Hicks Up Again With Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins are giving center fielder Aaron Hicks another shot at the major leagues.
The Twins' 2008 first-round pick is headed for Detroit for Tuesday's series opener against the Tigers. The 25-year-old outfielder was summoned from Class AAA Rochester Monday night.
Hicks is a .201 hitter in 150 major league games.
In a March 10 game against Toronto in Dunedin, Florida, Hicks lost track of the number of outs while running the bases and manager Paul Molitor removed him in the fourth inning.
In Rochester, Hicks has raised his average to .336 this season, with two homers, 14 RBI and 21 runs scored.
Tonight's game coverage begins at 5:30 with Kyle Gibson slated to start on the mound for the Twins. First pitch 6:05 on News/Talk 1340 KROC AM.
