Latest Update Hamilton collects two more stolen bases in Reds loss Fri Aug, 29, 10:06 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.
The two stolen bases bring Hamilton to 53 on the season to go with a .268 batting average but a dreadful .304 OBP. Hamilton is hitting .259 with 17 runs, six RBI and 11 stolen bases in the month of August.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
This has truly been a great season for Hamilton up to this point. Obviously he isn't going to steal 100 bases this season, but he's been above average on every level and will most certainly vault up draft boards next spring. He has held his own in his first full season and fantasy owners have to be thrilled about that.Analyst: David Kerr
After going 0-for-10 over his last three games, Hamilton got himself back on track Wednesday night as he continues to have a respectable season in his first full year in the big leagues. Despite sitting on 50 stolen bases, Hamilton has struggled to get on base over the course of the year, sitting on a .297 on-base percentage while taking only 23 walks in just under 500 at-bats. Until he learns to be more selective at the plate he will fall short of reaching his full potential, but at the age of 23, there is still plenty of time for him to improve. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With three stolen bases on Friday night, Hamilton is now sitting on 49 on the season, which now leaves him eight behind Dee Gordon in the category in all of baseball. Hamilton is having himself a very respectable first full season in Cincinnati, sitting on a .269 average with six home runs, 44 RBI and 66 runs scores, but will need to work on his .300 on-base percentage before ever reaching his full potential at the big league level.
