MINNEAPOLIS - When the Twins board a plane Sunday for Cleveland, Aaron Hicks won't be on it. The Twins centerfielder,  who is on the 7-day disabled list dealing with a concussion, will remain in Minnesota.

"I feel a lot better ... Came to the field today and felt better," Hicks said Sunday, adding that fogginess has been an issue. He left the second game of a doubleheader Thursday shortly after crashing into the centerfield wall.

If he is healthy enough and clears the necessary tests, Hicks can be activated May 9, the first day of a series in Detroit with the Tigers. He could join the Twins for that leg of the road trip, assistant GM Rob Antony said.

"If I keep progressing at the rate I'm doing it, I think I should be back pretty soon," Hicks said. "If everything goes good, maybe catch up with the team in Detroit."

Hicks said he's stared to lift weights, "and I think [Monday] is when I start throwing and doing more baseball stuff."
