Hicks was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday. Hicks passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment one week prior. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for the Rangers.
Hicks was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday. Hicks was added to the roster in late June when Jose Trevino (forearm) landed on the injured list, and he's now lost his spot on the 26-man and 40-man rosters with Trevino healthy. Hicks appeared in 10 games and had a .258/.258/.677 slash line with four home runs and seven RBI.
Hicks went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Tigers. Hicks had his contract selected June 29 due to an injury to Jose Trevino (forearm). He's had quite an impressive performance since, logging four home runs, six RBI and six runs scored across only three starts. While that's impressive, Hicks last appeared in the majors in 2019, when he posted a 56 wRC+ across 333 plate appearances.
Hicks went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 7-3 win over Seattle on Saturday. Hicks went yard off opposing starter Marco Gonzales to lead off both the third and fourth innings in only his third appearance of 2021. He last played in the big leagues in 2019 and slashed .210/.240/.379 with 29 runs and 35 RBI in 95 games with Detroit that season.
Hicks went 2-for-4 with a home run and a pair of runs scored Thursday against Oakland. Making his first major-league appearance since 2019, the former Mariner and Tiger blasted a solo homer in the sixth inning and added a single in the eighth. The 31-year-old has enjoyed productive stretches in his previous MLB stints -- he had a .766 OPS for Detroit in 2017 and popped 13 homers in 2019 -- but is likely headed back to Triple-A Round Rock once Jose Trevino (forearm) is back to full health.
