Player Outlook
David Hamilton graduated to Triple-A Worcester to start 2023 then got his first taste of MLB, as the Red Sox dealt with injuries and poor production from their middle infield. The speedy Hamilton, who swiped 57 bases for the WooSox in 2023, had two steals and batted .121 in 15 games for Boston. The Red Sox entered the offseason with a glaring need at second base, which put Hamilton's name in the mix, but the acquisition of Vaughn Grissom from Atlanta in the Chris Sale trade should put an end to the notion of Hamilton breaking camp with a full-time gig. Someone with Hamilton's profile - his plus-plus speed is his best asset - needs to get on base with regularity. He draws walks at a decent clip but there's a lot of swing-and-miss, too. All signs point to Hamilton opening the year at Triple-A and on the Mass Pike shuttle between Worcester and Boston.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Absent from Monday's lineup

    Hamilton is not in the lineup for Monday's contest versus the Guardians. Hamilton had started six of the last seven games at shortstop, but he will yield to Ceddanne Rafaela on Monday. Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Wilyer Abreu will become a regular versus righties moving forward, per Rob Bradford of WEEI.com, which would seem to indicate he plans to use Rafaela more at shortstop. It could mean Hamilton squeezed out of regular at-bats.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Another error Friday

    Hamilton went 0-for-3 and committed an error in Friday's 7-0 loss to the Angels. After making an immediate splash in his first game up from the minors -- Hamilton homered in his first at-bat -- the infielder's made errors in two straight games that have led to unearned runs. He was not the only player with defensive miscues, and Red Sox manager Alex Cora doesn't have many options at shortstop, so he needs Hamilton to improve. Romy Gonzalez (wrist) is battling an injury, and the manager has said in the past that Pablo Reyes is not considered an everyday player.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Commits key mistake in loss

    Hamilton went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Orioles. Hamilton notched his first stolen base of the season following a fourth-inning single, but that highlight was wiped out when he failed to step on second base on what looked like a routine double play in the eighth inning. The next batter (Anthony Santander) launched a two-run homer to give Baltimore the lead. From a fantasy perspective, the stolen base far outweighs the defensive lapse, though it'll be important for Hamilton to keep mistakes in the field to a minimum if he's to maintain a significant role in the wake of the season-ending shoulder injury to Trevor Story.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sits against lefty

    Hamilton is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles. Hamilton will take a seat on the bench along with fellow left-handed hitters Reese McGuire, Enmanuel Valdez and Wilyer Abreu as the Red Sox stock up on some extra right-handed bats against Orioles southpaw Cole Irvin. With Trevor Story (shoulder) lost for the season, Hamilton is expected to get an extended look in a strong-side platoon role at shortstop.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Working in platoon at shortstop

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Hamilton and Romy Gonzalez will form a platoon at shortstop while Trevor Story (shoulder) is sidelined, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. The left-handed hitting Hamilton should fill the strong side of the platoon, with Ceddanne Rafaela also expected to see some time in the middle infield. It will be the first extended run of playing time in the big leagues for Hamilton, who shined Sunday in his season debut by going 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a walk.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Summoned from Triple-A

    Boston recalled Hamilton from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Pablo Reyes started at shortstop Saturday and will probably get the first crack at filling in for Trevor Story (shoulder). Hamilton should also be in the mix, though, and is the more interesting of the two players for fantasy purposes after stealing 57 bases at Worcester and another two with the big club in 2023. He was 3-for-18 with two home runs in his first five games with Worcester this season.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Headed to Worcester

    Hamilton was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday. Hamilton made a brief big-league debut in 2023 and struggled to a .121/.256/.182 line across only 39 plate appearances. He's been a prolific base stealer at every minor-league level, which makes him a name to monitor should he get another chance in Boston.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Starts at second base

    Hamilton started at second base and went 1-for-3 with a double in Monday's spring game against Detroit. Hamilton, who can play both middle infield positions, made a second consecutive start at second base since Boston announced Vaughn Grissom (groin) could miss Opening Day. The frontrunner to replace Grissom is Enmanuel Valdez, whose glove is not as sound as Hamilton's but projects a better bat. Hamilton is 3-for-16 over six Grapefruit League games.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sent back to Worcester

