Some MLB players are well traveled.
Some see action with many teams throughout their careers.
Others may just bounce around organizations, struggling to find their footing with one and being signed as nothing more than a depth piece.
But for veteran outfielder Billy Hamilton, the list just keeps growing and growing.
The veteran speedster signed a minor league deal with the Seattle Mariners on Monday morning, he has bounced around the league, spending time with six different organizations in his career.
Now, as a member of the Mariners’ organization, Hamilton looks to make his seventh big-league team in the past four seasons.

It really is crazy how some players just bounce around different organizations throughout their careers.
Hamilton, once a top prospect, can certainly attest to that, having spent time with the Cincinnati Reds, Kansas City Royals, Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, Chicago Cubs, and Chicago White Sox.
He is a well-traveled MLB veteran who has been in the league since 2013.
Again, some players are very well-traveled.
But it’s crazy to think that Hamilton has a chance to make his seventh big-league team in just four short years.
Not many players can say that they’ve bounced around that frequently, and that is a lot of teams for such a short period of time.
It’s rare that a player bounces around that often in such a short amount of time.
Hamilton is just one of those players.
He has struggled at the plate for much of his career, but he is a speed demon, doing damage on the basepaths since he came up to the big leagues.
After all, it took two full years and several attempts for Yadier Molina, one of the best catchers of this generation, to actually throw out Hamilton.
