The Mets announced that they have acquired infielder Brandon Hicks from the Oakland A’s for cash considerations.
Hicks, 27, hit .172 with three home runs and seven RBI in 64 at-bats over 22 games with the A’s last season.
He also batted .244 with 18 homers and 61 RBIs in 328 at-bats with Triple-A Sacramento.
In his major league career, Hicks has started 19 games at shortstop and one apiece at first base, second base and third base. It is now more likely that Ronny Cedeno will nor be back next season.
