Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Scores winning run in 13th inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-5 with a walk, a run and two steals in Sunday's season finale against the Brewers.

The game was ultimately a meaningless one for the Rockies, who finished at 71-91, but Hilliard will still enjoy his run, which came on a 13th-inning wild pitch to give his team the win. The 25-year-old made a strong impression in his 27-game debut this season, hitting .273/.356/.649 with seven homers.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Smacks game-tying homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Brewers.

Down to their last out, Hilliard was called on to pinch hit for catcher Tony Wolters. Hilliard delivered a solo shot to left off Brewers closer Josh Hader, tying the game, which set the stage for Trevor Story's walkoff an inning later. Hilliard is up to seven homers and 13 RBI in 72 at-bats this season.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Plates three runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hilliard launched a two-run homer in the seventh inning and drove home the Rockies' final run with a double in the ninth. The 25-year-old has been on a tear at the plate over his last five games, going 9-for-15 with four long balls and six RBI. He hit 35 home runs in Triple-A Albuquerque this season and has continued flashing his power since being called up to the majors in late August, slugging six round trippers in his first 54 at-bats.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard hit a solo home run in his only at-bat during Friday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hilliard launched a 406-foot homer pinch hitting in the eighth inning, but unfortunately that would be the final run scored for the Rockies in a 12-5 rout by the Dodgers. It was his fifth long ball of the season and his third over the last two games. Hilliard is hitting .239/.327/.630 across 46 at-bats.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Posts two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in a 7-4 victory against the Mets on Wednesday.

The sample size is still small, but Hilliard definitely has some pop. Six of his 10 hits in the big leagues this year have gone for extra bases, including four home runs. That's why his slugging percentage sits at .556 despite a .222 average. Hilliard also has seven RBI and six runs in 45 at-bats this season.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Continues to sit vs. LHP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

With another lefty due up for San Diego (Eric Lauer), Hilliard will remain on the bench in favor of Garrett Hampson in center field. The Rockies line up to face three left-handed starters next week.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Benched vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

Hilliard is headed for the bench with a left-hander slated to toe the rubber for the opposition. Garrett Hampson is starting in center field and will bat second.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Idle against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

The lefty-hitting Hilliard will take a seat with the Padres bringing southpaw Eric Lauer to the hill. Hilliard looked to have captured a near-everyday role in the Colorado outfield in late August, but he'll be on the bench for the fourth time in five contests Sunday. The rookie's opportunities could be limited moving forward following the recent return of outfielder Raimel Tapia from the injured list.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

The lefty-hitting outfielder will head to the bench for the first time in the series with a lefty (Steven Brault) on the hill for the Pirates. Hilliard has gotten off to a 5-for-16 start to his big-league career, homering twice and driving in five in five games.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Rockies' 11-8 loss to the Pirates on Thursday.

The recently promoted rookie has now left the yard in each of his first two big-league starts, mashing a two-run shot in this contest off Michael Feliz in the eighth inning. His prodigious power at Triple-A Albuquerque was what led to his call-up, and so far Hilliard is off to a good start as he tries to show he can translate it to the big club. He only has eight at-bats, though, so he'll need to keep it up over a larger sample size before too much should be read into it.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Out vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

After going 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in his big-league debut Tuesday, Hilliard will give way to Yonathan Daza in center field Wednesday with left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez starting for the opposition.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Hilliard was called up to the big leagues earlier in the day and wasted no time displaying his power at the plate, crushing a 455-foot shot to right center field in the eighth inning. The 25-year-old has an intriguing mix of power and speed, racking up 35 long balls and 22 steals in 126 games with Triple-A Albuquerque this season.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Surfaces in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

Hilliard will immediately receive a shot to see big-league action, as he's starting in center field and batting seventh Tuesday against the Red Sox. He spent 126 games at Triple-A this season, slashing .262/.335/.558 with 35 home runs, 101 RBI and 22 stolen bases.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Posts four-homer week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard slashed .333/.357/.815 with four home runs, five runs scored, eight RBI, a double and a stolen base for Triple-A Albuquerque last week.

Already in the midst of an impressive power-hitting campaign for the Isotopes, Hilliard ripped off this torrid seven-game stretch that saw him crank four more long balls. He now has 24 homers on the season through 373 plate appearances, putting him at fourth in the Pacific Coast League. The 25-year-old is mostly known for his pop, but he's also consistently demonstrated impressive skills on the base paths during his professional career, as he's swiped 16 bags this season, giving him 118 steals across 527 minor-league games.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Mashes 20th homer in Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, three runs scored and a walk for Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

It was Hilliard's 20th long ball in 278 at-bats for the Isotopes, as he continues to showcase impressive power in the Pacific Coast League. He still needs to improve his plate discipline, as his 28:94 BB:K has contributed to an unspectacular .330 on-base percentage. Still, it's been an encouraging campaign for the 25-year-old, as he slugged just .389 for Double-A Hartford last season -- a number he's managed to boost up to .568 during his first season in Triple-A.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Flashing impressive power
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and a run scored for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

Hilliard has been piling up the long balls for the Isotopes of late, as this was his third homer in the last week to bring his team-leading total up to 12 on the season over 154 at-bats. That has him tied for fourth in the PCL, and he's also leading Albuquerque in RBI with 34 to go along with seven stolen bases. As has been the case throughout his minor-league career, the knock on Hilliard is he racks up a ton of strikeouts; he's fanned a team-high 55 times this season, which has contributed to his pedestrian .247 batting average. Still, he's at least shown improvement from his season at Double-A Hartford last year that saw him slash .262/.327/.389 over 435 at-bats.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

Hilliard spent the start of camp on the major-league side but wasn't in serious consideration for a roster spot. He earns a promotion after hitting a mediocre .262/.327/.389 for Double-A Hartford last season.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

HIlliard was added to the 40-man roster by Colorado on Tuesday.

Hilliard took the field for Double-A Hartford last year, and the Rockies have decided to protect him from the Rule 5 draft after he posted a .262/.327/.389 slash line with nine homers and 40 RBI over 121 games. Ryan Castellani, Justin Lawrence and Josh Fuentes were also added to the 40-man roster.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Fast start in hitter-friendly California League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard, 23, is slashing .337/.412/.506 with two home runs, 16 RBI and eight steals through 25 games for High-A Lancaster.

Hilliard has gotten off to a scorching start overall, though strikeouts remain a concern. The southpaw has fanned 12 times over his last 10 contests. Still, he registered 17 home runs and 30 steals in 2016, and the toolsy outfielder would really vault up the prospect ranks if he can prove that he can hit for average. Like all Lancaster hitters, his numbers should be discounted somewhat this season, given the extremely advantageous home ballpark.
