Hicks went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in the Yankees' 8-6 win over the Tigers on Friday. After going 0-for-4 in his return from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, Hicks tallied a pair of homers against Detroit starter Mike Fiers, including an inside-the-park round-tripper on a deep fly ball that hit off the wall and bounced into no-man's land away from the Tigers' outfielders. Hicks looks healthy, so feel free to plug him back into your lineup as he looks to build on a 2017 season that saw him slash .266/.372/.475 in 301 at-bats.
Hicks will bat sixth and play center against the Tigers on Friday, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record reports. Hicks was activated from the 10-day DL prior to Thursday's game, during which he went 0-for-4 with one strikeout while serving as the Yankees' designated hitter. He will slide back into his primary position in center field for Friday's series opener in Detroit, which allows Giancarlo Stanton to return to the DH spot.
Hicks (ribs) was activated from the disabled list and will act as the designated hitter for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. As expected, Hicks will return to game action, but the Yankees will ease him back into the lineup by keeping him off the field Thursday. He should resume regular center field duties relatively soon.
Hicks (ribs) may be back with the Yankees on Thursday depending on his status following Wednesday's minor-league rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record reports. Hicks has been on the disabled list with a right intercostal muscle strain since March 30, though he was able to finally hit the field with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. During that contest, he went 1-for-3 and will look to make it through a second-straight outing without experiencing any problems. Even though the Yankees' outfield depth is extremely thin at the moment, it still seems unlikely that Hicks would be rushed back to play a third straight day during Thursday's finale in Boston instead of getting the night off and joining the team in Detroit.
Hicks (ribs) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Hicks has been working his way back from a right intercostal muscle strain that he suffered during the season opener. The 28-year-old outfielder has been able to take batting practice in recent days with no issue, clearing the way for him to head out on a rehab assignment. If all goes well in his return to game action, Hicks could rejoin the Yankees sometime during their weekend series against the Tigers.
