      Mariners catcher prospect John Hicks on the radar for MLB callup

      Mariners catcher John Hicks might not be on the radar as an elite prospect, but after posting a .288/.337/.419/.756 slash line through four minor-league seasons, he at least has the attention of the Mariners' decision makers. "He's a catcher who has the ability to do a lot of things," manager Lloyd McClendon said, per The News Tribune. "His bat plays. He's got a bright future. He'll probably see significant playing time this spring." Hicks is expected to open the season at Triple-A Tacoma, but he could make his MLB debut in 2015. "Listen, you're on the 40-man roster," McClendon said. "You're on that roster for a reason. That's to (the club to) protect you in case we have injuries. Then you move up. "So, yeah, there's a chance he could see time in the big leagues this year if there's an injury."
