Not fast maybe - but no where near a bust at this point in his career. All he does is produce............... Can't call that a Bust
    No I wouldn't call his overall game a bust at all. I was simply referring to his individual at bats. He's a high HR, high K kind of guy. Boom or Bust.

    Hicks has a nice 7 game hitting streak including 4 multi-hit games and 8 RBI over that stretch extending his league lead in that department. Hicks now has 81RBI on the season pulling away from teammate Adam Walker who is now 12 behind. 19-year-old middle infielder Jorge Polanco is now 3rd.

    These guys really should be in Ft. Myers.

    Hicks' first game at Ft. Myers was a 1/4 night. The hit was a 2 run HR. He struck out one time. Nice start.

    Hicks' fifth game in High A was a big one as he went 3-4 with 2 BB. He hit a 2-R HR, plating 3 total RBI and scoring 4 runs.

    Hicks has just one multi-hit game in his last seven and his average has dropped to .255. He has had only two multi-strikeout games over that same period however while drawing 5 walks and scoring 6 runs.

    Hicks has only two extra base hits in his last ten games, both being doubles. He is getting on base however, with hits in all but two of the games. He has nine strikeouts over that span but only one multi-strikeout game.

    For the year he is still hitting .295/.359/.474 with 15 HR and 96 RBI.

    Hicks has a 1.117 OPS over his last 10 games. He has seven extra base hits with two HR and five doubles. He has a 6/7 BB/K ration over that period and has raised his average in the FSL to .299. On the year his counting stats are .297 avg, 17 HR and 105 RBI.

    Hicks is proving to be a bargain for a 16th round pick and he'll be angling for a promotion to New Britain to start next year and may have surpassed Kennys Vargas as the organizations top 1B prospect.

    Hicks is finishing the regular season on a bit of a cold streak. On the heels of perhaps his most impressive run of the season, he has managed only 1 extra base hit over the last ten games with an OPS of mearly .531.

    One last regular season series to go until Hicks has a chance to play playoff hero once again.
