  2. Astros claim Alex Presley off waivers from Twins

    Alex Presley Twins

    Alex Presley entered spring training atop the Twins’ center field depth chart, but lost the starting job to Aaron Hicks and now he’s headed to Houston after the Astros claimed him off waivers. Presley is better suited to be a fourth outfielder anyway, so it’s curious that the Twins didn’t keep him around in the…

  3. Twins send down Aaron Hicks, Scott Diamond

    Aug 1, 2013, 6:09 PM EDT

    Aaron Hicks

    Let’s face it: most of the good news for the Twins this year has come from the minors, as Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano have emerged as two of the game’s top five prospects. What’s happened with the major league club has been mostly bad. That’s especially the case with Scott Diamond, the team’s best…

  4. Video: Aaron Hicks throws out Vernon Wells from the warning track

    Aaron Hicks

    During last night’s game against the Yankees, Twins rookie center fielder Aaron Hicks unleashed one of the more impressive throws you’re going to see. Vernon Wells hit a ball into the right-center field gap to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning and decided to try for a triple after it bounced around on…

    After watching Josh Willingham struggle through a left knee injury for three weeks the Twins finally placed him on the disabled list with a medial meniscus tear and bone bruise. To replace him on the roster Minnesota activated Aaron Hicks, who’s been on the DL for three weeks with a hamstring injury. Hicks has been…

  6. So, someone is going to have to be the AL Rookie of the Year, right?

    Jun 11, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    The AL fired off all its rounds with a 2012 rookie class that featured Mike Trout, Yu Darvish, Yoenis Cespedes, Jarrod Parker, Hisashi Iwakuma, Matt Moore, Tommy Milone and many others. This year, the strong rookie class is in the other league, with Shelby Miller, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Teheran leading the way and Yasiel…

    Aaron Hicks

    Aaron Hicks‘ season-long struggles now include a hamstring injury and Minnesota’s rookie center fielder has been placed on the disabled list. Oswaldo Arcia, who was demoted to Triple-A two weeks ago despite playing well in 30 games for the Twins, has been called back up to replace Hicks on the roster. Hicks has recovered from…

  8. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

    New York Mets Lucas Duda reacts after he hit to get winning run against New York Yankees in New York

    Mets 2, Yankees 1: Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch in the “Yankees likely victory over the Mets.” Shows ya what I know. The greatest closer in the history of baseball came into the ninth with a…

  10. Update: Anibal Sanchez loses no-hit bid against Twins

    May 24, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez has no-hit the Twins through seven innings tonight in Detroit. The only base runners he has allowed came on walks to Jamey Carroll and Chris Parmelee, and he has retired each of the last 17 batters he has faced. Parmelee, Eduardo Escobar, and Aaron Hicks are slated to face Sanchez when…

  11. The best and worst from MLB lineups in 2013

    Miguel Cabrera

    This is a quick look at the very best and worst each major league lineup spot has to offer this year. Posted along with each line is the player most responsible. We’ll start out with the good before moving on to the bad. 1. Reds: .292/.442/.517, 9 HR, 37 R, 20 RBI, 5 SB (Shin-Soo…

  12. Report: Mets considering demoting Ike Davis

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    UPDATE: Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told Mike Puma of the New York Post this afternoon that there’s no deadline for a decision to be made on Davis’ status. 10:10 AM: Ike Davis finally broke his 0-for-24 hitless streak yesterday with a single to center field in the sixth inning, but he’s still at risk…

  13. Aaron Hicks had himself a game

    May 14, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Minnesota Twins

    Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks has had a pretty lousy year at the plate so far, but he sure had a night to remember last night against the White Sox. He took Sox starter Hector Santiago deep twice last night, both solo shots, one in the fourth and one in the sixth. But the highlight…

  14. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 14, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    Braves Diamondbacks Baseball

    Braves 10, Diamondbacks 1: Justin Upton went 4 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI. Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a homer and 3 RBI. Martin Prado had a couple of hits and I suppose he was gritty. Gonna say that the first visit to Arizona for the Braves post-trade falls to…

    Boston Red Sox Jackie Bradley singles in front of New York Yankees Chris Stewart in MLB game in New York

    Jackie Bradley Jr. has started to lose playing time amid his struggles and Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox will “likely” send the 23-year-old back to the minors when David Ortiz returns from the disabled list Friday. Bradley is 5-for-38 (.097) with one extra-base hit in 12 games, although he…

    Bringing back something I used to do each year for fun, here’s a look at the American League Rookie of the Year possibilities, with odds posted for several of the favorites. I’ll follow suit with the National League tomorrow. Please note: Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin is ineligible for Rookie of the Year honors. He spent…

  17. Aaron Hicks named Twins’ starting center fielder

    Mar 25, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Aaron Hicks, Joe Vavra

    Three weeks ago when Aaron Hicks had a three-homer game against the Phillies it seemed all but certain that he’d be the Opening Day center fielder in Minnesota and now the Twins have made it official. Hicks, who ranked among Baseball America‘s top 100 prospects this year for the fourth time, will be making the…

  19. Twins prospect Aaron Hicks goes 4-for-5 with three homers

    Mar 7, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Aaron Hicks, Joe Vavra

    It’s been pretty obvious since the Twins traded both Denard Span and Ben Revere this offseason that they want 23-year-old former first-round pick Aaron Hicks to claim the Opening Day job in center field. Today he probably erased any doubt, going 4-for-5 with three homers, six RBIs, and a stolen base in a split squad…
