Reds top prospects update: Billy Hamilton, the fastest around

Seriously. He's fast.
Billy Hamilton has 52 stolen bases, while playing in 47 of Bakersfield's 50 games. By my not-all-that-scientific calculations, that puts him on pace to steal something like 144 bases in 131 games played, though he'll probably end up playing a few more games than that barring injury. Not that it needs any more perspective, but the Blaze play 140 games in the regular season. Hamilton stole 103 bases in 135 games last year for Dayton. That is all.

Here's this week's top prospects update. To see last week's update go here.

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.

Runs - Billy Hamilton (43)
