Billy Hamilton leading the way for Reds top prospects

Hamilton has a lot about which to smile.
Billy Hamilton of the Bakersfield Blaze is still tearing up the hitter-friendly California League. In the last seven games, he's doubled the amount of runs he scored in the first 10. He is good. He is really good. His teammate, Tony Cingrani has been impressive in his own right on the mound, sporting a 0.53 ERA. Didi Gregorius is hitting .391 at Pensacola, on 25 hits, and they're all singles. Donnie Joseph (Blue Wahoos) and J.J. Hoover (Bats) continue to be shut-down closers. To check last week's review, go here. Without further ado, here's this week's check-in on the Reds' top prospects:

Notes
#3 RHP Robert Stephenson has yet to throw a pitch in an actual game for the Reds organization. He was the Reds' 2011 first-round pick and signed right at the deadline, thus keeping him out of late 2011 action. He's expected to start at the rookie level, which begins play in late June.
