Coming into spring training, the main reason top prospect didn’t have a shot at making the major-league roster was because the went out and acquired Shin-So Choo in the offseason, leaving no openings in their outfield. Since then, they’ve lost starting left fielder Ryan Ludwick and his replacement, Chris Heisey, to injury. So wheeeeere’s Billy?

Stuck at Triple-A, unfortunately. He picked the worst possible time to go into an offensive funk, batting .205 in 88 at-bats. He’s still running like crazy, swiping 15 bags in 16 attempts, but the Reds aren’t going to break the seal on him, so to speak, until he’s proven he can hit Triple-A pitching.

Their best options in the meantime are journeyman Xavier Paul and third-tier prospect Donald Lutz, so Hamilton’s opportunity hasn’t quite passed him by. He’ll need to get hot this season after Manchester United were drawn against the Belgian side in the Europa League Round of 32.Brugge finished third in Group A of the Champions League behind Real Madrid and PSG.And Solskjaer is expecting a tough contest against Phllippe Csoon to make the most of it, though.
