Hicks went 2-for-5 with two home runs in Friday's win over the Orioles, and he'll keep the starting center field job when Jacoby Ellsbury returns from a concussion, manager Joe Girardi told the New York Daily News. "He's going to play a lot. That's the bottom line, when (Ellsbury) comes back," Girardi said.

It sounds like Ellsbury will move to a fourth outfielder role as a result. Hicks' surprising start to the season hasn't shown any signs of slowing down as he's hitting .393 in June.
