Sam Hilliard recalled from alternate training site

The Rockies recalled OF Sam Hilliard from their alternate training site.

Fantasy Impact

Hilliard has hit .238/.304/.488 in 29 games at the big league level this season. He had been optioned due to a crowded crew of Colorado position players, but he's back up for the final week of the season. Nolan Arenado (shoulder) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Sam Hilliard optioned to Rockies' alternate site

Sam Hilliard was optioned to the Rockies' alternate site on Thursday to make room for reliever Jesus Tinoco.

Fantasy Impact

Hilliard wasn't playing everyday and the Rockies needed some help on the back end as they fight for a playoff spot down the stretch. Hilliard showed some potential this season but was inconsistent and couldn't garner enough playing time in Colorado's crowded outfield. He put up a .238/.304/.488 batting line with six home runs and 10 RBI across 84 at-bats.

Sam Hilliard blasts fifth homer on Wednesday

Sam Hilliard hit his fifth homer of the season in the Rockies' 9-6 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Hilliard finished the contest 2-for-4 with the homer and three RBI. He hasn't blossomed the way many fantasy analysts were hoping for during spring training, hitting just .250/.325/.500 after today. His playing time concerns only got worse following the trade deadline acquisition of Kevin Pillar.

Sam Hilliard homers, steals a base in victory

Sam Hilliard went 2-for-5 with a homer, two runs scored, and a steal in the Rockies' 8-7 win over the D'Backs on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

That gives Hilliard three homers and two steals in his last five game. The Rockies have a home stand beginning this weekend, which makes Hilliard a good hitter to stream as he's heating up at the plate this week.

Sam Hilliard homers in back-to-back games

Sam Hilliard hit his third homer of the season in the Rockies' 11-3 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Make that two straight games with a homer for Hilliard, who ultimately hasn't done much in his follow-up to last year's surprise breakout. The 26-year-old is batting just .240 with three homers and two stolen bases thus far.
