Tigers' John Hicks: Three hits in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-4 loss to the Rangers.

He now sports a .333/.387/.593 slash line over 27 August at-bats, and between Miguel Cabrera's sore back and James McCann's need for rest, Hicks could be in line for a surprising amount of playing time down the stretch, giving him fantasy value even in shallower formats as long as he stays hot at the plate.

Tigers' John Hicks: Launches three-run homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Hicks took Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia deep in the second inning, and the blast proved to be decisive in a 4-3 Detroit victory. With the trade of Alex Avila, Hicks should get some run as a backup catcher and first baseman, though he probably won't play enough to move the needle in most standard leagues. An injury to a Detroit regular could change his outlook, however, as he does offer some power potential.

Tigers' John Hicks: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers recalled Hicks from Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Matthew Mowery of The Oakland Press reports.

Hicks has shuttled between Toledo and the Tigers this year, holding a .269/.281/.428 with the Mud Hens and .299/.319/.522 in a limited big-league sample of 69 plate appearances. The Tigers' trade shipping out Justin Wilson and Alex Avila to the Cubs opens up a chance for Hicks to piece together a chunk of at-bats each week as backup catcher, with spot duty at first base and designated hitter, that may help AL-only fantasy competitors.

Tigers' John Hicks: Optioned back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

With Victor Martinez (chest) cleared to return from the disabled list, the Tigers had no room on the active roster for another position player, so Hicks will head back to the minors in search of consistent at-bats. Hicks has impressed over multiple stints with the Tigers this season by delivering a .841 OPS in 69 plate appearances, but it will likely take another injury to a catcher or first baseman before he receives another trial with the big club.

Tigers' John Hicks: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

He was recalled Friday but has spent the entire weekend on the bench. The 27-year-old has bounced between Triple-A and the majors throughout most of the season, going 15-for-50 with three homers, 12 RBI and 11 strikeouts in 15 games with the big club.
