Reds are on the verge of having two major league freaks of nature. The fastest pitcher and the fastest baserunner.
I don't know. Where are they going to play him? They just signed Ludwick to a decent contract. They just made a huge trade for Choo, who historically speaking, is better than Hamilton could realistically be expected to be in his first season and they also have Jay Bruce, who isn't going anywhere. Hamilton needs to be hitting very well and have some sort of major injury happen in order for him to be up before late August/September IMO. He isn't on the 40 man roster right now, so when they call him up, they aren't going to do so with the idea of sending him back down at any point this season.
