by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jordan Schafer, Aaron Hicks, Shane Robinson and Eddie Rosario are considered the leading candidates for the job, but Molitor indicated Thursday that Rosario and Hicks would have to play regularly to stay in the majors.

"I haven't made up my mind on how that's going to play," Molitor said. "Aaron (Hicks) knows that. I think (Jordan) Schafer and (Shane) Robinson and Eddie all know. They're out there playing. They have reason and motivation to play as well as they can. We don't have to make a decision yet. We've got a little time."


Twins OF Aaron Hicks on mental errors: 'I've got to be better'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins OF Torii Hunter plans to mentor Aaron Hicks, Byron Buxton


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) Twins veteran right fielder Torii Hunter said one of his goals this season will be to mentor outfielder Aaron Hicks and top outfield prospect Byron Buxton, per MLB.com.

"I know Hicks can play, but with Buxton -- I haven't seen video or seen him play, but every word I hear is good about him," Hunter said. "I definitely think when we get to spring training we'll sit down and I'll work out with them and evaluate what they're doing right and what they're doing wrong."

Hicks said he will lean on Hunter this spring, as he competes with Jordan Schafer for the starting job in center field.

"I'll be all in his ear the whole time," Hicks said. "He might get annoyed I'll be in his ear so much. He's definitely a guy I'm going to go to.

"I believe that I have the ability to play center field here for a long time. I've just got to go out there and show people that I can be the center fielder that everybody wants me to be and also that I want myself to be."

Twins not yet ready to recall Aaron Hicks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks has performed fairly well since the start of July for Double-A New Britain. He hit .347 with a .427 on-base percentage, .554 slugging percentage and .982 OPS in 28 games last month.

Despite Hicks' recent success and the need for an outfielder since the trade of Sam Fuld, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he's not ready to bring Hicks back to the majors.

"What we needed was somebody to step up, and we believe Hicksy is going to step up," Gardenhire said, per The Pioneer Press. "We believe that's going to happen. It just hasn't happened yet. I know he's dominating Double-A now. He's doing great.

"My preference is get (him) to Triple-A and see what happens there and see if he can dominate that with some veteran pitchers, some guys that spin the ball a little bit better than they do in Double-A. Get him to Triple-A and let's see how he does there. Then you bring him up here. I think he still has to go there and prove that he can play there."
