Gets his first SB of 2020 ... for the Mets!  (while going 0-for-4 ... classic)

Billy Hamilton (OF) SF - Jun. 28

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=741555

Hamilton was released and subsequently re-signed to a minor-league deal by the Giants on Sunday, and he will be present for the start of spring training 2.0, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

One thing I've been doing with the down time is running a one year then a second year simulation with OOTP. Obviously, when I do this, I'm buying into OOTP's (hidden) assumptions about players and how they will develop over the year and who does well. 

The game seems optimistic about Hamelton's next two years with the Giants as he ends up among the leaders in SBs all the time.  It has been helpful to see who is up for ROY in the NL after each season. It's uncovered some next level prospects that I might not have looked at before. I also glance to who it has as starters for each team going into year three. This rolls in some of the "who will be a free agent by then" emphasis.

Oh and I'm really hating not having a baseball season in case you couldn't tell.

7 K's and 0 BB's in 20 ABs so far.  Not a great way to avoid AAA.

Fangraphs says he still was a positive factor patrolling center field; Baseball-Reference says not (-0.3 dWAR). Had the lowest OPS in the majors (minimum 350 PA).
