Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Tabbed as likely No. 3 hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that he envisions Hicks serving as the Yankees' No. 3 hitter in 2021, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

During the abbreviated 2020 campaign, the No. 3 spot was the most common placement for Hicks, who made 32 of his 49 starts out of that lineup slot. It's worth noting that the Yankees were without both Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton for more than half of the season, but the sluggers' return to full health heading into 2021 apparently won't affect where Hicks fits into the lineup. Coming off October 2019 Tommy John surgery, Hicks' overall production dipped in 2020, but he still showed strong on-base ability, slashing .229/.400/.390 (126 wRC+) in 135 plate appearances in that lineup spot. Even if the power numbers he delivered prior to his surgery don't return, Hicks' ability to rack up walks should put him in position to score plenty of runs in the heart of a potent Yankees lineup.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Still feeling effects of TJS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks said Thursday that his arm still doesn't "feel the same" after undergoing Tommy John Surgery in October of 2019, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The outfielder noted that he had to alter his swing this past season to avoid hyperextending his arm as a result of the procedure. There doesn't appear to be reason to be overly concerned regarding Hicks' health heading into next season given that his offensive numbers stayed relatively steady between 2019 and 2020.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Swats fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 20-6 rout of the Blue Jays.

He went back-to-back with Luke Voit in the second inning, and Hicks' blast chased Jays starter Taijuan Walker from the game. The center fielder hasn't had a multi-hit performance since Aug. 28, leaving him with a .209 batting average, but he's otherwise been fairly productive with a .374 OBP, five homers, two steals, 14 RBI and 19 runs through 43 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went back-to-back with Luke Voit in the first inning to stake the Yankees to an early lead. He brought home another run with a bases-loaded walk in the sixth to extend New York's lead to four before a bullpen implosion turned the tide in Toronto's favor. Hicks now has four homers and 13 RBI on the season with a .209/.365/.400 slash line.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: On bench for day's first game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks will sit for the afternoon portion of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

It's no surprise to see that the oft-injured veteran won't be asked to start twice in one day. Brett Gardner slides to center field in his absence, with Mike Tauchman starting in left, but Hicks will likely return to the lineup for the nightcap.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Swipes first bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks, an RBI, a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.

Hicks played a prominent part in a two-run seventh inning that gave the Yankees a temporary lead, following a walk with a steal of second base before crossing the plate on a Gio Urshela single. The swipe was the first of the campaign for Hicks, who has notched double-digit steals in three of his previous seven MLB seasons. He ranks fourth among qualified hitters with a 19.2 percent walk rate in 2020.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Back in starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (calf) will bat third and play center field Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Hicks left the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets due to calf cramps and did not start Monday's game, though he did appear off the bench. He'll be involved from the start Tuesday and will be looking to stretch his hitting streak to four games.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Singles as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (calf) singled in his only at-bat during Monday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Both Hicks and manager Aaron Boone indicated following Sunday's game that they weren't concerned about the calf cramps that forced the 30-year-old to exit that contest, and their statements were validated when Hicks notched an infield single in the ninth inning Monday. It wouldn't be a surprise for Hicks to be back starting at his customary center field position Tuesday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (calf) will be on the bench for Monday's game against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Hicks dealt with cramping in both of his calves in the second half of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets and was forced to leave the game.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

If Hicks is forced to miss any additional time, Clint Frazier or Tyler Wade could step into a role in the Yankees' outfield. However, manager Aaron Boone wasn't concerned about the injury following Sunday's contest, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
