They're going to keep coming for a while. It helps to be asked. Here's a quickie on Hampson, who I thought a lot about while fine-tuning projections:


He was
used as a subsupersub last year,  never
really settling into the various roles he was asked to adopt. What was
exciting about him a few years ago, his speed and occasional pop, has
materialized. In 559 career plate appearances he has 13 homers and 23 steals,
which fantasy owners can certainly use. What hasn't developed, what has
pretty much devolved, is his hitting. His career Statcast expected batting
average is a woeful .225 and he has an equally woeful 26 percent hard hit
rate, well below the league average of 35 percent. Couple that with an
increasing tendency to strike out, a not super number of walks, a defensive
profile that is tolerable at best in the infield (but not bad in centerfield)
and it's easy to imagine that regular playing time is going to be ever more
so difficult to find. On the other hand, the Rockies lineup is a mess of
questions this season. Are veteran stars like Trevor Story and Charlie
Blackmon gonig to stick around? And will marginal young prospects like Josh
Fuentes, Sam HIlliard and Brendan Rodgers (the latter was expected to be a
star) going to hit enough to earn their own full-time at bats? Hampson's
fantasy allure is dulled by what looks like limited chances, but there is a real
chance he'll find 450-500 at bats this year, bringing the steals with just a
bit of pop, which makes him a real tweener.
