Aaron Hicks added to roster at Triple-A

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."
