Billy Hamilton's option declined by Atlanta Braves

Billy Hamilton's 2020 $7.5M team option is being declined by the Atlanta Braves, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman.

Fantasy Impact

Once considered a top prospect with elite speed, Hamilton has never really been able to add much more to his game than top-notch speed and above-average defense. The Braves picked him up in 2019, but there was little doubt that they were going to decline his expensive option for next year. He should catch on somewhere else quickly either as a fourth outfielder for a contender or a potential starter for a rebuilding or retooling squad.

Billy Hamilton claimed by the Braves

Billy Hamilton was claimed by the Braves on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

With Austin Riley, Ender Inciarte, and Nick Markakis all on the injured list, the Braves needed outfield depth. Hamilton will mainly be used as a pinch runner and a defensive replacement. He will be a massive upgrade on defense over Adam Duvall or Matt Joyce. Hamilton hit .211 with 0 home runs and 18 steals in 93 games with the Royals before being optioned to the minors.
