Yankees acquired OF Aaron Hicks from the Twins for C John Ryan Murphy.
The Twins have a logjam of talented, young outfielders, so they used their depth to address an area of need behind the plate. Hicks just turned 26, so there's still plenty of upside here, as well. The switch-hitter batted .256/.333/.398 over 97 games this season. With his plus-speed and good defense, he should be a useful piece for the Yankees. He currently projects to replace Chris Young as a fourth outfielder, but the move could make Brian Cashman more likely to move Brett Gardner in another trade. Nov 11 - 2:03 PM

Aaron Hicks will bat seventh Tuesday against the Indians.

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-5 with an RBI triple and a run scored against the Indians on Tuesday.

Aaron Hicks went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

He was just activated from the 15-day disabled list on Friday, having missed two weeks due to a left hamstring strain.

Sep 6 - 5:22 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will rejoin the Twins on Friday.

Hicks is first eligible to return from the disabled list Thursday, but he'll be back a day later when the Twins open a series against the Astros. Hicks was hitting .268/.318/.411 before going down with a left hamstring strain in mid-August.
Sep 2 - 9:00 PM

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."
Aug 30 - 9:47 AM

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.
Aug 19 - 4:07 PM

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.
