Sam Hilliard (OF, COL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

ANALYSIS: Sam Hilliard has long been thought of as a threat to post big numbers in both the power and speed categories for Colorado. It's simply been a question of when he would deliver on that potential. The Rockies have been particularly maddening in their handling of young players, seeming to consistently opt not to give their prospects the opportunity to play. True to form, Chris Owings has gotten the nod over Hilliard for much of the first week of the season. With Owings on the injured list, the Rockies basically have no choice but to let Hilliard step up.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Clubs first homer

Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Dodgers. The 27-year-old entered the game in the sixth inning and still got in a solid complement of at-bats while taking David Price deep as part of a six-run seventh for the Rockies. Hilliard hasn't started either of the Rockies' first two games, a somewhat worrying sign for his playing time this season, and he may need the Colorado outfield to get a little less crowded to move into a larger role.

Patiently Waiting for the Real Sam Hilliard

Saying Sam Hilliard burst onto the scene in 2019 is both cliché and accurate. To say he fell off a cliff in 2020 would be both cliché and only figuratively accurate. A hot commodity after 2019, Hilliard was on a lot of fantasy waiver wires by the time 2020 ended, but with draft season underway, it appears fantasy players are talking themselves into Hilliard again.

Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers against Cleveland

Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Friday's spring win over Cleveland. Hilliard took part in a three-run second inning Friday by hitting his first home run of the spring with no outs in the frame. He was unable to generate any results in his other two at-bats but has now gone 9-for-35 with nine runs, seven RBI, four stolen bases, six walks and 12 strikeouts over 15 Cactus League games. With Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) out for at least a month, Hilliard could potentially carve out extra playing time in the outfield to begin the regular season if Garrett Hampson sees time at second base.
