According to the Reds, there is no structural damage in Hamilton’s shoulder, and he should be ready to go for the Reds come spring training.
While Hamilton swiped a career-high 57 bases this year, his bat has not reached the Major League standard. He is finishing the 2015 season batting just .226 with 4 home runs and 28 runs batted in. If he finds his swing, he will be more fun to watch.
