He's not a power hitter, but right now he's showing the ability to be a very effective hitter and an extremely valuable hitter. Hamilton is a top tier prospect for sure. He doesn't need to hit homeruns to be one of the better hitting prospects in the league -- the fact that he can likely leg out almost any infield hit and turn it into 1 or 2 more bases with his speed makes him almost as effective from a pure hitting standpoint.
He only has 1 homerun. His speed can be attributed to his slugging more than anything else.
