CF Billy Hamilton is being counted on to perform in a key role -- leadoff, center field -- on a contending team. That is not an easy role for player who hit .256 last year in Triple-A. But Hamilton had a terrific spring.
RHP Robert Stephenson, 21, will probably start in Double-A, but he could move fast. He went a combined 7-7 with a 2.99 ERA last year, starting in low Class A and ending up in the Double-A. His fastball touches 100 mph.
