Twins' John Hicks: Claimed by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

John Hicks was claimed off waivers by the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The 26-year-old spent last season with the Mariners organization, hitting .245 with six home runs in 83 games at Triple-A Tacoma. In 17 major league contests, Hicks went just 2-for-32 at the plate. Hicks will add depth at catcher behind Kurt Suzuki and John Ryan Murphy, who was acquired in exchange for Aaron Hicks in November.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hicks was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Monday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

After the Mariners signed Chris Iannetta, a move had to be made to make a spot available on the 40-man roster, and Hicks was the guy who was chosen to be sent down.

Mariners catcher prospect John Hicks on the radar for MLB callup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.”
