Hicks, who recorded two strikeouts over a scoreless eighth inning in an extra-inning loss to the Royals on Wednesday, intentionally focused on deploying his slider -- as opposed to his triple-digit sinker -- during the outing, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "That's my go-to strikeout pitch (and) it hasn't been there lately," Hicks said. "I'm not going to go out there and overthrow for 106 or something that's not going to happen. If I get a little extra and I feel like it, I'm going to go get it. If I don't, I won't."

Hicks fired a scoreless 1.1 innings in a win over the Phillies on Sunday, issuing two walks, uncorking a wild pitch, and recording a strikeout. Two of his sinkers to Odubel Herrera hit 105 mph, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Jordan Hicks.

2017

Hicks was sidelined with shoulder inflammation after he was selected in the third round of the 2015 draft, so he did not make his professional debut until last season. His numbers in the Appalachian League were not particularly pretty, but his repertoire, which includes a low-90s fastball and a slider with wipeout potential, required a challenge in the form of a promotion to the New York-Penn League in late July. Hicks walked too many hitters at both stops, but his overall production started to match his stuff against short-season hitters, who hit just .217 against him. This allowed him post a 1.76 ERA despite walking 16 over 30.2 innings. The development of his changeup along with better fastball command/control will be paramount in his quest to remain a starter, as is the case with most lower-level arms. Hicks has the raw tools to someday pitch in the middle of a big league rotation, making him worth following as he moves up the ranks.
