Cory Provus ‏@CoryProvus· 9m 
FWIW...Aaron Hicks was transferred to AAA-Rochester yesterday. Rob Antony mentioned on Sunday's #insidetwins that he'll play all 3 OF spots.

 

 

 

There was dearth of tweets about this.

 

 

Apparently Mackey didn't even know:

 

Phil Mackey ‏@PhilMackey· 12h 
And maybe I'm just being completely unreasonable, but Aaron Hicks is hitting .297/.404/.466 at AA. Shouldn't he try AAA again soon?

 

 

He doesn't show up on the Red Wings roster yet.

 

And LEN3 didn't know as of this morning at 7 AM.  The Twins are really keeping this move under the radar.  This did actually happen, right? 

 

 

Hicks batted .198 in 48 games with the Twins this season. He is currently batting .297 at Class AA New Britain with four homers and 21 RBI in 43 games. Gardenhire said he would like to see Hicks move up to Class AAA Rochester and earn a return to the majors from that level.

He appears to be on the Red Wings roster now (albeit without a number):

So assuming he's joining them in Louisville - or if not there, in Indianapolis.

 

But yes, it has been weirdly under the radar.

Ahh, good get, I see that the Wings just placed HIcks on the website roster in the last hour or so.  

 

Yesterday was an off day for New Britain, so there's no reason why Hicks shouldn't be in the Wings lineup tonight in Louisville, I believe they were carrying 14 pitchers (counting Milone), so presumably Hamburger got back on his shuttle between AAA and AA.

 

Former White Sox starter, strikeout specialist righty, Dylan Axelrod, is starting for Louisville. He lost out in the numbers game in Chicago and Cincy picked him up.in a cash transaction a couple weeks ago.  I can't remember, does Hicks still hit left-handed?

Nope, Edgar Ibarra was demoted to New Britain.  No wonder, he was really struggling on Sunday.

Good for Hicks.He really needs the AAA time.I still am of the opinion that his bat will never play as a corner outfielder, but I have been wrong before.He's been swinging well at New Britain from both sides of the plate.
