Red Sox's David Hamilton: Erupts in opener
Hamilton went 4-for-5 with two home runs and seven RBI for Double-A Portland on Friday.
Hamilton, who came to the Red Sox from Milwaukee in the Hunter Renfroe trade, was a double short of the cycle in the first game with his new organization. The 24-year-old speedster batted leadoff and also stole a base for the Sea Dogs. He stole 52 bags in two minor-league stops in 2021, a sign that he's regained speed after sustaining an Achilles injury while in college.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's David Hamilton: Receives invite to big-league camp
Hamilton was invited to Boston's major-league spring training Saturday.
Hamilton was traded from the Brewers to the Red Sox in early December as part of the deal involving Jackie Bradley and Hunter Renfroe, and the 24-year-old will have a chance to develop with the major-league coaching staff in his new organization. He was promoted to Double-A Biloxi during the 2021 campaign and hit .242 with three homers, 16 runs, 12 RBI and 11 stolen bases across 33 games. Although the shortstop showcased his speed by stealing 52 bases between the High-A and Double-A levels last year, he'll likely begin the 2022 season at Double-A Portland and seems unlikely to make his major-league debut this year....

Red Sox's David Hamilton: Traded to Red Sox
Hamilton, Jackie Bradley and Alex Binelas were traded from the Brewers to the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for Hunter Renfroe.
Hamilton was an eighth-round pick during the 2019 draft and had his first taste of professional baseball last season. He had a .773 OPS in 68 games at High-A before being promoted to Double-A, where he posted a .727 OPS in 33 contests. The 24-year-old was listed among Milwaukee's top prospects and is unlikely to make his way to the majors in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' David Hamilton: Promoted to Double-A
Hamilton was promoted from High-A Wisconsin to Double-A Biloxi on Tuesday.
One of the fastest players in the minors, Hamilton hit .264/.352/.424 with five home runs and 41 steals on 47 tries in 67 games at High-A. His 18.5 percent strikeout rate and 11.4 percent walk rate were also impressive, but Hamilton turns 24 in September, so he was pretty old for a legitimate prospect at that level. Double-A will be a much more telling test for the lefty-hitting speedster.... See More ... See Less
