  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: On bench Tuesday

    Hicks will sit Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Hicks has slumped hard over his last 11 games, hitting .069/.250/.103, though he's at least pitched in with three steals over that stretch and has a promising 7:8 BB:K. Aaron Judge will slide to center field in his absence.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Notches theft in loss

    Hicks entered Saturday's game as a pinch runner in the eighth inning and recorded a stolen base.

    Hicks took over on first base for Giancarlo Stanton after the slugger singled with one out in the eighth. Hicks eventually stole second base but was left there as Liam Hendriks struck out a pair of batters to close out the inning. The speedy outfielder leads the Yankees with five steals on the season, but he's slashing a modest .217/.359/.265 across 104 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Not starting Saturday

    Hicks isn't starting Saturday against the White Sox.

    Hicks started in the last four games but went just 1-for-15 with a double, a run, an RBI, two walks and three strikeouts. Aaron Judge will shift to center field while Gleyber Torres enters the lineup at second base.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Swipes two bags

    Hicks went 0-for-1 with three walks, a run and two stolen bases in a 4-2 loss to Texas on Sunday in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

    Hicks walked in the first, third and seventh innings, swiping second following the former two free passes, and scored on Giancarlo Stanton's home run in the fifth. The 32-year-old's four thefts through 27 team games put him on pace for a career-high 24 while the three walks give the veteran outfielder six over his last three games.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Breather after two games Sunday

    Hicks is not in the starting lineup for Monday's contest against the Rangers.

    After starting both games of Sunday's doubleheader against the Rangers, going 0-for-5 with three walks, three strikeouts and two stolen bases, Hicks will get a breather in Monday's series finale. Aaron Judge will slide over to center field and bat second in the game.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: On base four times

    Hicks went 2-for-2 with two walks and a run in a 3-0 victory against the Royals on Saturday.

    Hicks walked in the second and fourth innings while singling in the sixth and eighth to record his best game at the dish this season. The perfect outing increased his season line to .306/.426/.367 as the 32-year-old has more walks than strikeouts, though just one of his 15 hits has gone for extra bases.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Reinstated from paternity list

    Hicks (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list Friday.

    Hicks was away from the team for three games following the birth of his child, but he'll be available for Friday's series opener in Kansas City. The 32-year-old is hitting .273 with a homer, six runs, four RBI and two stolen bases this year.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Won't be available in Baltimore

    Yankees manager Aaron Hicks confirmed that Hicks (personal) won't be available for the team's three-game series versus the Orioles that begins Tuesday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    New York placed Hicks on the paternity list Tuesday after he returned to his offseason home in Arizona to witness the birth of his third child. Though players placed on the list are eligible to rejoin their team in as little as one day, Hicks looks set to spend the entirety of his allotted three days with his growing family. Expect him to return from the list and rejoin the Yankees lineup in Friday's series opener in Kansas City.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Away on paternity leave

    Hicks was placed on the paternity list Tuesday.

    Players may spend between one and three days on the paternity list. That means Hicks should return sometime between Wednesday and Friday. Aaron Judge has slid to center field each time Hicks needed a rest so far this season, opening up right field for Giancarlo Stanton, an arrangement which the Yankees will likely use until Hicks returns.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Swipes second bag

    Hicks went 1-for-4 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 10-2 win over Cleveland.

    Hicks came into the contest having gone just 3-for-17 (.176) over his previous five games, but he was productive in Sunday's rout, knocking in a run in the third inning and scoring after singling and stealing second in the fifth. The theft was his second of the campaign in three attempts. Hicks didn't notch any steals last season but has recorded double-digit thefts in three big-league campaigns -- most recently in 2018, when he stole 11 bags.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Not starting Friday

    Hicks will sit Friday against the Guardians.

    Hicks hits the bench after starting six straight games, a stretch in which he went 4-for-20 with a .520 OPS. Aaron Judge will slide to center field in his absence, with Giancarlo Stanton starting in right and DJ LeMahieu serving as the designated hitter.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Settling into leadoff spot

    Hicks will bat leadoff for the Yankees' fourth straight game Wednesday, and manager Aaron Boone stated Tuesday that he likes Hicks in that spot, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    The Yankees have used a variety of leadoff hitters this season, including Josh Donaldson and Anthony Rizzo. However, Hicks has now claimed that spot in four straight games -- once against a right-hander and three times against a lefty -- and has gone 4-for-9 with three walks, three runs and a stolen base over the first three of those contests. Boone didn't commit to inserting the switch hitter atop the lineup permanently but did suggest that Hicks has earned the role for the time being, stating, "I still feel like we have a number of (leadoff) candidates, but I do like Aaron right now." Hicks has started the season on a high note, slashing .345/.459/.448 with a homer, three RBI, a steal and four runs over 38 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: On base three times Saturday

    Hicks went 2-for-3 with a run and a walk in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

    Hicks again worked as a catalyst atop the Yankees' order, reaching base three times and scoring New York's first run. The only downside of his performance was a missed opportunity on the basepaths, as he was thrown out trying to steal in the first inning. The outfielder is tied for second on the team with five walks on the season and has posted an excellent .348/.464/.478 slash line through 29 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Hicks will sit Thursday against Toronto.

    Hicks sits for the second time in the season's first seven games. He's off to a strong start this season, hitting .353/.450/.529 with one homer. Aaron Judge slides to center field in his absence, with Giancarlo Stanton starting in right and Gleyber Torres serving as the designated hitter.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Pops first homer

    Hicks went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Blue Jays.

    His two-run shot of Yusei Kikuchi in the second inning stood up as the game-winning hit. It was also Hicks' first long ball of the campaign. The 32-year-old outfielder has had trouble staying both healthy and productive throughout his career, but he's off to a great start to 2022, slashing .308/.438/.538 through five games.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Sitting Saturday

    Hicks is not in Saturday's lineup against the Red Sox, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

    Aaron Judge will slide over to center field as the Yankees shift things around in Game 2 of the season. Hicks' glove should keep him in the mix most days, but the Yankees have nine guys for eight spots, so there will be some off days mixed in when the team is at full health.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Starting against Orioles

    Hicks (wrist) is starting Saturday's Grapefruit League game against Baltimore.

    Hicks took batting practice when the Yankees reported to camp last weekend, and he'll debut in a spring game against the Orioles on Saturday. The 32-year-old will start in center field and bat third. Hicks is coming off a pair of procedures in recent years, as he underwent Tommy John surgery in October of 2019 before missing most of the 2021 campaign due to a left wrist procedure that he underwent in May. He should be healthy ahead of the 2022 season, but his lack of durability has been a concern for most of his career.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Takes BP, looks healthy

    Hicks (wrist) took batting practice during the Yankees' team workout Sunday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

    The Yankees haven't formally declared that Hicks will be ready for Opening Day, but given that reports earlier in the offseason indicated that he was expected to be cleared for full baseball activities by December or January, the 32-year-old appears likely to avoid a stint on the injured list to begin 2022. Of course, Hicks has never showed the ability to stay healthy for long during his career, so fantasy managers shouldn't draft him with the expectation that he'll be a mainstay in what projects to be a strong lineup for the entire 162-game slate. Moreover, questions remain about whether he'll ever be able to recapture the 27-home run power he displayed during the 2018 season now that he's since had Tommy John surgery in October 2019 and left wrist surgery last May.
