Minnesota Twins OFs Aaron Hicks, Jordan Schafer, Eddie Rosario and Shane Robinson are essentially all battling for the starting center field job in spring training, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor said the competition remains wide open, but Hicks is believed to be the favorite for the job and has hit .300/.400/.500 with two triples and two RBI in eight games. Rosario has also turned heads, but he's not on the current active roster and hasn't played above Class AA. Molitor thinks Hicks needs to win the job to make the roster, too, because the team wants him to play every day to further his development.
Fantasy Tip: With Hicks being the favorite for the job, he has to carry the most fantasy value, albeit limited. Hicks could also end up in a platoon in center, which makes his path to consistent at-bats shaky. None of these options should be drafted in standard leagues, and even Hicks is only worth a low investment in AL-only formats.
