Hampson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Hampson started the past 10 games and had a .625 OPS during that stretch, and he'll head to the bench for Sunday's series finale. Yonathan Daza will start in center field and bat eighth for Colorado.
Hamspon went 2-for-2 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Giants.
Hamspon wasn't in the starting lineup, but he entered the game in the ninth inning as a pinch-hitter and promptly smacked a go-ahead home run. It was his third homer of the season, all of which have come in his last nine games. Hampson is now hitting .260/.314/.455 with nine RBI, 17 runs scored and five stolen bases across 86 plate appearances for the season.
Hampson will sit Tuesday against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Hampson sits after starting five straight games. He's hitting just .240/.298/.400 on the season and is on pace for his third straight year with an OPS below .700, but he does at least have five steals. Ryan McMahon moves to second base in his absence, with Josh Fuentes starting at third.
Hampson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Phillies.
Hampson came up big for the Rockies in the eighth inning, drilling a 411-foot solo shot to left field to tie the score.

Through 16 games, Hampson has five stolen bases, a homer, seven RBI, 14 runs scored and a .254/.313/.373 slash line. His versatility on defense will allow him to maintain a fair amount of playing time.
Hampson will be on the bench for Tuesday's game against the Astros.
Hampson finds himself out of the lineup for the second time in four games after starting 12 of the first 13 contests. His .236/.302/.345 line doesn't exactly suggest he deserves an everyday role, though he's at least helped fantasy teams out with four steals. Yonathan Daza starts in center field in his absence.
Hampson is not in the lineup for the afternoon portion of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.
Hampson will sit for just the second time this season, though those who have him on their fantasy teams may not mind that he'll avoid facing Jacob deGrom. He'll likely return to the lineup for the nightcap against the far-less-intimidating Joey Lucchesi.
Hampson went 1-for-5 with a home run and two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.
After Ryan McMahon hit his sixth long ball, Hampson finally hit his first, a solo shot in the third inning off lefty Julio Urias. Hampson had a .047 ISO entering this game and still only has a .637 OPS on the season, but he's running from atop the order (four steals), and the light should remain green on this squad with essentially nothing to lose.
Hampson will bat leadoff and man second base Sunday against the Giants, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
After hitting eighth Opening Day, Hampson has now batted first or second in the order in eight consecutive contests, including five straight turns out of the leadoff spot. The promotion up the batting order has provided Hampson with more running opportunities, with the 26-year-old going 4-for-5 in his stolen-base attempts on the season. Hampson is still sitting on a rather underwhelming .324 on-base average for the season, so he may need to show improvement at the plate to ensure he sticks atop the lineup for an extended period.
Hampson went 2-for-3 with two singles, two walks, three steals, an RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 8-0 win over the Diamondbacks.
Hampson stuffed the stat sheet Wednesday, delivering his most complete game in recent memory. The 26-year-old stole second each of the first three times he got on base. Hampson had not stolen a bag this season prior to Wednesday, so it was a pleasant surprise to see him do it three times in one game. He's fared particularly well in the leadoff spot thus far, gathering at least one hit in five of six games while totaling five RBI and six runs.
Hampson went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and two RBI in the 4-2 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.
Hampson's two-run double got the Rockies on the board and within two runs in the eighth inning. The 26-year-old is looking to improve on a 2020 season in which he started out hot but ultimately batted .234 with 60 strikeouts in 184 at-bats. His defensive versatility allows himself to be in the lineup consistently for more plate appearances.
Hampson is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Dodgers.
Hampson started in center field Opening Day and will head to the bench after going 1-for-3 with two runs, one RBI and one walk. Chris Owings will start in center field Friday with right-hander Trevor Bauer on the mound for Los Angeles.
Hampson went 1-for-2 with a walk, two stolen bases and two runs in Wednesday's 9-8 spring win over the Brewers.
Hampson batted second in Wednesday's lineup and hit a bunt single in the first inning before stealing two bases. He's mainly been playing in center field this spring but could also fill in at second base over the first few weeks of the season with Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) sidelined. The 26-year-old has posted a .408 on-base percentage with four RBI, four stolen bases and 10 runs across 18 Cactus League games.
Hampson has gone 5-for-20 with four runs, two RBI, one stolen base and one strikeout over his first nine Cactus League games in 2021.
Hampson has a chance to play at second base this season, but he's primarily played center field early in camp while Brendan Rodgers carves out playing time at the keystone, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Hampson had a hot start to the season in 2020 but faltered down the stretch while being moved throughout the batting order. The 26-year-old has been focusing on showcasing his speed more this spring and should have a more consistent role near the bottom of the batting order. While most of his playing time to begin the season could come in center field, Hampson's defensive versatility should allow him to carve out regular at-bats between the outfield and at second base.
Hampson is "in the mix" in center field to begin spring training, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Manager Bud Black said Wednesday that the center field position is "open" heading into 2021, and Hampson is certainly an option to play at the position to begin the regular season. If he moves to the outfield, Ryan McMahon and Brendan Rodgers (shoulder) would compete for the starting job at second base ahead of Opening Day. Hampson appeared in 53 games for the Rockies during the 2020 campaign, slashing .234/.287/.383 with five home runs and 11 RBI.

Hampson isn't in Monday's lineup against the Padres.
Hampson was dominant Sunday as he went 2-for-4 with a triple, one RBI and a stolen base against the Dodgers, and he'll take a breather for Monday's series opener against San Diego. Ryan McMahon will shift to second base with Daniel Murphy starting at first.
