Three Keys to Understanding Aaron Hicks

Yankees Acquire Aaron Hicks, A Potential Bargain

While it’s not going down as any kind of blockbuster, the Twins and Yankees struck a deal today, with Minnesota sending outfielder Aaron Hicks to the Yankees for catcher JR Murphy.

Twins Wednesday: Hicks activated, optioned to Double-A

Aaron Hicks' roller coaster season continues. The Minnesota Twins activated Hicks (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Double-A New Britain, where he had been on his rehab assignment.

Big blast helps Hicks' confidence

One good swing of the bat doesn't necessarily snap a player out of a slump, but a big hit Thursday could help boost Aaron Hicks' confidence early in the season. Minnesota's center fielder entered Thursday's series finale against Tampa Bay batting just .175 with four RBI through 20 games.

Twins' Hicks looks to go on offensive in making club

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- For most players, their rookie season is typically a memorable one. Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks would prefer to put his rookie year in the back of his memory bank. That's because Hicks -- who had a stellar spring training in 2013 -- struggled mightily in his first season in the major leagues. After tearing up the Grapefruit League with a spring performance...
