Hamilton went 2-for-5 with a run scored and his 32nd stolen base of the season in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

He's now got five steals in the last three games and 10 in his last nine games as Hamilton finally begins to provide some premium value in the category he was drafted for. Not coincidentally he's also reached base at least once in 10 straight games, hitting .349 (15-for-43) with three walks over that stretch. As long as Hamilton can keep finding his way to first base, he should continue swiping bags on a regular basis.

Hamilton will be batting leadoff as the Reds take on the Diamondbacks on Friday, Reds Assistant Director of Media Relations Jamie Ramsey reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will only be the 11th time that Hamilton has hit at the top of the order for the Reds this season. Over his past six games, Hamilton has collected nine hits and five stolen bases. Hamilton will face off against Archie Bradley, who he has never faced in his career. Reds manager Bryan Price seems to be trusting Hamilton's bat more and more in the second half as Hamilton has seemed to have found a home near the top of the batting lineup. Zack Cozart, who has been hitting leadoff for the Reds, will hit second behind Hamilton.

Hamilton went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and the game's only run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

In the ninth inning of a 0-0 tie, Hamilton stole third and then scampered home on a Jonathan Lucroy passed ball to give the Reds the victory. The steal was his 24th on the year but Hamilton's still hitting just .174 (8-for-46) in July, dragging his slash line on the season down to .238/.288/.347.

Hamilton tweaked his knee while making a leaping catch at the wall in Friday's game, but expects to play through any soreness, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Zach Buchanan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton remained in the game but sported an ice pack on his knee in the locker room afterward. While he is confident he will play through the injury, he has missed short spurts of time with other ailments already this season. He shouldn't be considered officially injured just yet, as he hasn't missed any time with the ailment, but he's also not 100 percent healthy.

Hamilton (face) has been cleared to play and is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. He'll bat seventh in the order and start in center field.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton's status was uncertain throughout the day Thursday as he had to go through MLB's concussion protocol and gain clearance to play. He suffered a face contusion in Wednesday's game, but after going through the protocol, he has been cleared to play.

Hamilton has a contusion on the left side of his face and is currently going through the concussion protocol, John Fay of wcpo.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton's status should be more clear once the results of the concussion protocol are released, but considering he suffered a concussion just a few weeks ago, it is likely that the Reds are cautious with him. More information regarding his timetable for return should be released shortly.

Hamilton left Wednesday's game after a wild play where Adam Duvall crossed in front of him and deflected the ball off his glove into Hamilton's head.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton returned from a concussion 10 days ago, so the Reds are no doubt worried that he may have suffered another one Wednesday. He was able to walk off under his own power after being tended to by the training staff. Tyler Holt replaced Hamilton in center field. We will update his status when the team makes an official statement regarding the nature of the injury.
