Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Set for Monday activation
Manager Aaron Boone said Hicks (back) will be activated off the 10-day injured list for Monday's series opener against the Orioles, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Hicks has been on a minor-league rehab assignment over the past week and apparently hasn't had any issues with the back strain that's sidelined him since early March. Even though he missed out on the opportunity to play one final rehab game after Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre had their Sunday contest postponed, Hicks apparently proved his health by going 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and a stolen base one day earlier. Hicks' impending return should provide a major boost to a New York lineup that is still missing the likes of Aaron Judge (oblique) and Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder).