    The Red Sox optioned Hamilton to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. With Wilyer Abreu returning from the paternity list, Hamilton will end up being Boston's roster casualty. The 25-year-old infielder is just 4-for-33 across 15 games in the majors this season.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Brought up by Boston

    Hamilton was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. The Red Sox deactivated infielder Pablo Reyes (elbow) and outfielder Wilyer Abreu (paternity list) Monday, so Hamilton was brought up to help fill the void. He'll provide depth in the middle infield while Reyes is on the shelf, but Hamilton may not get the chance to play as frequently as he did in June and July, when he picked up 10 starts at shortstop and hit .138 with two stolen bases over 34 plate appearances in total. While he's with the Red Sox, Hamilton could at least represent a useful option off of the bench thanks to his speed.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Red Sox optioned Hamilton to Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. With Yu Chang (wrist) returning from the 60-day injured list Friday, Hamilton will serve as the Red Sox's roster casualty in order to free up a spot in Boston's crowded infield. Hamilton slashed just .138/.265/.207 over 13 games during his stint in the majors, though he could return later this season if he puts up numbers consistent with his .838 OPS in Triple-A.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Days in big leagues numbered

    Hamilton is expected to be sent down to Triple-A Worcester when the Red Sox activate Yu Chang (wrist) from the injured list Thursday or Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The Red Sox are getting healthier in the middle infield with Chang coming off the IL with Pablo Reyes (abdominal) also likely to be activated in the coming days. Hamilton has filled in the last two weeks with a just a .503 OPS in 12 games, and his time in the majors should end soon.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sitting versus lefty

    Hamilton isn't in the Red Sox's lineup Saturday against Toronto, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports. Yusei Kikuchi is set to start on the mound Saturday for the Jays, so the lefty-hitting Hamilton will begin the game on the bench. Enrique Hernandez will take over at shortstop and bat seventh.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Hamilton is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox. Hamilton started the past three games after being promoted Wednesday and has gone 1-for-9 with a walk, two stolen bases and two runs. Enrique Hernandez will take over at shortstop Sunday.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Logs first MLB hit

    Hamilton went 1-for-3 in Thursday's 6-0 loss to Minnesota. Hamilton made his first MLB start and logged his first career hit in the eighth inning. Pablo Reyes, who had been dealing with abdominal soreness, started at second base but was removed in the fourth inning, suggesting he's still not 100 percent. If Reyes needs time on the injured list, the speedy Hamilton could remain with the Red Sox and get additional starts at shortstop.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Bound for Triple-A

    Boston optioned Hamilton to Triple-A Worcester on Monday. The 25-year-old Hamilton may not be polished enough as a hitter to profile as a realistic everyday player for Boston down the road, but his elite speed was enough to earn a spot on the Red Sox's 40-man roster this offseason. After impressing in a small sample of action in the Grapefruit League -- Hamilton got on base at a .370 clip and went 5-for-5 on stolen-base attempts over his first 13 games -- he'll now get the chance to hone his skills with Boston's top minor-league affiliate to begin the 2023 season.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Joins 40-man roster

    Hamilton was added to Boston's 40-man roster Tuesday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Hamilton is so fast that he could be used as a pinch runner at times now that he is on the 40-man roster. The 25-year-old middle infielder was just a touch above league average as a hitter at Double-A (104 wRC+) but hit 12 home runs with 70 steals in 119 games.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Traded to Red Sox

    Hamilton, Jackie Bradley and Alex Binelas were traded from the Brewers to the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for Hunter Renfroe. Hamilton was an eighth-round pick during the 2019 draft and had his first taste of professional baseball last season. He had a .773 OPS in 68 games at High-A before being promoted to Double-A, where he posted a .727 OPS in 33 contests. The 24-year-old was listed among Milwaukee's top prospects and is unlikely to make his way to the majors in 2022.
