It was just announced that Aaron Hicks has decided to stop switch-hitting and will exclusively hit as a Right Hand Batter. This decision (which he made, suggesting that he lost confidence on hitting left-handed) was bless by the Twins' manager. Hicks was hitting 263/.417/.342 (109 OPS+) as RHB and .149/.284/.209 as LHB so far in 2014. There might be some adjustment hitting from the right side against RHPs, however it is a worth-while decision, which might give the Twins a reliable bat (and glove, who has been named as a top 100 prospect by Baseball America in 4 different seasons, and as late as 2013) at Center Field, without having to deal with transactions involving replacement level players.
