Re: Baseball America: Southern League Top 20 Prospects (4 Reds)
Power comes later. Hamilton will never hit many out, but he'll get a few, and his speed will up his EBH count. The guy's got some wiry strength, and I've seen him launch a couple line drives (one in the Future Stars game) that showed he can drive the ball with some carry. It's not an aspect of his game that worries me -- I'm more concerned about whether his arm will play in CF, given his throwing mechanics as he transitions from the infield.
