Until Thomas stops hitting and/or Hicks starts hitting, I suggest that the Twins keep Hicks in AAA and keep Thomas in CF.

Starting Rotation

Posted by Thegrin , 21 March 2013 · 223 views

Community Blog Post
We all have seen pitchers that seemed to have difficulty in Spring Training, find their stuff once the season starts. We've see players hit for high average and then can't hit above .200 in real games.
