Tigers' John Hicks: In line for reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is expected to serve as Grayson Greiner's backup at the catching position while seeing some time at first base next year, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

According to manager Ron Gardenhire, the Tigers view Greiner as the everyday catcher, though that would still leave Hicks with a couple opportunities every week. Hicks basically duplicated his production from a year ago in 2018, hitting .260/.312/.403 with nine home runs and 32 RBI. He was more productive than Greiner, so don't be surprised the two backstops wind up splitting time if Greiner isn't able to improve his offensive output.

Tigers' John Hicks: To undergo surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (groin) will undergo surgery Thursday, which is expected to sideline him for 3-to-6 weeks, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Though this doesn't officially rule Hicks out for the rest of the year, manager Ron Gardenhire stated that it will essentially be "season ending." Hicks suffered the right groin injury in early August and was placed on the DL a week ago. The Tigers are officially calling this injury a bilateral core muscle defect. Look for Jim Adduci to remain a fixture in Detroit's lineup at first base in his absence.

Tigers' John Hicks: Visiting specialist about groin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is scheduled to visit a specialist about his injured groin, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Hicks has been on the disabled list with what was originally described as a groin strain. The specialist visit will determine if he's dealing with anything more severe. His recovery timeline should become more clear following the visit.

Tigers' John Hicks: Heads to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Hicks' back-to-back absences are apparently injury-related rather than performance-related. It's unclear how long he'll be out. Grayson Greiner was called up in a corresponding move.

Tigers' John Hicks: Sits again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is not starting Wednesday against the Angels.

Hicks' modest .260/.312/.403 season line doesn't exactly cry out for a large role, and he doesn't appear to have one at the moment, sitting for three of the Tigers' last four games. Jim Adduci and his similarly mediocre .250/.280/.417 slash line will get the start at first base.
