Hicks could provide a lot of value if he can stay behind the plate. He has shown improvement defensively, though his arm is average and the receiving skills are fringy. He is a good athlete with a live body, and teams may think that will allow him to continue to develop as a catcher. Hicks has some power, but he's more likely to work the gaps while teammate Steven Proscia has more loft. Hicks has shown good plate discipline this season, though his swing can get long at times. If a team buys into him as a catcher, he could go higher than Proscia; he doesn't profile nearly as well as a first baseman or corner outfielder.
