Billy Hamilton will begin a rehab assignment on Saturday
C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Pensacola on Saturday.
Hamilton has been on the shelf since August 18, when he suffered a sprained capsule in his right shoulder. With the minor league season ending soon, the speedy outfielder will likely be activated by the Reds next week.
Hamilton, 24, is batting .226/.272/.290 with 54 runs and leads the majors with 54 stolen bases in 61 attempts.
