Profile: Run Billy Run! Oddly, Hamilton's stolen base total has increased by exactly one in each of the past two years, which makes his 2017 forecast quite simple (totally kidding). Amazingly, he has stolen nearly 60 bases in each of the past two seasons, despite failing to eclipse the 500 plate appearance plateau. Though his BABIP overcorrected and rebounded to a higher level than he is likely to sustain, just imagine if he could repeat that .321 OBP and stay healthy enough to reach 600 plate appearances for just the second time. If you use his 2016 as the pace, that's 76 steals. Sure, the pitiful RBI total is harmful, but there's literally no one else that could impact one category more than Hamilton does. Rather than focus on what he can't do, focus on what he can. Don't make the mistake of undervaluing him simply because his fantasy contributions are concentrated in primarily one category. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: As expected, Hamilton's BABIP rebounded and he wasn't the batting average drain he had been in 2015. Now with a neutral average, his stolen base total didn't have to come along with a "but...", and he should continue to float in that range, allowing you to reap the full benefits of all those steals.
