Tigers' John Hicks: Heads to bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Hicks is hitting a fine .250/.308/.458 in six games since Miguel Cabrera went down with a season-ending biceps injury, but he'll head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale amidst an 0-for-12 slump. Niko Goodrum will pick up a start at first base in his stead.

Tigers' John Hicks: Launches home run Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the White Sox.

Hicks took Chicago starter Reynaldo Lopez deep in the second inning for his sixth home run of the season. In three games since Miguel Cabrera went down with a season-ending biceps injury and Hicks has taken over as the primary first baseman, he's 6-for-12 with a triple, a home run and three runs scored. Hicks looks like he should be a solid fantasy contributor the rest of the way now that he has a path to regular playing time.

Tigers' John Hicks: Triples, scores in Thursday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Twins.

Hicks isn't known for his speed, as this was his first triple of the season. The 28-year-old is now batting a solid .296 with a .788 OPS, and with MIguel Cabrera out for the season with a biceps injury, Hicks will have regular playing time at first base for the Tigers the rest of the way.

Tigers' John Hicks: Three hits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

Hicks is now Detroit's primary first baseman following the season-ending biceps injury suffered by Miguel Cabrera Tuesday, and the 28-year-old got off to a good start in the role. Hicks now has a strong .297 average and .782 OPS this year. Cabrera is 35 and it's not fully clear what his future looks like in Detroit after the injury, so Hicks could be auditioning for a regular role beyond just this season.

Tigers' John Hicks: Thrust into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks will serve as the Tigers' starting first baseman following Miguel Cabrera's (biceps) season-ending injury Tuesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Everyday first baseman Miguel Cabrera will miss the remainder of the season after rupturing his left biceps in Tuesday's contest. The Tigers will now turn to Hicks to fill the void at first base heading into the stretch run of the summer. Hicks received extensive playing time earlier this season while Cabrera was sidelined from April 30 to May 31 due to two separate injuries. Hicks slashed .295/.342/.438 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 28 games played during that stretch, proving that he's capable of providing fantasy value when given extended playing time. His .366 BABIP suggests that he's due for some regression, but the 28-year-old is worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.
