The Golden Sombrero’s Top 50 Prospects: #48 – Aaron Hicks (Video)

#48 Aaron Hicks – Minnesota Twins

OF

DOB: 10-2-89

ETA: 2013

Hicks is an athletic outfielder with excellent plate discipline considering his age. As a 20-year old in the Midwest League (A) the switch-hitter slashed .279/.401/.428 while stealing over 20 bases. His 41 hits for extra bases are evidence of some power potential, and his arm plays at a plus, providing him the flexibility to slide from center to right as he climbs in the organization despite also possessing the speed and glove to man center. Hicks has a chance to be a real 5-tooler with the plate discipline necessary to stay in the game for a decade or more if health permits.
