2015

A .296/.362/.418 batting line in 53 games with Double-A Jackson earned Hicks a promotion to Triple-A Tacoma in mid-July. The move up came with some slight growing pains, but Hicks got back on track in the Arizona Fall League, slashing an impressive .304/.396/.522 with two homers and a 6:7 BB:K in 13 games. It was enough to convince the Mariners he warranted protection from the Rule 5 draft, and they went ahead and added Hicks to their 40-man roster in November. The 25-year-old may very well get a chance to compete with Jesus Sucre for the backup job in spring training, but Hicks' power has dried up for the most part in recent seasons -- he's managed just nine homers over the last two years after smacking 15 in 2012 -- and it's unlikely he would hold value in any format in such a limited role.
