News Flash: The A’s made a move!

Brandon Hicks was sent to the New York Mets yesterday for an undisclosed amount of cash.

Hicks was designated for assignment by the A’s on Nov. 20th, the day teams had to finalize their 40-man rosters before next week’s Rule V draft.  He played 22 games with the A’s this season, and batted .172 with three home runs and seven RBIs during two different stints with the A’s, who briefly used him as a platoon player at shortstop.

Hicks was claimed off waivers by Oakland from Atlanta March 13 and spent most of the season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he hit .244 with 18 home runs and 61 RBIs in 90 games.

Sounds like a good deal for the A’s as he probably wasn’t going to be part of their plans going forward.
