Latest Update Billy Hamilton drives in two with eighth triple Sat Sep, 13, 10:40 PM
Has ridiculously good speed and supreme quickness down the line to first base. Is an elite base-stealer who puts a ton of pressure on defenses. He's also becoming a more patient hitter at the dish, which only helps him.
Flaws: : Needs to learn the intricacies of playing center field, after coming up the ranks as a middle infielder. Also, he lacks power (mainly because of his slight frame). Must avoid injury, while maintaining his aggressiveness.
September has been another brutal month for both Hamilton and his fantasy owners. He's batting just .150 (6-for-40) this month and what's worse is that he's got just one stolen base in 12 games. The lousy batting average, people can handle. They've handled it throughout much of the season. But no stolen bases when fantasy owners are in dire need right now isn't going to endear him to anyone. He's goign to need to pick it up again soon.Analyst: Howard Bender
Billy Hamilton is getting the day off. The rookie has lived up to his billing on the base paths with his 55 swipes this season. Zach Cosart will get the start this evening against the Cardinals.Analyst: Drew Phelps

What doesn't show up in the box score is that Hamilton also ended first base umpire Mike DiMuro's night running straight into him on an infield single. He's 9 for his last 26 (.346) and has 6 stolen bases over that span as well. His season line, however, isn't overly impressive (.269/.305/.382). If he were to improve his on-base skills to the tune of OBP's between .320-.325, he'd be in consideration for a first round pick in 2015 (in 5x5, that is). Analyst: Spencer Silva
