24-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Colorado Rockies
2019 Fantasy Outlook
While Hampson may not be a top-tier prospect, he is a decent hitter with borderline elite speed (30 ft/sec sprint speed) who gets to call Coors Field home. A third-round pick in 2016, Hampson didn't hit below .304 at any stop on the farm. He achieved those lofty marks thanks to a discerning eye and solid bat-to-ball skills (9.0% walk rate, 17.5% K-rate at Triple-A). He's a heavy groundball hitter -- his GB rate gradually increased from 44.9% to 53.2% during his time in the minors -- and while that limits his power output, he's been successful at putting the ball in play and booking it. He had these BABIPs in the minors: .366, .364, .323, .372. Hampson cracked 50 steals in 2017 and totaled 38 across three levels in 2018. The Rockies brought in Daniel Murphy but Murphy said he's more comfortable at first base than second at this stage. If Hampson is given an opportunity to play every day at the keystone, he could be a difference maker in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks

Drops to bottom half of lineup
SSColorado Rockies
April 20, 2019
Hampson will start at second base and bat seventh Saturday against the Phillies, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Hampson had a five-game run as the Rockies' No. 2 hitter from April 12 through 16, but he's dropped to the bottom half of the order since David Dahl (abdomen) was activated from the injured list. While the move down the lineup might hinder Hampson's run-scoring potential, the rookie at least still possesses a clear path to an everyday role and is finally beginning to hit his stride at the plate. He has recorded hits in all but two of his last 11 starts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
There is a direct correlation between Rockies prospects who get on base and those who steal bases. Anyone who is even a fringe-average runner is encouraged to look to run when they get on, so while Hampson stole 51 bases on 65 tries last year, his plus speed is more conducive to stealing 25-to-30 bases in the majors. That’s still excellent for a future second baseman -- only nine middle infielders stole 20-plus bases in the majors last season. The more pressing question is whether he will hit enough to be a regular. His numbers at High-A were incredibly impressive, but they need to be discounted due to his age (22) and home park (Lancaster). He hit .300/.366/.383 on the road, which is a much better indicator of his realistic upside. As a 23-year-old at Double-A, there will be immense pressure on him to continue to hit and keep the dream alive of a 30-steal second baseman who plays half his games in Coors Field.
Hampson was drafted by the Rockies in the third round of the 2016 draft. The 22-year-old played three years at Long Beach State and made the Team USA Collegiate National Team during his college years, as well. His strongest tool is definitely his plus speed, while his biggest area of weakness is his lack of power at the plate. In 68 games with Low-A Boise, Hampson batted .301/.404/.441 with an impressive 36 stolen bases (on 40 attempts). He walked at a 15 percent clip, struck out in roughly 18 percent of his plate appearances and was solid enough defensively to remain at shortstop for now, although he is not a lock to stick there. It was an encouraging professional debut season for the young shortstop, but his lack of power and middling defensive chops make it tough for him to profile as a big league regular down the road.
