Hicks cracks at least one Top 20 list

Baseball America’s John Manuel put together his first draft of his Top 20 prospect list for Major League Baseball.

Former Minnesota Twins first-round pick Aaron Hicks just made the list at No. 18. Hicks is a five-tool outfielder who has yet to play above Class A ball. Nevertheless, as a youngster growing up in California he drew comparisons to Darryl Strawberry, and he’s done little in the Twins minor league system to make people believe that isn’t still his ceiling.

The Twins have a lot of talented young outfielders in the farm system, with Hicks joining the likes of Angel Morales and Ben Revere. But none of these players has reached Double-A ball yet.

  1. What the hell kind of video piece is that? He’s late on a pitch and hits it foul?????????

    There has to be a better video of the kid than that on youtube, isn’t there

  2. I didn’t see much from his Beloit days. I was pretty surprised too. Figured people could at least see what he looks like in this one.

  3. I saw him play in a couple games this summer. Has potential…strong arm, fast. Still has some developing to do, especially at the plate. He’s young and will be fun to watch in the future.
