Hamilton (knee) took batting practice Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Hamilton was able to hit, the Reds didn't indicate when he'd be ready to get back on the field. Until he's back in the lineup, Scott Schebler will likely continue to start in center field.

Hamilton (knee/hand) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, according to Jamie Ramsey of MLB.com.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton bruised his knee Monday and was already dealing with a minor hand injury, so manager Bryan Price decided to give him a day to rest and recover Tuesday. Scott Schebler will take Hamilton's place in center field Tuesday, and Tony Renda will replace him atop the order.

Hamilton was forced to leave Monday's game with a right knee contusion.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton also suffered a minor hand injury this Saturday. Neither of the injuries sounds major at this point, but given how banged up Hamilton is, he might be in for a day off or two. We'll consider him day-to-day until we hear more.

Hamilton suffered a minor left hand injury Saturday but is back in the lineup Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton has been on a tear since the All-Star break, both with his legs and in getting on-base at a better pace. It appears that he survived a minor scare here.

Hamilton went 1-for-4 with a walk and three stolen bases in Friday's 7-4 win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton struck out in three of his at-bats, but continued to terrorize the opposition on the occasions he was able to reach base. It's the third time this week that he's registered at least three steals, bringing his total up to a mind-blowing 29 since the All-Star break. Just as fantasy owners hoped for when they drafted him, Hamilton has shown over the last few weeks that he's certainly capable of carrying the steals category for a team all by his lonesome.

Hamilton went 2-for-3 with two walks, three stolen bases and three runs scored in Tuesday's 7-4 triumph over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton has now accrued nine stolen bases in the last three games, pushing his season total to a major-league leading 48 bags. The speedster has looked like a different playing since the All-Star break, submitting a .315/.388/.348 line to go with 18 runs and a 26-for-28 success rate on steal attempts.H

Hamilton stole two bases in a 1-for-4 game with a walk in Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Jonathan Villar also stole two bases Monday night, so the duo remains tied atop the major league stolen base leaderboard with 45 steals apiece. Hamilton continues to struggle as a hitter -- he has just a .255/.307/.347 batting line -- but he is now a ridiculous 45-for-51 (88.2 percent) in steal opportunities and there's no reason to believe he won't be efficient with his limited chances the rest of the way.

Hamilton went 3-for-4 with four stolen bases and three runs scored Sunday against the Pirates. He also drew a walk.

EDGE Analysis

The walks have been pretty rare for Hamilton, who tallied just his 23rd walk on the season. But because he's hitting for better average than last year, it's been tolerable for the Reds. He's also now up to 43 stolen bases on the season.
