Reds' Billy Hamilton: Trade still possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trade talks between the Reds and Giants regarding Hamilton are dormant, though the Giants' acquisition of Andrew McCutchen doesn't preclude them from also adding Hamilton, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

One might not think that a trade away from Great American Ballpark would hurt Hamilton that much, but over the last three years he's been a significantly better hitter at home than on the road, averaging well over .100 OPS points higher at home.

Reds' Billy Hamilton: Comes to terms with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton agreed to a one-year, $4.6 million deal with the Reds on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanRagSports.com reports.

He receives a healthy raise over the $2.625 million he made last season in his first year of arbitration. Hamilton is one of the game's best defenders, but continues to be a real-life liability at the plate. However, his 243 steals in 537 MLB games make him a valuable commodity in fantasy. It's possible that Hamilton will be traded before Opening Day.

Reds' Billy Hamilton: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton is not in the lineup against Chicago on Friday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Hamilton will occupy a spot on the bench for Friday's series opener after going 1-for-4 with a walk and one stolen base during Thursday's loss to Milwaukee. In his place, Phillip Ervin is set to patrol center field, while batting in the leadoff position.

Reds' Billy Hamilton: Held out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

Hamilton played Friday for the first time since Sept. 6, so manager Bryan Price decided to hold him out Saturday so he would not have to play nine innings back-to-back days immediately. Phillip Ervin will get the start in center field in Hamilton's place.

Reds' Billy Hamilton: Hitting leadoff in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton will patrol center field and bat leadoff during Friday's game against the Cardinals, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

This marks the first time that Hamilton will be back in action since fracturing his thumb Sept. 6. Although it seemed like Hamilton would miss the rest of the season, or at least be eased back into the swing of things as a pinch runner/hitter, the 27-year-old is set to complete a full-fledged comeback for Friday's series opener. Dating back to the All-Star break, he's slashed .258/.304/.354 with 14 RBI, 28 runs and 20 stolen bases in 51 games. It remains to be seen whether Hamilton will be able to join the lineup in an everyday capacity for the rest of the season, and his status should be closely monitored following Friday's affair.
