Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

Hampson has started in only three of the Rockies' eight games to date, which suggests the team views him as more of a utility man than an everyday player. Other than having Ian Desmond (personal) opt out of the 2020 season, the Rockies have otherwise had all their key position players available since Opening Day, leaving Hampson without a clear avenue to regular at-bats.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Likely in utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson likely will begin the season in a reserve role and could operate as a utility player, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The addition of the designated hitter to the National League this season should bring additional opportunities, but it appears to be a more indirect benefit for the 25-year-old. Beyond the utility usage, Hampson should see somewhat regular time at the keystone as starter Ryan McMahon should cover first base when Daniel Murphy serves as the DH. However, top prospect Brendan Rodgers and veteran Chris Owings are also in the mix as options at second base.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Battling for utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson is battling for a bench role and could see time in the outfield and middle infield if he makes the big-league roster, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The delay to start of the season complicates Hampson's situation, as top prospect Brendan Rodgers (shoulder) may be fully healthy by the time games resume. On the other hand, Hampson's ability to play up the middle -- both in the infield and outfield -- could help him earn a bench role. He didn't do much to bolster his case in exhibition action, hitting just .226/.286/.290 with eight strikeouts in 35 plate appearances.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Slugs two round trippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 3-for-6 with a pair of solo home runs and two walks in Tuesday's 16-inning victory over the Giants.

Hampson went deep in the first inning to kick off the scoring and clubbed another long ball to break a 4-4 tie in the eighth. After hitting only three home runs through the first 120 games of his big-league career, the 24-year-old has suddenly found his power stroke, going yard four times in the last four games. Hampson is doing his best to leave a strong impression upon the Rockies as he vies for a starting job next season, slashing .371/.435/.677 with five homers, seven RBI, 16 runs scored, seven stolen bases and a 1.112 OPS in September.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Goes yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Hampson put the Rockies on the board with a solo homer to center field in the first inning. The 24-year-old was hitting only .218 on Sept. 10 but has raised his average to .247 over his last 10 games by going 16-for-38. He has also slugged three homers while racking up five steals over that span.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Steals base in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 1-for-3 with a stolen base, a run and a walk in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Hampson drew a one-out walk in the third inning and then promptly stole second to get into scoring position. He came around to score on a Raimel Tapia single. Speed has been Hampson's best asset, as he's recorded five stolen bases in his last six games while hitting .500 (10-for-20) in that span. For the year, the 24-year-old is slashing .247/.303/.369 with five homers, 36 runs scored and 23 RBI over 289 plate appearances.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a stolen base and another run scored in Friday's loss at Dodger Stadium.

Hampson extended the Rockies' lead with a 392-foot solo homer off Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning. He also reached on a infield single, stole second and scored on an RBI single by Tony Wolters in the first. The long ball was his fifth of the season while batting .246/.300/.369 with 12 stolen bases across 97 games. Thanks to his recent power surge at the plate, Hampson is expected to see ample playing time during the final stretch of the regular season.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Takes seat after three-hit night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

Hampson will head to the bench after a productive stretch of five consecutive starts, during which he compiled 11 hits in 22 at-bats while chipping in a stolen base, eight runs and three RBI. The offensive surge has helped Hampson lift his season average from .218 to .243 and should allow him to see steady playing time in the Rockies' final 11 games of the campaign.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Scores three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 3-for-4 with a walk, stolen base and three runs Sunday in the Rockies' 10-5 win over the Padres.

Hampson started each of the Rockies' last four games and has taken advantage of the regular run, going 8-for-18 with seven runs over that stretch. He'll stick in the lineup as the No. 7 hitter for Monday's series opener with the Mets and looks poised to benefit from steady run in center field or the middle infield while he's wielding a hot bat.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Seeing steady work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson will start in center field and bat sixth Sunday against the Padres.

He'll remain in the lineup for the seventh time in eight games, with four of those starts coming in center field. Hampson should continue to benefit from steady work in the outfield so long as David Dahl (ankle) is on the shelf, making the rookie someone worth taking a look at for fantasy managers in need of an infusion of speed. Over his last 10 games, Hampson is batting .280 with three stolen bases.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Drills third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Sunday in the Rockies' 11-4 loss to the Cardinals.

The long ball was Hampson's third of the season and his first extra-base hit since Aug. 3. The speedy rookie will be back in the lineup Monday against the Braves as the Rockies' center fielder and No. 7 hitter, but Hampson may transition back into more of a part-time role once Raimel Tapia (hand) is healthy again.

August 25, 2019 02:24 PM
Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Seeing rare start in center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Cardinals.

He'll draw some rare action in the outfield with Raimel Tapia (hand) banged up and Ian Desmond receiving Sunday off for maintenance purposes. The rookie has unsurprisingly struggled to get going at the plate while seeing inconsistent playing time in August, batting 6-for-30 with 15 strikeouts on the month.

July 25, 2019 10:04 PM
Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Nationals.

Hampson took Max Scherzer deep in the fourth inning to record his second home run of the season. He was in the starting lineup for just the second time in the last five games and has collected only seven hits in 31 at-bats for the month. More positively, he has managed to get on base at a .389 clip and swipe two bases in that span. Despite hints of promise, Hampson is hitting .213/.372/.316 line across 170 plate appearances for the season.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Manning keystone in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson will start at second base and bat seventh Thursday against the Nationals.

The Rockies' decision to give Nolan Arenado a breather following Wednesday's doubleheader will allow Hampson to stick in the starting nine after the rookie also manned the keystone in the nightcap. With a 4-for-4 success rate on stolen-base attempts since rejoining the Rockies in late June, Hampson has been more active as a runner than he was earlier in the season, but he's yet to settle into a groove at the dish. He's recorded only five hits in 25 at-bats in July, though the seven walks he's drawn have propped his on-base percentage up to .375.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Picks up stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson went 0-for-2 with a stolen base and a walk in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

The 24-year-old made his first start in July and recorded his fourth stolen base of the year in the second inning, but he was lifted for a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. Hampson is hitting .200 with 17 runs scored, eight RBI and one homer in 44 games this season.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Sixth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson will start at shortstop and bat seventh Sunday against the Dodgers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Since Brendan Rodgers (shoulder) joined Trevor Story (thumb) on the injured list June 25, Hampson has taken over as the Rockies' primary shortstop. Hampson will pick up his sixth straight start Sunday after going 5-for-20 with two doubles, a triple, four runs, two RBI and a stolen base in the prior five contests.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Rejoins Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

Hampson had a brief stint in the majors at the beginning of June but returns to the Rockies after spending a couple weeks at Triple-A. The 24-year-old will immediately slot into the starting nine, batting second and manning center field.

June 7, 2019 05:12 PM
Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Heading to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Hampson rejoined the Rockies last weekend and went 0-for-4 with two walks in his four games with the team. The 24-year-old is slashing .186/.231/.258 with one home run in 105 plate appearances over his two major-league stints this season.

June 2, 2019 01:36 PM
Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque and will start in center field Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Hampson was sent to Triple-A in mid-May after struggling through the first six weeks of the season with a .194/.224/.269 slash line in 31 games. The 24-year-old rediscovered his bat with Albuquerque and had an .889 OPS since his demotion.

Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hampson was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Hampson was hitting just .194 in 31 games and had fallen well out of the regular rotation in Colorado's infield, so the Rockies will send him back to Albuquerque in the hopes that everyday playing time will help him get on track at the dish. Pat Valaika is expected to be called up in the corresponding roster move.
