Player Outlook
David Hamilton graduated to Triple-A Worcester to start 2023 then got his first taste of MLB, as the Red Sox dealt with injuries and poor production from their middle infield. The speedy Hamilton, who swiped 57 bases for the WooSox in 2023, had two steals and batted .121 in 15 games for Boston. The Red Sox entered the offseason with a glaring need at second base, which put Hamilton's name in the mix, but the acquisition of Vaughn Grissom from Atlanta in the Chris Sale trade should put an end to the notion of Hamilton breaking camp with a full-time gig. Someone with Hamilton's profile - his plus-plus speed is his best asset - needs to get on base with regularity. He draws walks at a decent clip but there's a lot of swing-and-miss, too. All signs point to Hamilton opening the year at Triple-A and on the Mass Pike shuttle between Worcester and Boston.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sitting versus southpaw

    Hamilton is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Yankees, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Hamilton will get a breather as Boston squares off against southpaw Carlos Rodon. The 26-year-old Hamilton saw his five-game hit streak come to an end Friday, but he's still batting .308 with two home runs, five RBI, six runs scored and five stolen bases over his last nine games. Ceddanne Rafaela will draw the start at shortstop and bat ninth against New York.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Moves up in batting order

    Hamilton batted second and went 1-for-5 with a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 9-3 win over Philadelphia. Hamilton's good stretch of hitting led to him batting second for the second consecutive game against a right-hander, and the shortstop extended his hit streak to five games. Since mid-May, when manager Alex Cora started giving him regular run in the starting lineup, Hamilton has slashed .341/.378/.553 with 11 extra-base hits, nine RBI, 14 runs and 10 steals over 26 contests.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Homer, two hits in win

    Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the Phillies. Hamilton singled and came around to score in the fifth inning then hit a two-run homer off Spencer Turnbull in the sixth. Hamilton has been on fire in June, notching his fourth straight multi-hit effort and hitting .333 with two home runs and four stolen bases in 10 games. Injuries have paved the way for Hamilton to receive regular playing time, but he has earned it by hitting .296 with four homers, 10 RBI and 13 steals over 135 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Homers, swipes another bag

    Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and an additional run during Sunday's 6-4 extra-inning win over the White Sox. Hamilton clubbed his third home run of the season Sunday, taking Chris Flexen yard in the fifth inning. He also scored the game-tying run in the ninth, reaching on a double off Tanner Banks and stealing third base before scoring on a sac fly by Reese McGuire. Hamilton finished the four-game series against the White Sox having gone 6-for-17 (.353) with four stolen bases, two doubles, a homer and three runs scored.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Steals base in loss

    Hamilton started at shortstop and went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the White Sox. Hamilton got the start at shortstop, as Ceddanne Rafaela was needed in Boston's short-staffed outfield. Tyler O'Neill's balky knee will keep him out of Sunday's series finale, which likely means another start for Hamilton. He's stolen three bases over the last two games and has 12 over 40 games.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Swipes two bags off bench

    Hamilton entered Friday's game after Tyler O'Neill (knee) was removed and went 0-for-3 with two steals in a 7-2 loss to the White Sox. After O'Neill's removal, the Red Sox made several adjustments, including Hamilton entering at shortstop and Ceddanne Rafaela moving to the outfield. Hamilton now has 11 steals for the season, second on the team. The Red Sox are dealing with several outfield injuries -- O'Neill, Wilyer Abreu (ankle) and Masataka Yoshida (thumb) -- and may not be able to get by with Rafaela at shortstop in the short term. In that event, Hamilton could be a regular at short.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Pilfers ninth bag

    Hamilton went 3-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 7-3 win over the Tigers. Getting the start at shortstop and batting eighth, Hamilton produced his second three-hit performance in the last eight games. The 26-year-old infielder has claimed a regular spot in Boston's starting lineup over the second half of May, and through the last 14 games he's slashing .375/.432/.575 with three doubles, a triple, a homer, four RBI, seven runs and five of his nine stolen bases on the season.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Resurgence continues

    Hamilton started at shortstop and went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Brewers. Hamilton started for the seventh time in the last eight games and is batting .375 with a 1.108 OPS during that stretch. With Hamilton producing at the plate and improving defensively, manager Alex Cora can deploy him at shortstop while moving Ceddanne Rafaela back to center field. Add in Jarren Duran and the Red Sox have some speedsters that can put pressure on the opposition. After a shaky start, Hamilton is up to .261/.320/.435 with five steals.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Steals, scores in win

