Looks like Billy Hamilton is heading to the DL

7 Comments

Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton has missed four straight starts due to a sprain of the third and fourth knuckles on his left hand suffered during a diving catch last Thursday. The hope was that a few days rest would have him back in shape, but he tried to take batting practice today and couldn’t grip the bat. Looks like the disabled list is in Hamilton’s future.

Hamilton started the season slowly, but had been steadily improving over the past few weeks.
