Aaron Hicks left last night’s game after slamming his head into the outfield wall and now the Twins have placed the center fielder on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

Hicks initially remained in the game, but was later removed for a pinch-hitter and afterward teammates described him as clearly displaying some post-concussion symptoms.

Sam Fuld, who was claimed off waivers from the A’s last week, will take over as Minnesota’s primary center fielder and now the Twins’ entire starting outfield is on the disabled list as Hicks joins left fielder Josh Willingham and right fielder Oswaldo Arcia.

Within the past few years Twins players to be sidelined by concussions include Hicks, Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Denard Span, Ryan Doumit, and Wilkin Ramirez.

    Good luck to Mr. Hicks and boo to the Twins front office for letting Alex Pressly go.

    Gardy could be headed to the 7 day too after bashing himself in the face with the bullpen phone so often recently.

      In extended spring training because of his sprained wrist. After that he goes to Single A instead of double A which was planned before he hurt his wrist.
