A really good hitter? The guy is nice to have in the system, but he isn't a "really good hitter". He is a single hitter who plays a corner position.

Daniel Guerrero has to be the mystery of the week. What are the Reds doing with that guy? Never threw hard, never showed anything, awful in 2008, got hurt in 2009. Not sure why they are being so patient. RH who threw 88 before he got hurt and wasn't ever anything more than mediocre at best.

Interesting that not a single 2010 draft pick played in Billings' season opener. I would wonder if that has EVER happened before in their long history. Maybe they wanted to reward the guys who went through the grind of extended spring training. Nice opening night win for the Mustangs.

Not only does it run, it purrs as you drive it around casually on city streets. Onlookers remark about its performance, but then you try to take it up to 70 on the highway and you're left calling a tow truck a minute later.

Good athlete, solid tools across the board. Capable of playing all three outfield positions. I'm surprised he didn't start the season in Billings after impressing in the GCL last season.

From the Billings Gazette:


Billy Hamilton put a graceful end to a thrilling night for the Billings Mustangs.

The Mustangs’ shortstop ranged to his right, leapt high, and snagged a line drive to finish off the Great Falls Voyagers in the Pioneer League opener Monday night at Dehler Park.

Hamilton’s fluid play was just the final of many Mustangs’ highlights in the 11-3 win. Playing in front of 3,130 fans, the Mustangs banged 16 hits — six for extra bases — showed some impressive speed, and played flashy defense despite making two errors.



DeShields said Guerrero, as well as pitcher Tzu-Kai Chiu are both in Billings on 30-day injury rehab assignments. They could both be gone before the 30 days are up, however.

Great to see all the offense from the rookie league teams on opening night. It appears they're trying to form a core, high-ceiling team at Billings that will move through the system together, similar to the group that's in Louisville now. We'll see what kind of pitching joins them (Jacob Johnson, Cline, Tuttle are the lead guys now).

Agree completely. However, I wouldn't be surprised if that team struggled more than we would like to see. A lot of the players are very young and unpolished and have not yet sustained any success as professionals. Juan Duran, for instance, for all his celebrated potential, has struggled mightily since day one.

That, to me, is why the result of the opener was so cool. For at least one night, potential met performance.

Milb.com is notorious for making a switch to a players profile. Since he was a RHH when drafted, even if he starts hitting solely LH, it probably wouldn't be changed for 2-3 years. Juan Francisco was in AA and still listed as a switch hitter and 180 pounds before it was changed. He never did either of those things in the US. They just never made the change.

And as for Hamilton, he is considered an above average to plus shortstop. Its more about whether his bat develops because defensively, the kid has some serious tools.

As amazing as that is to watch . . . Note the angle of the ball off the bat. When you see the ball headed in that direction, you know that nobody's gonna catch it. I'd be curious to see where Hamilton was playing that guy. It's possible that he was shaded over toward third base . . . but it's a left-handed hitter! That's simply not a ball that gets caught by a normal shortstop playing in a normal place. Not even close.
