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.
