Billy Hamilton Thumbs Out, Homer Bailey, John Lamb And Anthony DeSclafani Rehab Starts

Billy Hamilton jammed his left thumb against St. Louis and aggravated it trying to make a diving catch against Colorado on Wednesday.

"He jammed it when he made that catch in St. Louis," said Bryan Price of the catch on which he robbed Matt Carpenter of a home run.  "He aggravated the thumb diving for a ball against the Rockies.  He won't start for a couple days."

Hamilton wore a half glove protector on his thumb before the game.  He was on his way to have it examined.

"I just don't want a big cast on it," Hamilton said.

Scott Schebler started on Thursday against Jake Arrieta.

Homer Bailey is expected to make a start for Louisville against Indianapolis.

"We just want to see health," Price said.  "The numbers don't matter that much. A lot of times the starts in the minor league don't turn out like you'd expect."

John Lamb is scheduled to start on Friday for Louisville against Toledo..Lamb made a rehab start on Saturday for Louisville.  He allowed three earned runs on six hits and a walk in three innings.

Anthony DeSclafani is scheduled to start his rehab assignment in Pensacola against Jackson on Saturday.
