Hicks (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday. Hicks isn't expected to take the field again this season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist, so it was only a matter of time before the Yankees moved him to the 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Nester Cortes had his contract selected in a corresponding move Sunday.
Hicks (wrist) is expected to miss the remainder of the season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Hicks was ruled out indefinitely after he elected to have surgery on his left wrist last week, and manager Aaron Boone acknowledged Thursday that the center fielder is unlikely to return this season. Brett Gardner should serve as the primary option in center field going forward, while Estevan Florial was called up Thursday and could compete for playing time in the outfield.
Hicks (wrist) will undergo surgery and will be sidelined indefinitely, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. The 31-year-old has been on anti-inflammatories for the past week while deciding whether to undergo surgery for a torn wrist tendon sheath, and he's now decided to go under the knife. Hicks doesn't have an official timeline for this return, but his rehab will be measured in months, not weeks, so it's safe to rule him out for the foreseeable future. He could end up missing the rest of the 2021 campaign.
Hicks (wrist) will be on anti-inflammatories for about a week before deciding whether to undergo surgery, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Hicks was placed on the injured list last Saturday after being diagnosed with a torn wrist tendon sheath. There has been hope that the outfielder can avoid surgery, but much will depend on how his wrist responds to the cycle of medication. Should he need surgery, Hicks could be out for the remainder of the season, Justin Shackil of Sirius XM reports.
Manager Aaron Boone said after Saturday's win over the Orioles that Hicks (wrist) will be placed on the injured list, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. The team was hoping the 31-year-old would be able to avoid the injured list despite tearing a sheath that holds a tendon in his left wrist, but it's not a major surprise he still ended up on the shelf. Boone previously said it's possible Hicks would receive surgery, so his return timeline remains unclear while the next step in the recovery is determined. Brett Gardner should see increased time in center field for the Yankees in the meantime.
