Sam Fuld in, Aaron Hicks out of Wednesday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Newly acquired center fielder Sam Fuld will make his Twins debut Wednesday night at Tampa Bay. He is set to replace starter Aaron Hicks in the lineup.

Aaron Hicks likely to hit at the bottom of the order


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks will likely hit at the bottom of the order, according to the Star Tribune

Hicks hit leadoff with the club last season, but won't be in such a prominent role this time around. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he doesn't want Hicks to think at the plate. "I don’t want Hicks thinking. I just want him down there swinging, not worried about where he’s at," Gardenhire said.

"He’s already come up and asked me, ‘Am I going to hit eighth this year?’" Gardenhire said. "I told him, basically, ‘you just pray that you’re in the top nine, and you’ll be fine.’" Hicks hit just .192 in 281 at-bats last year.


Aaron Hicks 'probably' going to start in center field for Twins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire hinted Sunday outfielder Aaron Hicks will likely be the team's starting center fielder, per the Pioneer Press. Hicks is competing with Alex Presley for the starting job.

"Hicksie is probably going to be in center. He's running the ball down pretty good," Gardenhire said.


Jekyll-Hyde game for Aaron Hicks includes bad play afield


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Aaron Hicks appears to be clearly winning the Twins center field battle against Alex Presley, but one wonders how much Ron Gardenhire likes him when he was criticized despite a four-hit game that included three singles and a double.

Gardenhire blasted Hicks for missing the cutoff man, leading to a run in a one-run loss. "The guy who hit the ball went to second and scored on another base hit," Gardenhire told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "So there you have it - the fifth run and we end up losing the game by one run. Throw the ball down. We had no chance to throw the guy out at home. I don't care how strong his arm is. We hit the cutoff man, keep the man at first, who knows what happens?"

Hicks raised his spring batting average to .375 with his big night at the plate.


Twins assistant GM blasts center field combatants


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony lambasted both Aaron Hicks and Alex Presley as ineffective as they fight for the starting job in center field.

Hicks hasn't been anything special this spring," he said via the St. Paul Pioneer-Press. "Neither has Presley. There's your center field battle."

Antony might have been a bit harsh regarding Hicks, who has come in strong in recent days. He has lifted his batting average to a respectable .286.


Aaron Hicks homers in return to action Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Pirates.

Hicks had been out since March 4 due to an elbow injury and was not in the team's starting lineup, but he smacked a pinch-hit home run in the fifth inning and played center field for the duration of the game. He's 3 for 12 with one home run in four appearances this spring.


Aaron Hicks still sidelined with elbow issue


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Optimism that Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks would return to the lineup Wednesday after recovering from an elbow injury was unwarranted. He was nowhere to be seen when the lineup for the game against Pittsburgh was released. He does appear close, however, after taking batting practice on Tuesday.

Hicks is competing against Alex Presley for the starting center field job, though Darin Mastroianni and Jermaine Mitchell are longshots. None have been impressive in spring training.


Twins manager mulling leadoff options


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Oswaldo Arcia, Aaron Hicks sidelined Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Aaron Hicks seeking rebound from terrible year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Alex Presley appears set to start ahead of Aaron Hicks in center field for the Twins this season, but the latter is more concerned with putting a miserable 2013 behind him and landing a spot on the roster.

"I'm just trying to put the past in the past, really, and start looking forward to this upcoming year and do what I need to do to prepare for this season," he told FOXSports.com. "I'm kind of glad and not kind of glad that I went through that last year. It was a learning experience. ... Going into this season, I'm more prepared."

The 24-year-old Hicks earned a starting spot in 2013 out of spring training despite never having played about Double-A. He went 1-for-22 in his first five games and finished April with a .113 batting average before an eventual demotion to Triple-A Rochester. He batted only .192 in 81 games there.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

"This is a good breather for him," Gardenhire explained. "Hopefully he'll come back with a little attitude."

Hicks struggled mightily in his first taste of the big leagues this season for the Twins. The 23-year-old hit just .192 over 281 at-bats with eight homers, 27 RBI and nine stolen bases.

Hicks may not return to action until a possible September call up.

Aaron Hicks strains quad at Triple-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

The 23-year-old has struggled down in the minors of late. He's gone just 6 for 37 (.162) over his last 10 games and has only hit .192 at the major-league level this season. 


Aaron Hicks sent down to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2013) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks has been sent down to Triple-A Thursday.

Hicks surprised many by making the major-league club straight out of spring training, but didn't hit well once the regular season started. Hicks is hitting .195/.262/.343 in 277 at-bats. 


Still not sure what to make of Aaron Hicks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2013) In case you haven't noticed, Twins rookie outfielder Aaron Hicks has been vastly improved offensively since coming off the disabled list in early July. After hitting a disappointing .179 in his first 55 games, Hicks is batting .271 (13 for 48) with a .521 slugging percentage and .848 OPS in 13 games since returning from a hamstring injury.

Hicks has averaged 20 Fantasy points (standard formats) the last two scoring periods and has had at least 18 Fantasy points in four of the last six scoring periods he's been active. 

Despite his recent success, I'm still not sure what to make of Hicks. His strikeout rate is still very high and his recent run was boosted by a four-hit outing July 8. Hicks heads into the All-Star break mired in a 3-for-23 slump. 

While Hicks might have a bright future, seasonal league owners don't need to spring to waivers to add the rookie outfielder. It still appears he's showing signs of being a streaky hitter, so if you remain heistant to take a flier on Hicks, then don't. 


Aaron Hicks goes deep off CC Sabathia


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2013) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks finished the first half of his first season in the majors with a flourish Sunday in a win over New York. Hicks had a three-run homer off starter CC Sabathia in the third inning. 

Hicks went 1 for 4 with a walk. He has 8 home runs, 24 RBI and is batting .197. But he has nine hits in his last nine games with two homers and five RBI. 


Aaron Hicks with four-hit night


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks doubled twice and added a triple and a single as he finished a home run shy of the cycle Monday during a loss at Tampa Bay. Hicks finished 4 for 4 in the game with two runs scored.

The center fielder was also picked off first base. He's batting .205 on the year after the four hits Monday. Hicks has gone 6 for 11 over his last three games and has eight hits over his last five contests.
