Brandon Hicks was designated for assignment by the A’s last week and today he was traded to the Mets for cash. Or, you know, sold.
Ronny Cedeno is a free agent, so the Mets could give Hicks a chance to win the utility infielder job. Oakland claimed the 27-year-old off waivers from Atlanta last spring.
He’s been awful in limited big-league action so far, hitting .133 with 42 strikeouts in 90 at-bats, and is a career .241 hitter in the minors, but Hicks has also shown good power with 43 homers in 271 games at Triple-A.
