The Minnesota Twins announced on March 24, 2013, that Hicks would be their starting center fielder. To honor Dave Winfield, who wore 32 for the Twins, he chose his new number. On August 1, he was transferred to AAA and did not return in 2013.
Hicks batted.192 with a.259 on-base percentage in 281 at-bats in 2013.
Souhan stated in his column for the Star Tribune that he had become “the latest unpaid advocate for the Public Service Announcement that advises baseball fans to not believe anything they see in spring training.”
While Hicks had a disappointing 2013 season, he has been selected as the team’s starting center fielder for 2014. It was difficult to see much progress in Hicks’ plate discipline throughout the 2014 season.
Hicks had a .201 batting average in 47 games before being sent to Double A on June 9.
Due to a lack of confidence in his left-handed batting ability, Hicks decided to give up switch-hitting in 2014. However, less than a month later, he returned to switch hitting.
Hicks slugged .256 with 11 home runs and 33 RBIs in 97 games during the 2015 season.
The Twins dealt Hicks to the New York Yankees on November 11, 2015, in exchange for outfielder John Ryan Murphy. His quickness, a powerful throwing arm, and the ability to get on base against left-handed pitching made him a desirable target for the Yankees.
