04:38 AM ET 04.06 | Not the start everyone was hoping for. Minnesota Twins starting center fielder Aaron Hicks has a stat line of .059/.158/.217 with eight strikeouts in the first four games of the regular season, but the team isn't concerned just yet. General manager Terry Ryan suggested the club will be patient with the 20-year-old Hicks despite early struggles, according to Phil Mackey and Brandon Warne of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities. Hicks batted .349/.407/1.051 with 16 strikeouts in the 22 spring training games prior to the start of the regular season. With eight strikeouts in the just four games to start the year compared to 16 in 22 games in Spring Training, Hicks may be a little too anxious at the plate and will need to calm down moving forward.

Coming out of Double A last year what really did the Twinkles think he could do. They need to send him to back to Triple A to lean to hit a moving fastball and a curve ball before it is to late and he loses all of his confidence in himself.
