Billy Hamilton at $28 in LABR

Billy Hamilton is this seasons high riser in drafts. The $28 bid in NL LABR confirmed this.

Of little note, Billy Hamilton will be 24 at the end of the season and scouting reports already note that he may not be a strong enough hitter to succeed as an everyday player. Not to mention his batting eye is considerably worse than 1.00

At a handful of dollars in an NL-only league, Hamilton's upside is enormous relative to his cost. At $28 in an NL-only league, he's upside is seriously mitigated by the downsides and compels a search for comparisons. All speed, weak hit? Sounds like Dee Gordon.

Of note, the Oakland A's have another 80 runner in camp, Billy Burns. He is a switch hitter who will be 25 at the end of the season and has more walks in his minor league career than strikeouts and a single home run across nearly 1,100 minor league at bats.

Zero power, switch hitter, 80 speed sounds like Hamilton. This is someone to keep an eye on for one category help and the cost is zero.
