Hicks, who signed a one-year, $740,000 deal with the Angels this offseason, is off to a strong start this spring.

He's 8-for-21 (.381) with one home run and four RBIs with an OPS of 1.314. He's expected to factor in as a consistent player on the Angels' roster this year, likely splitting time in the outfield with Jo Adell.
