|Aaron Hicks unable to maintain momentum|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was hoping that Aaron Hicks could build off Monday's breakout game and get on a roll. But Hicks, who homered twice and made a spectacular catch that robbed a potential game-tying homer on Monday, went 0 for 3 Tuesday night against the White Sox.
Hicks is hitting .148 with three homers this season.
|Aaron Hicks not worth adding just yet|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/14/13) Long-term, I like Aaron Hicks. I like that even though he's slumping to begin his career, he still has managed to walk at a decent rate, compiling a .347 on-base percentage compared to just a .226 batting average over his last 21 games. I like that his power is already translating to the majors, as evidenced by his .519 slugging percentage over his last 16 games. I like that he seems to be getting more comfortable in his role, batting .300 over his last six games.
I like that he can run. I like that he can field. I like that the Twins don't have anyone else to man his position.
But I'm not rushing to pick him up after his multi-homer game Monday. Maybe I would if it wasn't also his first multi-hit game, but since it was, I need to see more. I have my eye on him, but right now, I'd rather devote my bench space to players in higher demand.

(5/13/13) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks had a powerful return to the lineup Monday against the White Sox after dealing with an elbow injury over the weekend. He went 2 for 3 with two home runs. Hicks also walked once and scored three times in a 10-3 win.
The 23-year-old led off the fourth inning with a solo homer off starter Hector Santiago before victimizing the left-hander for another solo shot in the sixth.
Hicks has gone 7 for 27 (.259) with three home runs and seven RBI in his last eight games.

(5/13/13) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks returned to the starting lineup Monday against the White Sox after missing two games with a sore elbow. Hicks is batting .194 (6 for 31) with one triple, one home run, two doubles and five RBI in nine May games.
|Aaron Hicks remains sidelined with sore elbow|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is out Sunday for the second straight game with a sore elbow, Fox Sports North reports.
Hicks is on a three-game hitting streak, but his line remains dreadful at .137/.239/.216. He is expected to return soon and get a chance to extend the streak.
|With a declining batting average and yet-to-develop power, Aaron Hicks' prospect status took a serious hit at this time last year, but it's come roaring back after a breakout year in which he nearly doubled his career highs in home runs and stolen bases. The emergence coincided with his promotion to Double-A -- widely considered the most significant step up the minor-league ladder -- which suggests it was more a matter of him growing into his tools than beating up on inferior competition. It certainly convinced the Twins, who traded both Denard Span and Ben Revere this offseason, presumably to make way for Hicks. Hicks will have to beat out 27-year-old Darin Mastroianni for the job this spring, but even if he doesn't, his ascension is probably just a matter of him spending a few weeks at Triple-A. Because Hicks' name has been synonymous with disappointment in recent years, some Fantasy owners may be slow to come around to him, but even during those years when he struggled, his walk rate was among the best in the minors. Even if he disappoints in batting average and home runs as a rookie, he'll get on base enough to factor in steals. Hicks' potential isn't quite that of fellow Twins prospects Byron Buxton and Oswaldo Arcia, but because his time is now, he's worth a late-round look even in mixed leagues. (Updated 1/4/13)|
