Some Hampson owners were rolling their eyes when they heard of the Murphy signing as they thought it meant Hampson would be blocked at the keystone. However, it sounds like Murphy, after battling knee issues in recent seasons, will play mostly at first with Ian Desmond moving to the outfield. Hampson didn't do much in his first cup of coffee last season, but his impressive speed is making him a trendy mid-round target in early drafts.
Hampson is not in the lineup Monday against the Phillies, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Hampson started four of the last five games at shortstop with Trevor Story (elbow) sidelined, slashing .286/.375/.357 with a stolen base over that stretch. With Story back in action, the 23-year-old is set to return to a reserve role for the final week of the season.
Hampson is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth Tuesday against the Dodgers, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
The 23-year-old prospect is set to make his first start since rejoining the Rockies near the beginning of September in place of the injured Trevor Story (elbow). With Story potentially facing a season-ending injury, Hampson could be in line for increased opportunities over the final couple weeks. The rookie has hit .261/.414/.391 across 29 big-league plate appearances this season.
Hampson was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Hampson, one of the team's top prospects, has appeared in 10 games for the Rockies this season, slashing .273/.407/.409 across those contests. He slashed a combined .311/.382/.462 across 110 games between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque. Hampson will likely be limited to a reserve role down the stretch barring any injury crisis.
Hampson was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Hampson will take the roster spot of Scott Oberg, who was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding roster move. Seeing as players typically spend between one and three days on the paternity list, Hampson's stay with the big club could be brief. The 23-year-old, who hit .300/.417/.450 during a seven-game stint with the Rockies earlier in the season, will serve as additional infield depth with Nolan Arenado nursing a shoulder injury.
