Billy Hamilton‘s nightmare week continues, as Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that the speedy outfielder was scratched from today’s lineup against the Mets due to a jammed left finger. He’s considered day-to-day.
Hamilton jammed the finger he was thrown out by Anthony Recker while attempting to steal second base in the eighth inning last night. He didn’t start the game, but was brought in as a pinch-runner. It was the second time in 15 attempts that he has been thrown out in the big leagues.
Replacing Shin-Soo Choo as the Reds’ center fielder and leadoff man, Hamilton has game-changing speed, but there are questions about whether he’ll hit enough to utilize it. He’s 0-for-12 with six strikeouts and one walk so far this season.
