aaron hicks definitely has the inside track on immediate playing time, seeing as his competition is darin mastroianni, whose only real super positive fantasy wise is SB (and what a nice SB guy he is) but between an ankle twist for darin and the spring emergence of aaron hicks, it looks like he's getting the nod.
with boston they've got a more crowded OF situation and it still seems likely he'd be sent down despite his very !!! offense. here's what yahoo just said about hicks on sunday
Sun, Mar 24
Aaron Hicks was officially named the Twins' center fielder after going 4-for-4 against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Advice: The big game raised his spring average to .350. We don't expect Hicks to be a big asset in average or the power categories as a rookie, so his mixed-league value figures to hinge on his steal total. He swiped 32 bases in Double-A last year, and if he approaches that number for the Twins, he'll probably be a decent mixed outfielder. If he comes in closer to 15-20, like he did in his previous two full minor league seasons, then his value could be limited to AL-only leagues.
so yeah he IS the starting CF so if you're gonna take a ticket on one of them, i reckon i'd go hicks cuz he's already got the job and therefore a better breakout capacity.
