Late in the season unless Reds get hit with injury.


Does the Ludwick injury count? I know Heisey is there other option....just wonder if Reds brain trust flirt with the idea, bring up Hamilton (ideal lead-off guy) move Choo to LF, and then they are set,

Hamilton - CF
Phillips - 2B
Votto - 1B
Choo - LF (switch hitter so keeps there L/R split in tact)
Bruce - RF
Frazier - 3B
Cozart - SS
Hanigan - C

Pretty sure the Reds brass would rather Hamilton first get a bunch of reps playing centerfield in AAA. However, if the Reds were to suffer another OF injury to a regular, all bets are off.

When do you expect him in the "SHOW"? since I got him as a minor league keeper, for $3, and in CBS he still qualifies as a Short Stop,

Hope they call him up in May/June, personally think Choo is over matched in CF.

Total gut feeling - he'll be called up in that timeframe. It's likely that one of the following will happen: team will need a spark, Choo will get injured and/or Choo/Heisey will be inadequate in CF.

Hamilton was pulled for pinchrunner in 4th inning tonight. He had 3 SB's including a steal of home. I can't find specifics on any injury.

Bat's clubhouse issues "no report" on Hamilton's apparent injury.

Reds prospect outfielder Billy Hamilton had to leave Friday's game with Triple-A Louisville due to an apparent shoulder injury.
Hamilton had already displayed his blazing speed in the game with three stolen bases, including a swipe of home. He appeared to injure his shoulder diving back into the base on a pick-off attempt, but the Bats have yet to issue an official update on his status. Apr. 5 - 8:26 pm et

Hamilton is off to a slow start this year. Is he becoming a better version of Dee Gordon as he moves up in the minors?

Batting .190 with a .254 OBP ain't getting him called up anytime soon. Can't steal first base, as they say...
