Billy Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a triple, one RBI and a run scored during the Reds' 4-0 win over the Indians on Thursday. He was also caught stealing for the 17th time this season.
Hamilton has now hit safely in six of his last seven games with three multi-hit performances and is batting .271 on the season. Nice right? Not to mention the 43 steals too. But while those numbers seem fairly solid, his .298 OBP and just two steals over his last 13 games continue to hammer home the point that fantasy owners overreacted in drafts this season and aren't getting the production they expected back in April. If you drafted Hamilton and failed to find a solid stolen base complement to him, you 're likely suffering in the category when you thought you'd be leading it by now. Lesson learned? We hope so.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Whiteside went to the bench with an ankle injury.
Whiteside injured the ankle or foot on a rebound and came up limping a bit, so with him just recently coming back from a hip injury it's likely a precautionary move to take him out. He was effective in Sunday's loss however with a double-double off the bench behind starter A'mare Stoudemire. More updates to follow once the extent of the injury and timeframe are better known.
