LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) New manager Bryan Price has the difficult task of replacing center fielder Shin-Soo Choo at the top of the Cincinnati Reds' lineup.
One intriguing option is the speedy youngster Billy Hamilton, a base-stealing star in the minors. But Price isn't so sure the 23 year old is up to a regular role yet.
"We're all excited about the development of Bill Hamilton, and one of the big decisions that we have to make between now and opening day is if he's ready to handle that load," Price said Monday at the winter meetings. "We're still going to give him a chance to come in and win a position."
