New York Yankees: Ramifications of the Aaron Hicks trade

Last Wednesday, the New York Yankees made their first major move of the offseason, acquiring outfielder Aaron Hicks for backup catcher John Ryan Murphy. This marks the third straight season that the Yankees have traded a backup catcher in the offseason, as Chris Stewart and Francisco Cervelli were both traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2013 and 2014, respectively. So what role...

Three Keys to Understanding Aaron Hicks

You’re forgiven if you don’t much care about Wednesday’s swap of Aaron Hicks for JR Murphy. Maybe you’re not a fan of the Twins or the Yankees. Maybe you’re not a fan of baseball at all, and you somehow wound up here by accident. Or maybe you are a fan of the Twins or the Yankees, but you recognize this as a trade featuring two players with less than 2 combined WAR over...

Yankees Acquire Aaron Hicks, A Potential Bargain

While it’s not going down as any kind of blockbuster, the Twins and Yankees struck a deal today, with Minnesota sending outfielder Aaron Hicks to the Yankees for catcher JR Murphy. Hicks, a former highly though of prospect, finally showed some signs of life in 2015, putting up +1.5 WAR in 97 games after getting called back up from Triple-A. The improvement primarily came from...

Twins, Yankees swap Aaron Hicks, John Ryan Murphy

So, about that backlog in Minnesota. Looks like it’s been taken care of, for now at least. The Twins have traded center fielder Aaron Hicks to the Yankees for catcher John Ryan Murphy. The 26 year old Hicks had a breakout year in 2015 after struggling in both 2013 and 2014. In 97 games, Hicks hit 11 homers and stole 13 bases to go along with a .256/.323/.398 line. However, with...

WATCH: Aaron Hicks Makes Tremendous Willie Mays-Like Catch

This is the first and only time you will ever see light-hitting Minnesota Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks compared to the great Willie Mays. What Hicks did Monday night in Minnesota’s 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles was nothing short of extraordinary. And it brought back memories of one of the greatest catches in the history of the game. The only thing really missing from this...

Twins Wednesday: Hicks activated, optioned to Double-A

Aaron Hicks' roller coaster season continues. The Minnesota Twins activated Hicks (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Double-A New Britain, where he had been on his rehab assignment. Minnesota could have reinstated him on the 25-man roster or sent him to Triple-A Rochester, but the fact that he was sent to Double-A is a telling sign. Hicks batted just .198...

Minnesota Twins: Patterns among injuries?

After missing the past couple of months due to injury, Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia have returned to the Minnesota Twins lineup and have provided power that the team very much needs. With Sam Fuld still on the disabled list with concussion-like symptoms and Daniel Santana out with an eye laceration, there is one question that I have come to consider: could there be a pattern...

Big blast helps Hicks' confidence

One good swing of the bat doesn't necessarily snap a player out of a slump, but a big hit Thursday could help boost Aaron Hicks' confidence early in the season. Minnesota's center fielder entered Thursday's series finale against Tampa Bay batting just .175 with four RBI through 20 games. He had played in all 20 of the Twins' games, including 19 starts, but had struggled to find his...

Twins' Hicks looks to go on offensive in making club

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- For most players, their rookie season is typically a memorable one. Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks would prefer to put his rookie year in the back of his memory bank. That's because Hicks -- who had a stellar spring training in 2013 -- struggled mightily in his first season in the major leagues. After tearing up the Grapefruit League with a spring performance...
