Description: Minnesota activated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the disabled list but immediately optioned him down to Double-A New Britain.
Insight: Hicks (.198, 1 HR, 9 RBI) strained his shoulder earlier this month. Even if he does get another chance with the Twins this year, Hicks won't be a fantasy option.

Insight: We imagine Hicks, who is hitting just .190 this season, will be sent down as soon as Sam Fuld returns from his concussion. Hicks still has a long career ahead of him but the Twins can't afford to keep trotting him out there when he's not hitting.
 
5/29/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is questionable for Thursday afternoon's game against Texas due to a stiff lower back.
Insight: Hicks was a late scratch on Wednesday. He's still not producing much offensively, batting .195 with a homer, eight RBI and 13 runs scored, so this shouldn't change fantasy lineups. The Twins used rookie Danny Santana in center on Wednesday, who is off to a nice start to his major league career (.324, .807 OPS in 34 at-bats).
 
5/9/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks will return from the 7-day concussion DL Friday night.
Insight: Hicks is hitting eighth Friday against Detroit. The 24-year-old has hit .178 with one homer and a .575 OPS in 25 games this season after batting .192 in 81 games as a rookie.
 
5/2/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: The Twins have placed center fielder Aaron Hicks on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion.
Insight: Hicks suffered the injury in last night's loss to the Dodgers. Expect Sam Fuld (.259, 1 HR, 7 RBI) to take over in center field while he's out.
 
5/2/2014 10:44:00 AM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is expected to miss Friday's game against Baltimore due to concussion-like symptoms.
Insight: He was forced to leave Thursday's game with the Dodgers. Batting just .178 with a .575 OPS and two stolen bases, Hicks isn't on any fantasy radar screens.
 
7/8/2013 10:39:00 PM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks smacked four hits Monday in a loss to the Rays.
Insight: He finished a home run away from the cycle. Hicks is only hitting .205 this season so don't put too much stock into one big game.
 
6/20/2013 6:42:00 PM
Description: Minnesota center fielder Aaron Hicks (hamstring) could start a minor league rehab assignment as soon as Monday, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com.
Insight: Hicks hit .179 with six homers, 19 RBI, 24 runs and four steals prior to his injury. He has been on the DL since June 10.
 
6/10/2013 7:47:00 PM
Description: Minnesota center fielder Aaron Hicks has been moved to the DL.
Insight: Hicks is out with a strained hamstring. Oswaldo Arcia (.255, 4 HR, 11 RBI in 30 games) has been called up from Triple-A to take over for Hicks in center field.
 
6/10/2013 11:30:00 AM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia with a strained left hamstring.
Insight: After a historically bad start (3-for-53), Hicks has been improving, batting .202 in May and .280 in June. It appears that the Twins' patience is starting to pay off.
 
5/29/2013 4:41:00 PM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is batting .202 with five homers in May.
Insight: That doesn't seem all the good, but considering he hit .113 with zero homers in April, we'll take it. The rookie is batting .161 with 17 RBI, 21 runs and four steals in 155 at-bats this season. We'll see if the Twins' patience with the 23-year-old pays off or if they eventually have to send him down.
 
5/22/2013 9:20:00 PM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks went 3-for-4 with a solo homer Wednesday against the Braves.
Insight: Hicks has been better in May than he was in April, but not by much. He hit .113 with 26 K in April, and is batting .206 with four homers in May.
 
5/13/2013 11:28:00 AM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is questionable for Monday's game against the Chicago White Sox with a sore right wrist.
Insight: The Twins have been very patient with Hicks even though the rookie is batting .137 with 325strikeouts in 102 at-bats. He is batting .231 over the past seven days.
 
Cold5/7/2013 5:55:00 PM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is sitting out Tuesday, according to LaVelle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune.
Insight: Neal called it a "manager's decision." The Twins have been very patient with Hicks even though the rookie is batting .124 with 32 strikeouts in 89 at-bats.
 
Cold5/4/2013 7:45:00 PM
Description: Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Saturday against the Indians.
Insight: It was the first homer of his major league career. The rookie won the center field job after a strong spring, but he started off 2-for-48 (.042) with 20 strikeouts and was bumped out of the leadoff spot. He's still looking for his first multi-hit game.
 
Cold4/12/2013 7:36:00 PM
Description: Twins manager Ron Gardenhire admits that the team has discussed moving rookie outfielder Aaron Hicks down in the order, but he will remain in the leadoff spot for now. SOURCE: LaVelle E. Neal III, Star Tribune
Insight: Hicks hit .286, 21 doubles, 11 triples and 13 homers, walked 79 times and swiped 32 bags at Double-A last season and he batted .370 with four home runs in 73 at-bats this spring to win the center field job, but he has started off 2-for-35 (.057) with 16 strikeouts. It doesn't get much colder than that.
 
Cold4/9/2013 7:20:00 PM
Description: Twins rookie center fielder Aaron Hicks will get a night off Tuesday.
Insight: Hicks hit .286, 21 doubles, 11 triples and 13 homers, walked 79 times and swiped 32 bags at Double-A last season and he batted .370 with four home runs in 73 at-bats this spring to win the center field job, but he has started off 2-for-30 (.067) with 13 strikeouts.
 
Cold4/7/2013 9:27:00 AM
Description: Twins rookie center fielder Aaron Hicks has started off 1-for-22 with 10 strikeouts.
Insight: He has been leading off but he likely will be moved down if he continues to struggle. Hicks hit .286, 21 doubles, 11 triples and 13 homers, walked 79 times and swiped 32 bags at Double-A last season and he batted .370 with four home runs in 73 at-bats this spring to win the center field job.
 
Hot3/24/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: Aaron Hicks will open the season as the Twins' starting center fielder.
Insight: Darin Mastroianni was expected to win the job but instead Hicks impressed by hitting .350 in spring training. The 23-year-old hit .286 with 13 HR and 61 RBI last season at Double-A New Britain. He also swiped 32 stolen bases.
