Hamilton is under team control with the Cincinnati Reds for another two seasons before hitting free agency. Though he’s stolen 50-plus bases in each of his full seasons in the league, getting on base has proven to be the tough part for Hamilton. The speedster’s career batting average is under .250 and his career OBP is below .300.
The Giants have also been in the mix for Giancarlo Stanton, who would be the real prize of the offseason.
