2019-10-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What to make of Sam Hilliard? Do you think he’ll supplant tapia/Desmond or is he destined to the AAA shuttle next year? And do you buy substantial upside?
(Jose jimenez from Colorado)
I think a sentient doormat could supplant Desmond under normal management. I'd expect Hilliard to get a bunch of ABs. Substantial is subjective but he can definitely be quite useful in fantasy. Most of that will depend on Dahl's health and the Rockies' attachment to Desmond though. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-10-04 14:15:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Sam Hilliard?
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
I'm not shocked he went off for a month playing his home games at Coors. He's got real game power and he's more quick-twitch than you'd think. I still question if the swing plays long term against major league arms, at least as an everyday guy, but given that he is legit athletic enough to fake center field, there's a major league role for him. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-20 12:00:00 (link to chat)Sam Hilliard has impressive tools. Does he become at least an MLB regular? If not, what holds him back?
(Brian from CO)
Like what I have seen from Hillard so far, but it's a tough profile. That home park is basically built for his swing too. But that swing can get a little grooved, and I'd like to see him more extensively against Double-A arms before I throw a grade on him. Ultimately like most corner dudes, swing and miss would be his eventual undoing if it goes bad. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
