four strikeouts. He'll get a breather with left-hander Carlos Rodon starting for the Giants while Yonathan Daza, Garrett Hampson and Randal Grichuk start in the outfield from left to right.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Records stolen base

    Hilliard went 0-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Hilliard continues to start regularly against right-handed pitching in the absence of Kris Bryant (back). He reached base with a two-out walk in the second inning and stole second base for his first swipe of the season. Otherwise, Hilliard hasn't taken advantage of his uptick in playing time, as he's reached base only 11 times across 37 plate appearances while tallying one RBI and one run scored.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Not in lineup against southpaw

    Hilliard isn't starting Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Hilliard went 1-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's series opener against Washington, but he'll head to the bench with left-hander Patrick Corbin on the mound Wednesday. Connor Joe will start in left field while Yonathan Daza enters the lineup in center.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Sits Sunday

    Hilliard is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    Yonathan Daza will get a look in center field while Hilliard sits out after he started in each of the past three games while going 1-for-8 with a triple, four walks and an RBI during that stretch. While Kris Bryant (back) is stuck on the injured list, Hilliard looks like he'll see steady reps in the outfield alongside Charlie Blackmon and Randal Grichuk.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Reaches base three times

    Hilliard went 1-for-2 with two walks, a triple and an RBI on Thursday against the Phillies.

    Hilliard led off the third inning with a triple but was ultimately stranded there. However, he still had a productive day after grounding into a fielder's choice in the seventh frame to deliver the team's only run of the contest. He's stuck in a fourth outfielder role, though he has drawn seven starts in the last 14 games -- in part due to injuries to Garrett Hampson (hand) and more recently Kris Bryant (back). Hilliard hasn't taken advantage of that opportunity, as he has only six hits across 23 at-bats with three RBI and three runs scored.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Back in bench role

    Hilliard is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies.

    Hilliard picked up three starts in the Rockies' last four games, but two of those came while Randal Grichuk was tending to a sore back. Grichuk has returned to the lineup for the past two contests and hasn't experienced any setbacks, so Hilliard looks like he'll be relegated to fourth-outfielder duties for the foreseeable future.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Takes advantage of chance to start

    Hilliard went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and one run scored Friday against the Cubs.

    Hilliard drew only his second start of the season, replacing Randal Grichuk in center field. He came to the plate with two runners in scoring position in the fourth inning and delivered a two-RBI double. Without an injury ahead of him, Hilliard appears in line for a bench role this season, as he has seen just nine plate appearances across Colorado's first seven games.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Not starting Opening Day

    Hilliard is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Hilliard was the presumed primary starter in center field to open the season for the Rockies, but he'll instead begin the campaign on the bench. Randal Grichuk, who was recently acquired from Toronto, will start in center and figures to cut into Hilliard's playing time. Kris Bryant and Charlie Blackmon will start in left and right field, respectively, while Connor Joe serves as the designated hitter.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Spring struggles continue

    Hilliard went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Wednesday's Cactus League loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Hilliard appeared in 82 games for Colorado last year, but he hasn't been helping his case for playing time this spring. Across nine Cactus League appearances, he's hit just .190 with a homer, four runs, three RBI, three stolen bases and 10 strikeouts. If Hilliard's struggles carry over into the regular season, Garrett Hampson and Yonathan Daza will likely wind up seeing increased playing time in center field.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers again Saturday

    Hilliard went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 11-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Hilliard hit a solo shot off Zac Gallen in the third inning to put the Rockies on the board. However, he struck out in his other three plate appearances. He has three long balls and 10 RBI in his last 12 games but carries a 38.3 K%. The 27-year-old is slashing .213/.291/.464 with 14 homers, 34 RBI and 31 runs scored in 234 plate appearances this season.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Provides big homer in comeback win

    HIlliard went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk Friday in a 9-7 victory versus Arizona.

    The outfielder struck out twice in three at-bats, but he made up for the whiffs with a three-run sixth-inning blast that brought Colorado within a run in a game during which they once trailed by seven. Hilliard is still batting only .213 on the campaign, but he has been better in recent weeks, slashing .296/.377/.574 with four homers, 13 RBI and two stolen bases in 17 games since Sept. 9.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Swipes bag Wednesday

    Hilliard went 1-for-5 with a pair of RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 10-5 win over Washington.

    The outfielder has hit safely in his last two games after going on an 0-for-11 skid in the three contests before that. Hilliard hasn't had a great year with the bat, slashing .211/.288/.441 across 226 plate appearances. He's added 12 home runs, 30 RBI, 29 runs scored and four steals in 78 games. He's received regular playing time across the outfield in September despite the poor batting numbers.
