    Billy Hamilton moving to CF

    Hamilton would have to hit .600 in 2013 spring training to make Reds as it seems they would prefer to stall his arbitration clock. A big question is will he hit MLB pitching so soon and young. IMO, he could hit .235 with the Reds and could swipe 50 bases. It wouldn't take much to upgrade what the Reds had in the #1 batting order slot in 2012 .... a .208 BA and .254 OBP.

    • he's 22, so he'll spend the year at AAA. With better pitching and fielding at the MLB level I don't know if he can keep up a .360 BABIP, which for him translated to a .280 average, so he needs more time. IF he can hit .280, and maintain say a 10% walk rate then you would be looking at a 2 1/2 cat player, with R north of 100-110 and SB in the same range. Wonder how that would grade out in standard leagues for a season?

      regardless, 2014 for him...
