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

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.

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

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."

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.

Aaron Hicks (forearm) has been limited to light throwing.

Hicks is progressing slowly in his recovery from a right forearm strain but hopes to ramp up his throwing in the next few days. With Byron Buxton now up with the big club, Hicks' future is cloudy.

Aaron Hicks (forearm) has resumed taking soft toss.

Hicks was placed on the disabled list on Sunday, paving the way for Byron Buxton's recall. While he should be ready to return in late June, it's unclear how much of a role he will have now in the Twins outfield now that Buxton has arrived.
Jun 19 - 8:24 PM

Twins placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 13, with a right forearm strain.

The injury doesn't appear to be serious, but it's not clear at this point how long Hicks will be sidelined. With Byron Buxton up, his future in Minnesota is looking murky.
Jun 14 - 12:53 PM

Aaron Hicks was scratched from the Twins starting lineup on Saturday due to an elbow injury.

Hicks felt something while swinging in the batting cages prior to the game. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, be the Twins should provide an update on his status shortly.
Jun 13 - 1:54 PM

Aaron Hicks hit his first homer of the year and walked Wednesday as the Twins topped the Red Sox 6-4.

Hicks didn't even have an RBI in 48 at-bats since being called up. The Twins have tried to make him more aggressive at the plate -- which explains why he also had just one walk in 13 games -- and he did jump all over a bad changeup from Rick Porcello today, delivering a two-run blast. Plus, now he has that second walk, too!

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Red Sox.

Hicks was one of six Twins with at least two hits. He also had an excellent diving catch which robbed the Red Sox of a run in the second inning. Hicks is batting just .244/.261/.267 with one extra-base hit and an 11/1 K/BB ratio over 12 games since being called up from the minors earlier this month. That's not very exciting, but there's every reason for the Twins to keep running him out there. It's about time they find out what they have with him.
May 25 - 5:30 PM

Twins recalled OF Aaron Hicks from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll take the place of Shane Robinson, who was placed on the family emergency list. Hicks was batting .336/.415/.561 with two home runs and 14 RBI over his first 27 games this season in Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll stick around once Robinson is ready to return.
May 12 - 11:55 AM

NBC Sports' Aaron Gleeman reports that the Twins will promote Aaron Hicks from Triple-A Rochester prior to Tuesday's game.

It's not clear what the corresponding move will be, but designating Jordan Schafer for assignment would make sense. Hicks has certainly earned another shot at the center field job by batting .336 with two homers and two steals at Rochester. He sports an ugly .201/.293/.313 batting line at the major league level but could be worth a flier in deeper formats.
May 11 - 10:18 PM

Twins optioned OF Aaron Hicks to Triple-A Rochester.

Once again, Hicks had an opportunity to seize the team's starting job in center field with a strong spring, but hit just .206/.300/.324 with a 9/5 K/BB ratio in 34 spring at-bats. It appears as though Jordan Schafer will function as the team's starting center fielder to begin the season.
