Hicks was ranked by Baseball America yesterday as the #18 prospect in the Florida State League.
18. AARON HICKS OF, FORT MYERS MIRACLE (TWINS) Age: 21. B-T: B-R. Ht.: 6-2. Wt.: 185. Drafted: HSLong Beach, '08 (1).
Hicks still has "all-star tools," as one FSL observer put it, but the results continue to underwhelm. He had the worst season of his four-year pro career in 2011 and hit just .195/.309/.300 in the final two months.
Hicks has a quick bat and is a patient hitter, sometimes too patient. He ranked fourth in the league with 78 walks but also laid off many pitches he might have been able to drive and then swing at ones he couldn't. He mostly has doubles power right now, though he still has a lean frame and could develop more pop as he matures physically.
A natural righthander, Hicks continues to struggle mightily from the left side of the plate. He batted just .228/.357/.348 as a lefty, compared to .263/.349/.401 as a righty.
