  • Royals' Garrett Hampson: Two steals in Saturday's win

    Hampson went 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and a run scored in Saturday's 11-7 win over the Mets.

    Hampson got the start in center field with the Royals facing lefty Sean Manaea. This was Hampson's first multi-hit game of the season, and he took advantage of the extra time on the basepaths to pick up his second and third steals. The utility man is batting .211 with one RBI, four runs scored and a double through 20 plate appearances, and he's also struck out 10 times. Kyle Isbel (.244) isn't hitting much better, but it's enough to keep both players in their current platoon situation.

  • Royals' Garrett Hampson: Picks up first steal

    Hampson stole a base as a pinch runner in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Orioles.

    Hampson has played in three of the Royals' four games so far, but he hasn't started any of them. The 29-year-old offers speed and defensive versatility off the bench, a role that is more valuable on the field than in fantasy. He is hitless through four at-bats, so he'll need to show more with the bat to have any chance to carve out a larger role.

  • Royals' Garrett Hampson: Seen as top utility option

    Hampson is projected to be the Royals' main utility player this season, Anne Rogers of the Royals' official site reports.

    Hampson can cover a number of positions -- he's played everywhere but first base and catcher in his major-league career. Rogers notes it's likely Hampson won't have a single position, but he could still come close to everyday playing time by providing cover around the diamond. He hit a career-high .276 with his second-base OPS (.729) last season with the Marlins, which is impressive given he spent his first five seasons with the Rockies, so his move to the Royals alone shouldn't end up having a negative impact on his play.

  • Royals' Garrett Hampson: Inks one-year deal with KC

    Hampson signed a one-year contract with the Royals on Wednesday.

    The deal is worth $2 million guaranteed, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.com. Hampson was non-tendered by the Marlins earlier this month despite posting a career-best .276/.349/.380 batting line over 98 games in 2023 while appearing defensively at shortstop, second base, third base and all three outfield spots. The 29-year-old should be a useful super-utility option for Kansas City in 2024.

  • Garrett Hampson: Pushed into free agency

    Hampson became a free agent Friday after being non-tendered by Miami.

    Hampson played all around the diamond defensively in 2023 and posted a respectable .729 OPS across 252 plate appearances, but the Marlins did not want to pay his price tag as a second-year arbitration-eligible player. The 29-year-old should be able to find a super-utility job elsewhere.

  • Marlins' Garrett Hampson: On bench for Game 1

    Hampson is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's NL Wild Card Series Game 1 against the Phillies.

    Jon Berti will start at shortstop and bat eighth with Joey Wendle joining Hampson on the bench. Hampson drew steady action at shortstop over the final few weeks of the regular season, but it seems he's being viewed as a super-utility option off the bench in Miami's best-of-three series at Philadelphia.

  • Marlins' Garrett Hampson: Another start at shortstop

    Hampson will get another start at shortstop Thursday versus the Brewers.

  • Marlins' Garrett Hampson: Back on bench Monday

    Hampson is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Hampson will hit the bench after starting in each of the past three games. After going 4-for-6 with a solo home run in the first two of those contests, Hampson fell back to earth in a 5-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday, when he struck out in four of his five plate appearances. Joey Wendle will step back in at shortstop on Monday and still appears to be the Marlins' preferred option at the position.

  • Marlins' Garrett Hampson: Pops third homer

    Hampson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Phillies.

    The utility player got the Marlins on the board in the fifth inning when he slashed an Aaron Nola fastball over the left-field fence. Hampson's playing time continues to pick up, both due to his current form and due to the lack of consistent production from the likes of Joey Wendle, and he's started five of the last nine games for Miami -- three at shortstop and two at third base. Over that stretch, Hampson's batting .391 (9-for-23) with two of his three homers on the season.

  • Marlins' Garrett Hampson: Goes yard in rare start

    Hampson went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-5 extra-innings win over the Nationals.

    The utility player got the start at third base before shifting to right field as part of a late-game double switch, and Hampson would up providing the biggest blow during the Marlins' four-run rally in the 11th inning when he drove a Mason Thompson sinker over the wall in center field. Hampson has started two straight games at the hot corner as a defensive upgrade on Jake Burger, who has slotted in at DH while Jorge Soler (hip) is banged up, but he hadn't been in the starting nine since late July prior to that. Hampson has been productive when he's gotten the opportunity, however -- in each of his last four starts dating back to July 26, he's produced multiple hits.
