Hamilton back in lineup
Reds CF Billy Hamilton is back in the Reds’ lineup, after he missed Sunday’s game with a sore right elbow. Hamilton was injured making a throw from deep center field to third base in the sixth inning on Saturday.
Hamilton reported feeling 100 percent again.
“It’s a lot better today,” Hamilton said. “I took the off-day yesterday to see the doctor, and everything’s fine. Today, it’s more of my decision if I could play or not.”
Hamilton played catch before batting practice today to double check all was good — and it was.
“Knowing we had a day off on Monday, it gave him two-straight days off for him to get some of the soreness and swelling out,” Reds manager Bryan Price said.
