2019 MLB FREE AGENT CENTER FIELDERS
Billy Hamilton – Signed with the Kansas City Royals on a one-year, $5 million dollar contract. (12/10/2018)
- Last month, Billy Hamilton was non-tendered by the Cincinnati Reds which landed him on the free agent market but, he quickly found a home with Kansas City. Billy Hamilton got a lot of recognition in the minors for his elite talent speed but not much for his hitting which has been the biggest concern. In 2018, Hamilton had a stepback season on the base path as he stole 36 bases compared to the average 55 the prior four seasons. Also, Hamilton finished 2018 off below average having a batting line of .236/.299/.327 in a full season with Cincinnati. Hamilton will provide a solid defensive player in their outfield and phenomenal speed on the base path. Hamilton is one piece in the on-going rebuild for the Kansas City Royals.
