Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 60 | Power: 35 | Run: 65 | Arm: 50 | Field: 60 | Overall: 55

Hampson was drafted late by the Nationals as a Reno high schooler in 2013, but opted to honor his commitment to Long Beach State. The move proved to be a good one as the shortstop was taken three years later in the third round by the Rockies. Hampson made a beeline to join other Dirtbags shortstops to reach the big leagues, reaching Colorado in his second full season of pro ball.

Hampson's best tool is his speed, and he is well-aware his wheels serve as his carrying card. He led all Rockies Minor Leaguers in stolen bases in 2018 and swiped 123 bags on his way to the big leagues while being caught just 23 times. He makes a ton of contact and willingly puts the ball on the ground to use his speed to his advantage. He's not a big power guy, but he does impact the baseball well and will run into a few homers over the course of the season.

The Rockies preach positional flexibility often with their infielders and Hampson has embraced that, evolving from a primary shortstop to a player who saw most of his time at second base in 2018. It's a spot he could play every day at the big league level, while serving as a top-of-the-order sparkplug, though he's seen time in the outfield as well to increase his versatility.
