Hicks went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk during an 8-4 loss against the Rockies on Sunday.
The 29-year-old only has 10 homers this season, but that can be explained by the fact he missed all of April and part of May because of a back problem. Hicks is posting about the same home-run percentage that he did a year ago when he hit 27 long balls. He is batting .250 with 20 extra-base hits, 32 RBI, 33 runs and one steal in 180 at-bats during 2019.
Hicks isn't in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against Tampa Bay.
Hicks came through with a pair of hits, including a solo homer in Game 1, earning him the rest of the night off. Brett Gardner will man center field and bat leadoff in Hicks' place.
Hicks is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
Hicks is batting .315/.400/.630 over his last 15 games, and the Yankees just returned from the All-Star break, so manager Aaron Boone's decision to withhold him from the lineup is somewhat surprising. Boone may just have wanted to have some of the team's reserve options stay mentally prepared heading into the second half, as the lightly used Mike Tauchman will get the nod in the outfield in Hicks' stead.
Hicks went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in a 4-3 loss to the Rays on Saturday.
This three-hit game, which was his first of the season, extended his hitting streak to seven games. During the streak, Hicks has raised his season average 36 points. He is batting .238 with eight home runs, 28 RBI, 26 runs and one steal in 147 at-bats this season.
Hicks is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Tampa Bay.
Hicks was in center field the last 10 games and had a .932 OPS with three doubles, two homers, eight runs scored and nine RBI, but he'll head to the bench Friday. Brett Gardner will slide over the center field while Mike Tauchman enters the lineup in left.
Hicks went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Rays in 10 innings.
Hicks has reached base in each of the Yankees' last 10 games, delivering a .297/.391/.541 slash line to go with two home runs, nine RBI and eight runs. After a slow start at the dish following his return from the injured list in mid-May, Hicks looks to be dialed in again, but his rising on-base percentage hasn't translated to additional running opportunities. He's logged only two stolen-base attempts over 38 games this season.
Hicks went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs in the Yankees' 10-8 win over the Blue Jays on Monday.
Hicks chipped in on a big day for the Yankees offense with a three-run long ball off Aaron Sanchez in the fifth inning for his fifth homer of the season. He still has yet to really get going since returning from the injured list, as Hicks is slashing .204/.305/.372 through 113 at-bats. This was his first long ball since June 7, so perhaps it gets him rolling at the dish.
Hicks (shoulder) will start in center field and bat sixth Saturday against the Astros, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
After missing the previous two games due to right shoulder inflammation, Hicks received the green light to rejoin the lineup when he woke up Saturday without any soreness. With his cortisone shot having provided the desired effect, Hicks should be ready to handle an everyday role heading into the upcoming week.
Hicks is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Astros due to right shoulder inflammation, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Hicks sat out Thursday's game due to the issue but doesn't plan to go on the injured list since an MRI revealed nothing more than the inflammation. He also received a cortisone shot and expects to rejoin the lineup Saturday. The 29-year-old has apparently been battling the issue for a week and a half, which could help explain his 3-for-34 slump over his past nine games. Brett Gardner is starting in center field Friday while Cameron Maybin grabs the start in left.
Hicks is not in Thursday's lineup against the Astros.
Hicks is in a rough patch at the plate, hitting .132 with one home run and one steal in his last 10 games. However, his strikeout rate (20.5 percent) and walk rate (13.6 percent) are still favorable over that span, so he should snap out of things soon. Cameron Maybin and Brett Gardner will start alongside Giancarlo Stanton.
Hicks is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
The Yankees are likely just giving Hicks a maintenance day after he started in each of the team's last nine games and hit only .188 over that stretch. Despite his lackluster production since returning from the injured list in mid-May, Hicks is the likeliest candidate among the Yankees' outfielders to retain a full-time role once Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) and Aaron Judge (oblique) are back in action, thanks to his often elite defense. Stanton is on track to return from the IL on Tuesday, while Judge's reinstatement could come days later.
Hicks won't start the evening portion of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
Hicks went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored in the day's first game. The Yankees won't ask the injury-prone outfielder to play two games in one day, so Brett Gardner will slide to center field with Cameron Maybin starting in left.
Hicks went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to Cleveland.
The 29-year-old has found his power stroke, homering three times in the last four games, and the surge has pushed his slash line up to .239/.325/.433. Hicks was understandably rusty after missing the first month-and-a-half of the season with back trouble, but he's still been productive since his return with four home runs, 12 runs and 15 RBI in only 18 games.
Hicks is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Hicks has started the past four games for the Yankees, going 4-for-15 (.267) with a homer, four RBI and a 2:3 BB:K during those contests. In his absence, the Yankees will go with an outfield consisting of Cameron Maybin, Brett Gardner and Clint Frazier from left to right.
Hicks is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
Hicks will take a seat in favor of Cameron Maybin with the Yankees and Padres closing out their series with a day game after a night game. Since returning from a back injury and making his season debut May 15, Hicks has gone 9-for-43 (.209 average) with a 29.4 percent strikeout rate.
Hicks will sit for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals.
Hicks went 1-for-4 with a walk and a pair of runs in the afternoon contest. It's no surprise that he won't be asked to play two games in one day just 10 days after returning from a long absence due to back issues. Brett Gardner will start in center field, with Cameron Maybin starting in left.
Hicks is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.
Hicks started six games in a row after returning from the injured list but hasn't quite gotten going at the plate, hitting .182 with a 32.1 percent strikeout rate. Brett Gardner gets the call in center field, with Cameron Maybin starting in left.
Hicks went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, two runs and two walks to help the Yankees to a 13-5 win over the Rays on Sunday.
A day after posting his first multi-hit game of the season, Hicks had an active day at the plate again, reaching base three times and cranking his first long ball of the season in the fourth inning off Charlie Morton. He still has just three hits in first 16 at-bats since returning from the injured list, but he looks to be heating up and should remain a fixture in the Yankees' lineup moving forward.
Hicks went 2-for-5 in a 2-1 loss to the Rays on Saturday.
Hicks had been 0-for-8 with four strikeouts since his return from the injured list with a back injury, so it was good to see him check in with a couple of knocks, even on a futile day for the Yankees' offense. Now healthy, hopefully this is a sign the 29-year-old's bat is set to get going and he can recapture his form from the last two seasons that saw him log an OPS over .800.
Hicks is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
Hicks will have to wait until the second half of Wednesday's twin bill to make his 2019 big-league debut, as the Yankees want to ease the outfielder into action after his lengthy stay on the IL to open the year. Brett Gardner is starting in center field in this one, with Mike Tauchman getting the nod in left field.
