Hamilton's struggle will always be getting on base. I see his OBP now, and while it is impressive, I have my doubts about his ability to get on base at the major league level. I certainly think talk of promotion to themajor leagues is premature until he has a full season of AA and a full season of AAA under his belt.
Right now I see Hamilton as another novelty carnival act - like Chapman and his 100+ mph fastball. What does he offer when he is no longer able to run?
I am not opposed to calling Hamilton up this September, to use solely as a pinch runner or a spot start once a week. But he should head back to the minors to start next season.
