Hamilton may have the found the perfect place to salvage his torpedoing fantasy stock. Only four teams attempted more stolen bases last year than the Royals, whose roster is desolate across the diamond. Ned Yost has often batted Alcides Escobar and his .293 OBP atop the lineup, so the former Reds center fielder may get a crack at the leadoff role. He's a terrible hitter who only helps in one category, but Hamilton's glove still justifies MLB playing time. Plus, drafters no longer have to pay a premium for someone who has swiped 208 bags over the last four seasons. It's at least a tempting thought in five-by-five roto leagues due to the discount.

Billy Hamilton's deal with Royals reportedly $5.25 million plus incentives

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that Billy Hamilton's deal with the Royals is for one year and $5.25 million.

Fantasy Impact

Olney adds that Hamilton can earn up to another $1 million in incentives. The outfielder was non-tendered by the Reds earlier this off-season but he's now in a great spot for his fantasy value. The Royals are historically one of the more aggressive teams on the base paths. Hamilton stole "just" 34 bases in 2018. If he stays healthy that number should rise next year.
