Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will be used as a corner outfielder when he returns from the disabled list.

Hicks began a rehab assignment Saturday and should be activated at some point this week. There's no spot for him in center field with Byron Buxton around, but Hicks was really playing well before getting hurt and should be in the lineup regularly. The odd man out could be Torii Hunter, who has been receiving a lot of days off of late and is down to .232/.290/.401 for the season. "People are excited to see the day when Buxton, Hicks and (Eddie) Rosario are out there together," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "We’ll have to figure it out day-to-day, what gives us the best chance to win a game."

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.

He'll remain there for a couple days before returning on September 3 when he's first eligible. Hick has missed the last couple weeks with a left hamstring strain.
Aug 28 - 5:39 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) has been running and hitting in the batting cage.

Hicks is nearly a week removed from being placed on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. The Twins remain hopeful that he'll be ready to go on September 3 when first eligible.
Aug 25 - 8:46 PM

Twins placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Hicks suffered the injury while running out a groundball Wednesday afternoon against the Yankees. No corresponding roster move has been announced, but there's talk of top center field prospect Byron Buxton returning to the major leagues. Buxton has been tearing it up at Triple-A Rochester and would take on immediate relevance in mixed fantasy leagues.

Aaron Hicks exited Wednesday's game against the Yankees with an apparent left hamstring injury.

Hicks grabbed at the hamstring while running out a groundball. It's certainly something that could lead to a disabled list stint, although the Twins should have more on his status after the game.
Aug 19 - 2:55 PM

Aaron Hicks went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and four runs scored in Wednesday's rout of the Rangers.

Hicks led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo home run off of Nick Martinez. He would later single and score in the third, fourth, and fifth innings. It's the second four-hit game of his career, with the other occurring in 2013. He had never scored four runs in a game. Hicks carries a .292/.346/.440 triple-slash line with seven home runs, 23 RBI, and 32 runs scored in 237 plate appearances.
Aug 12 - 11:20 PM

Aaron Hicks homered as the Twins' No. 6 hitter in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Hicks has batted second, seventh, seventh, first and now sixth in the Twins' last five games. It was odd to see him in the sixth spot tonight, considering that the Twins were facing a lefty and Hicks has killed lefties this season (1.007 OPS in 64 AB entering the night). With the homer off Mark Buehrle tonight, five of his six bombs have come versus southpaws.
Aug 6 - 9:59 PM

Aaron Hicks went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk from the two hole Thursday against the Mariners.

The Twins never would have asked for this much from Hicks, but they're getting it. He's had multiple hits in five straight games, raising his average from .259 to .299. If the Twins keeps batting him second, he might even offer some mixed-league value down the stretch.
Jul 31 - 1:14 AM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Pirates.

Rather than one big hit, Hicks drove in runs in three different innings in the loss. That included an RBI triple in the sixth inning. Since being activated from the disabled list on July 3, Hicks is hitting .323 (21-for-65) with three homers, 14 RBI and 12 runs scored. Still just 25, Hicks may finally be delivering on some of the promise he showed as a prospect.
Jul 29 - 12:10 AM

Twins activated OF Aaron Hicks from the 15-day disabled list.

He's taking the roster spot of Shane Robinson, who went on the family emergency list. Hicks might only be around until Robinson returns next week.
Jul 3 - 11:43 AM

Aaron Hicks (forearm) went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

Hicks is expected to return from the disabled list on Monday, the first day that he's eligible. With the injury to Byron Buxton, the door is open for him to retake the team's starting job in center field.
Jun 26 - 11:54 PM

Aaron Hicks (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

The Twins had considered bringing him back without a rehab assignment, but they'll let him get a couple games under his belt first. Hicks is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday, the first day he's eligible.
Jun 24 - 12:55 PM

Aaron Hicks (forearm) faced live pitching in the batting cages and also played catch prior to Tuesday's game.

Hicks is on track to return next Monday when he's first eligible, as the Twins don't expect him to need a rehab assignment. "That's the hope," Hicks said. "Hopefully, I don't have any setbacks or anything. As of right now, everything feels good, and everything is moving along."
Jun 23 - 10:20 PM

An MRI on Aaron Hicks' right forearm came back negative.

Hicks hadn't been progressing as quickly as hoped, thus the MRI was ordered. He's fine, though, and played catch and hit soft-toss on Sunday. The hope is that he'll be ready to return in about a week without needing a rehab assignment.
