Hicks (back) was spotted taking batting practice on the field prior to Thursday's series finale against the Mariners, David Lennon of Newsday reports.

Hicks has appeared in a trio of minor-league rehab games with High-A Tampa over the past three days, going 0-for-11 with a walk and three strikeouts in those contests. Given the length of his absence, the outfielder will likely need to play in a few more rehab games before being cleared to rejoin the big-league club. As such, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger speculates that Hicks will continue his rehab with Double-A Trenton or Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over the weekend before potentially being activated from the injured list when the Yankees return home Monday.
