Top Aaron Hicks News

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Loses hold of everyday role

    Hicks is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Now on the bench for the third straight contest and the fourth time in five games, Hicks appears to have faded into a fourth-outfielder role after slashing a dismal .158/.264/.158 over 24 games since the All-Star break. The Yankees will give Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre call-up Estevan Florial a second straight start in center field Thursday. Florial looks like he'll get the opportunity to prove he's worthy of an everyday role, at least until the Yankees get Harrison Bader (foot) back from the injured list in September.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Still not starting

    Hicks isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Takes seat Tuesday

    Hicks is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays.

    Hicks will sit for the second time in three days while the Yankees roll out an outfield of Andrew Benintendi, Aaron Judge and Marwin Gonzalez from left to right. Dating back to July 28, Hicks has gone 5-for-53 (.094 average) with no extra-base hits over a stretch of 16 games. He could be in danger of falling into more of a part-time role by the time Giancarlo Stanton (Achilles) is ready to return from the injured list later this month.

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

    Hicks is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Three hits in loss

    Hicks went 3-for-4 with one RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 12-9 loss against the Cardinals.

    Hicks broke out of an 0-for-29 slump with three hits Sunday but is still slashing a meager .226/.347/.319. Due to the poor health of the New York outfield and previous struggles of the recently traded Joey Gallo, Hicks has earned mostly everyday playing time this season, but with the recent acquisitions of Harrison Bader and Andrew Benintendi, Hicks will need to continue to hit if he is to stay in the lineup come September.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Removed with hamstring cramping

    Hicks exited Sunday's win over the Orioles due to hamstring cramping, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    Hicks went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a walk and a strikeout to begin Sunday's matchup, but he was replaced by a pinch runner in the top of the ninth inning. The issue likely stemmed from the heat in Baltimore on Sunday, and Hicks should be considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Mets.

    Hicks hasn't played since he fouled a ball off his right shin Tuesday against the Reds.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Officially not starting Thursday

    Hicks (shin) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Reds.

  • Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Eyeing weekend return

    Hicks (shin), who is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, said he's hopeful to return to the starting nine for this weekend's series with the Red Sox, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Hicks' comments would seem to indicate he's also ruling himself out for Thursday's series finale with Cincinnati since he won't be performing any on-field activity Wednesday. The 32-year-old was forced out early in Tuesday's 4-3 loss after fouling a ball off his right shin, but he escaped with a bruise after postgame testing ruled out any structural damage. Joey Gallo will replace Hicks in the New York outfield Wednesday.
