Drafted in the 3rd round (81st overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2016 (signed for $750,000)
A 26th-round pick out of Reno (Nev.) High in 2013, Hampson turned down the Nationals and joined Long Beach State's shortstop tradition, which has produced big leaguers such as Bobby Crosby, Troy Tulowitzki, Danny Espinoza and Matt Duffy in the last 15 years. Hampson should be next, as scouts consider him a high-floor player who plays hard and has enough tools to contribute to a big league roster. His best tool is his plus speed, as he's an aggressive baserunner who needs to refine his base stealing technique. He has the range and actions to stay in the middle of the diamond defensively. His average arm should allow him to stick at shortstop at least in a utility role, as his offensive ceiling may be limited. At 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, Hampson has slugged under .400 for his career and has the approach of a larger hitter, with too many flyball outs as his swing gets uphill at times. His safe profile could push him up as high as the third round.