    Hamilton started at second base and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 5-0 win over Tampa. Hamilton made his fourth start in the last six games and has hit safely in five straight. Once a forgotten man on the roster -- he started just 12 times and had 50 plate appearances over 35 games after being called up April 6 -- Hamilton is 6-for-15 with four extra-base hits, three runs and three RBI during the hit streak. Vaughn Grissom (.135) has yet to establish himself as the everyday second baseman, so there is an opportunity for Hamilton to become a fantasy-relevant option.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Swipes bag in Saturday's start

    Hamilton went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Twins. Getting the start at second base and batting eighth, Hamilton swiped his third bag in 15 games for the Red Sox. The 26-year-old infielder is slashing just .214/.283/.310, however, and he offers little else for fantasy purposes. With Vaughn Grissom having recovered from the hamstring strain that cost him the first month-plus of the season and Ceddanne Rafaela still entrenched at shortstop, Hamilton has no clear path to consistent playing time.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Expected to start Saturday

    Hamilton is expected to start at second base Saturday, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Vaughn Grissom was activated Friday and made his season debut as the starting second baseman, but he'll be held out of the lineup for Saturday's afternoon game following a night game. Hamilton will be playing for the first time since April 27 and making his first start since April 25.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Limited to bench role

    Hamilton is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Hamilton will take a seat for the fifth straight contest and looks as though he won't be in store for a regular role at shortstop in the wake of Trevor Story's season-ending shoulder injury. Instead, the Red Sox have moved Ceddanne Rafaela from the outfield to shortstop, opening up a regular spot in the corner outfield for Wilyer Abreu.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Commits key mistake in loss

    Hamilton went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Orioles. Hamilton notched his first stolen base of the season following a fourth-inning single, but that highlight was wiped out when he failed to step on second base on what looked like a routine double play in the eighth inning. The next batter (Anthony Santander) launched a two-run homer to give Baltimore the lead. From a fantasy perspective, the stolen base far outweighs the defensive lapse, though it'll be important for Hamilton to keep mistakes in the field to a minimum if he's to maintain a significant role in the wake of the season-ending shoulder injury to Trevor Story.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sits against lefty

    Hamilton is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles. Hamilton will take a seat on the bench along with fellow left-handed hitters Reese McGuire, Enmanuel Valdez and Wilyer Abreu as the Red Sox stock up on some extra right-handed bats against Orioles southpaw Cole Irvin. With Trevor Story (shoulder) lost for the season, Hamilton is expected to get an extended look in a strong-side platoon role at shortstop.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Working in platoon at shortstop

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Hamilton and Romy Gonzalez will form a platoon at shortstop while Trevor Story (shoulder) is sidelined, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. The left-handed hitting Hamilton should fill the strong side of the platoon, with Ceddanne Rafaela also expected to see some time in the middle infield. It will be the first extended run of playing time in the big leagues for Hamilton, who shined Sunday in his season debut by going 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a walk.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Summoned from Triple-A

    Boston recalled Hamilton from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Pablo Reyes started at shortstop Saturday and will probably get the first crack at filling in for Trevor Story (shoulder). Hamilton should also be in the mix, though, and is the more interesting of the two players for fantasy purposes after stealing 57 bases at Worcester and another two with the big club in 2023. He was 3-for-18 with two home runs in his first five games with Worcester this season.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Headed to Worcester

    Hamilton was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday. Hamilton made a brief big-league debut in 2023 and struggled to a .121/.256/.182 line across only 39 plate appearances. He's been a prolific base stealer at every minor-league level, which makes him a name to monitor should he get another chance in Boston.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Starts at second base

    Hamilton started at second base and went 1-for-3 with a double in Monday's spring game against Detroit. Hamilton, who can play both middle infield positions, made a second consecutive start at second base since Boston announced Vaughn Grissom (groin) could miss Opening Day. The frontrunner to replace Grissom is Enmanuel Valdez, whose glove is not as sound as Hamilton's but projects a better bat. Hamilton is 3-for-16 over six Grapefruit League games.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sent back to Worcester

    The Red Sox optioned Hamilton to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. With Wilyer Abreu returning from the paternity list, Hamilton will end up being Boston's roster casualty. The 25-year-old infielder is just 4-for-33 across 15 games in the majors this season.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Brought up by Boston

    Hamilton was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. The Red Sox deactivated infielder Pablo Reyes (elbow) and outfielder Wilyer Abreu (paternity list) Monday, so Hamilton was brought up to help fill the void. He'll provide depth in the middle infield while Reyes is on the shelf, but Hamilton may not get the chance to play as frequently as he did in June and July, when he picked up 10 starts at shortstop and hit .138 with two stolen bases over 34 plate appearances in total. While he's with the Red Sox, Hamilton could at least represent a useful option off of the bench thanks to his speed.
