The Minnesota Twins activated OF Aaron Hicks (shoulder) from the disabled list and optioned him to Double-A New Britain.
Fantasy Tip: They're sticking with the outfield of Josh Willingham, Sam Fuld and Oswaldo Arcia, but that could change as Arcia's slump goes on. Hicks is a deep hold in AL-only games but doesn't deserve mixed consideration right now.

The Minnesota Twins placed OF Aaron Hicks (shoulder) on the disabled list Friday, June 13, and activated OF Sam Fuld (concussion) from the DL in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Danny Santana has been a real nice surprise filling in for Hicks in center field, both with the bat and glove. There's no reason Minnesota should go away from him with Hicks sidelined even further. Fuld gives the Twins outfield depth.

Minnesota Twins OF Aaron Hicks (shoulder) was held out for the fourth straight game Wednesday, June 11, with a sore right shoulder, and there is a chance he'll need to go back to Minnesota to be examined by doctors Thursday, June 12. Hicks is having trouble throwing the ball. SS Danny Santana has made his fourth straight start in center with Hicks out. If Hicks goes on the disabled list, OF Sam Fuld (concussion) could replace him on the roster. Fuld has been doing well on a rehab assignment with Double-A New Britain, and he homered Tuesday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Hicks avoids the DL, there's a chance that his playing time will suffer because of the way Santana has held his own with the bat and in the outfield. Consider dumping Hicks in mixed leagues, especially if he lands on the 15-day DL.
