Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.

Hilliard was called up by the Rockies on Monday and appeared off the bench in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. He scored a run but will return to Triple-A now that the minor-league season is underway. Hilliard has hit .108 with two home runs and four RBI in 20 major-league games to begin the season.

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

Hilliard was recalled by the Rockies on Monday.

Hilliard was sent down Thursday after hitting .108/.154/.324 through his first 39 plate appearances, striking out 19 times. It's not clear if he'll be able to carve out regular at-bats this time around unless his performances dramatically improve. Carlos Estevez (finger) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Sent down by Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was optioned to the Rockies' alternate training site Thursday.

Hilliard slashed .108/.154/.324 with two home runs and four RBI to begin the season but only started six of his 19 appearances. He'll now attempt to right the ship at the alternate training site but could return to the major-league club if the Rockies need outfield depth. Matt Adams' contract was selected by the Rockies in a corresponding move, while right-hander Ashton Goudeau was designated for assignment.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Not starting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

Hilliard started in center field in Game 1 but struggled at the plate, going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. Garrett Hampson will shift to center field with Ryan McMahon starting at second base in the nightcap.

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

Hilliard isn't starting Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Hilliard will take a seat for the second time in the last three games after he went hitless with two strikeouts in four at-bats Wednesday. Garrett Hampson will take over in center field Thursday while Josh Fuentes enters the lineup at third base.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers, reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two walks in a 13-inning loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Hilliard smacked a clutch solo homer to right field in the ninth inning to tie the game at five, though Colorado ultimately succumbed in the 13th frame. The 27-year-old has hit two homers on the season but has played only sporadically and has struck out in four of his nine at-bats.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Clubs first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Dodgers.

The 27-year-old entered the game in the sixth inning and still got in a solid complement of at-bats while taking David Price deep as part of a six-run seventh for the Rockies. Hilliard hasn't started either of the Rockies' first two games, a somewhat worrying sign for his playing time this season, and he may need the Colorado outfield to get a little less crowded to move into a larger role.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Friday's spring win over Cleveland.

Hilliard took part in a three-run second inning Friday by hitting his first home run of the spring with no outs in the frame. He was unable to generate any results in his other two at-bats but has now gone 9-for-35 with nine runs, seven RBI, four stolen bases, six walks and 12 strikeouts over 15 Cactus League games. With Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) out for at least a month, Hilliard could potentially carve out extra playing time in the outfield to begin the regular season if Garrett Hampson sees time at second base.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Swipes bag in spring win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-2 with one RBI, one run, one stolen base, one walk and one strikeout in Saturday's spring win over the Angels.

Hilliard got on base in the top of the second inning by drawing a walk, and he stole his second base of the spring before the end of the frame. He later contributed during the team's seven-run explosion in the fourth inning by driving in a run with a single before he was brought in to score later in the frame. Hilliard has now driven in one run during each of his last three games and is 3-for-10 with three RBI, two stolen bases, two walks and two strikeouts to begin Cactus League play.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is not in the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Hilliard is hitless in his last 13 at-bats and finds himself on the bench for the second time in the last three games. Raimel Tapia, Garrett Hampson and Kevin Pillar will start in the outfield Saturday, while Charlie Blackmon serves as the designated hitter.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Out of Game 1 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader at Arizona.

The 26-year-old rejoined the major-league club at the start of the week and started three of four games since being promoted, but he'll head to the bench for Friday's matinee. Hilliard is 1-for-13 with six strikeouts since being recalled and has a .719 OPS with six homers in 32 games overall this season. Matt Kemp serves as the designated hitter while Raimel Tapia, Kevin Pillar and Charlie Blackmon start from left to right in the outfield.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Friday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hilliard put the Rockies ahead with a solo home run off Dustin May in the fifth inning. It was the sixth long ball of the year for the 26-year-old, who is averaging .250/.321/.526 overall.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 26-year-old entered Wednesday's contest with only six RBI all season, but he added three more to that total with a two-run homer and an RBI single. Hilliard has a .250/.325/.500 slash line with five home runs in 80 plate appearances.
