Hicks (Achilles) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics.

The outfielder will hit the bench for a third straight game while he continues to deal with Achilles soreness, an injury that forced him out late in Thursday's series opener. Mason Williams has been serving as Hicks' replacement in center field and has supplied two hits in seven at-bats over the last two games. Williams would presumably be in store for a full-time role this week if Hicks' injury ends up forcing him to the disabled list, but the Yankees will likely wait until Tuesday's game against the Angels before making a call on Hicks' status.
