Apparently there is some plan to get Hicks time in RF:
–Aaron Hicks could start taking more fly balls in right field in order to get him and rookie center fielder Danny Santana in the lineup at the same time, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. With Oswaldo Arcia ailing (sprained right ankle), Jason Kubel got the start in right over Chris Parmelee. It was just the second start in right for Kubel since the season’s first week.
It was going to happen anyway with Buxton arriving at some point next year (let's hope). It might be easier for Santana to stay in CF as he has been primarily an infielder and have Hicks, an outfielder, move to a new position.
