Fantasy Tip: Hamilton has had three steals in two separate games. He's in a 3-for-23 slump, which might explain his stealing inconsistency. He's going to have to prove that he can hit before he sniffs the majors. Learning center field may be affecting him at the plate. Look for him to spend much of the season developing at Triple-A.

Fantasy Tip: While Hamilton's speed is already elite compared to his major league counterparts, his stick needs plenty of work and seasoning in the minors if he's to become an everyday outfielder and potential leadoff man. If you're speculating on a midseason call-up, be prepared to have Hamilton eat away at a bench spot in mixed universes.
