Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Called up and starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was recalled by the Rockies and is starting Monday against the Giants.

Hilliard was sent to the Rockies' alternate training site Thursday, but he'll return to the major-league club with just under a week remaining in the regular season. It's unclear how much playing time he'll see over the final several games of the year. The 26-year-old slashed .238/.304/.488 with six home runs and 10 RBI over 29 games earlier in the season.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was optioned to the Rockies' alternate training site Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Hilliard wasn't in the starting lineup over the past seven games, and he'll now head to the alternate training site where he should see more consistent work. It's unclear whether Hilliard will rejoin the major-league club during the 2020 campaign.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Not seeing work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

He'll be on the bench for the seventh straight game, as trade-deadline pickup Kevin Pillar has essentially bumped Hilliard out of the Rockies' regular lineup versus right-handed pitching. The 22-25 Rockies are beginning to fade in the National League playoff picture, but until the team is officially eliminated, finding regular at-bats for the 26-year-old probably won't be a priority.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Losing work to Hampson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is not starting Saturday against Seattle, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Hilliard sits for the third straight game as the Rockies face a third straight lefty in Nick Margevicius. With a .208/.296/.375 slash line through eight games this season, he's hardly earned an everyday role. Garrett Hampson remains the starter in left field in his absence.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Riding bench again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Sitting against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Notches first steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Giants.

Hilliard's sprint speed ranks in the 81st percentile, per Statcast, and he put that speed to use on the basepaths Wednesday night. It's also encouraging to see him go a game without a strikeout; Hilliard fanned 11 times in his first 20 at-bats this season. He's barreling the ball up when he makes contact, but the connections have been too few and far between early on.

August 3, 2020 04:04 PM
Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is not in the lineup Monday against the Giants.
