I think you're right. That's the same thing I've seen reported repeatedly based on scouts and people who really watched Hamilton closely. I don't think the Reds have one iota of concern as to whether Hamilton's arm is strong enough for CF. Besides, arm strength is much more important to the SS position than CF - based both on the number of plays required to be made and the nature of those plays (i.e, bang-bang plays at 1st).
