by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks isn't starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Although Hicks isn't in the lineup for the afternoon portion of Saturday's twin bill, he should be back in the starting nine for the second game. Brett Gardner will start in center field with Mike Tauchman taking over as the left fielder.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Not starting second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks isn't in the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Hicks went 1-for-3 with a walk in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader, but he'll play a bench role for the second contest. Mike Tauchman will start in center field in his place, batting sixth.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks will sit Saturday against the Red Sox.

Hicks has handled a fairly heavy workload in his first games since recovering from Tommy John surgery, starting five of the first seven games. He's grabbed just three hits so far, but a homer and five walks have helped him to a solid .818 OPS. Brett Gardner slides to center field Saturday, with Mike Tauchman starting in left.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a victory over Baltimore on Wednesday.

Hicks smoked a 373-foot home run to right field in the third inning for his first long ball of the season. Through four games, Hicks has gone 2-for-11 (.182) while striking out four times.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Hicks is 1-for-7 with a pair of strikeouts through the first two games of the season and will take a seat Sunday. Mike Tauchman will start in center field for the Yankees in the series finale.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks noted that he feels "really, really good" and appears to be set to play Opening Day, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

"You always want to be able to be the guy that makes Opening Day," Hicks stated Sunday. "I'm kind of just blessed to be able to have the opportunity to still make Opening Day and not miss a single game." The opportunity comes as a result of the long MLB hiatus, which has given Hicks the extra time needed to heal after he underwent Tommy John surgery last October. The 30-year-old should open the season as the Yankees' everyday centerfielder, though it's important to note that he's not yet 100 percent recovered. "You don't really fully feel 100 percent -- they say it takes like a year to fully feel back to normal again -- but I feel really, really good," Hicks indicated Sunday.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Leading off in intrasqaud game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) is starting in center field and batting leadoff in Monday's intrasquad game.

All of the Yankees' best, healthy position players are in the lineup for this contest, with Hicks leading off for the de facto "varsity" squad. He said earlier this month that his arm felt game ready and he has been taking live batting practice, so he appears to be fully recovered from October 2019 Tommy John surgery.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Ready for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks said his arm felt "game-ready" Saturday as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Hicks underwent the procedure back in October, but the recovery from the surgery is shorter for hitters than it is for pitchers, so the delayed season has bought him the opportunity to return without missing any games. Assuming he gets through the next couple weeks without setbacks, he's expected to serve as the Yankees' Opening Day center fielder.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Takes live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) faced live pitching Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

This is another step in the right direction for Hicks, who continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery he underwent in October. Barring any setbacks during summer camp, he's expected to be ready to go for the start of the season. Assuming that's the case, Hicks should serve as the Yankees' primary center fielder during the team's 60-game slate.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: On track for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that Hicks (elbow) should be ready to go for the start of the season if he avoids any setbacks during summer camp, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Cashman's comments essentially confirm what Hicks said about his health status less than two weeks ago coming off of the Tommy John surgery he required in October. Hicks still hasn't completely finished off his throwing program, but he's otherwise been able to go through a full range of baseball activities in the three and a half months since the 2020 season was suspended. Assuming he receives full clearance for Opening Day on July 23 or 24, Hicks should serve as the team's primary center fielder during the Yankees' 60-game slate.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Says he'll be ready in July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) said he'll be ready to play if the MLB season resumes in July, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

Before MLB suspended its season in mid-March, Hicks was on track to open the campaign on the injured list while he continued to recover for the Tommy John surgery he required last October. With the season on hiatus for more than three months, however, Hicks has been able to make ample progress in his rehab without missing any games, putting him on track to be an option for the Yankees if or when Opening Day arrives. Hicks told King that in addition to taking batting practice without incident for the past two months, he's at about "80 percent" of the way through his throwing program, with the 30-year-old having pushed up his throwing distance to 160 feet. Assuming the Yankees are satisfied with where he stands on the health front and commit to Hicks as the club's everyday center fielder in 2020, Mike Tauchman and Clint Frazier look to be most at risk of losing out on steady at-bats, especially if Aaron Judge (ribs) is also ready to go at some point in July.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Progresses to batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) took batting practice Monday, SportsNet New York reports.

General manager Brian Cashman said less than a week earlier that Hicks had resumed taking dry swings, so his ability to take BP represents another step forward in his recovery from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in October. Hicks is expected to be ready to at least serve as a designated hitter when the season resumes, and Cashman suggested that the 30-year-old is a "legit option" to reclaim his normal duties in center field at some point during the summer.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Coming along well in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Hicks (elbow) has advanced to taking dry swings in addition to taking part in a throwing program, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

The organization is seemingly pleased with how Hicks is bouncing back from the Tommy John surgery he required for his right elbow in October, with Cashman noting that the 30-year-old is a "legit option" to reclaim his everyday role in center field at some point during the summer. Hicks should continue to gradually increase the distance of his throws and intensity of his batting work on his own in the weeks to come before the Yankees are cleared to resume full-squad workouts.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Increases throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday in an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that Hicks (elbow) has been throwing long toss from 90-plus feet and hitting soft-toss pitching from both sides of the plate.

Hicks is at about the six-and-a-half-month mark in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, a procedure that the Yankees estimated would sideline him for 8-to-10 months. With that timeline in mind, Hicks is seemingly on track to gain clearance for game action as soon as early July, potentially giving him an outside shot at cracking the Yankees' Opening Day roster depending on when Major League Baseball elects to begin its season. The eventual returns of Hicks and Aaron Judge (ribs) from the injuries that sidelined them throughout spring training will likely translate to more limited at-bats for the likes of Mike Tauchman, Miguel Andujar and Clint Frazier.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Taking swings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) has started swinging, in addition to throwing, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

He is working out in Arizona and has advanced in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. It was reported in early March that Hicks was targeting a return in June or July, so depending on when play resumes, he may not miss much time at all. This would give the Yankees a pretty crowded outfield, especially if Aaron Judge (rib) is able to recover as well.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Throwing in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that Hicks (elbow) is working through his throwing program with a physical therapist in Arizona, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Boone indicated the 30-year-old was in the early stages of the throwing program last week, and he will continue ramping up over the coming weeks. Hicks underwent Tommy John surgery in October and could be fully cleared in June or July, with the delayed start to the regular season potentially allowing him to miss fewer games he would under normal circumstances.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Beginning throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

HIcks (elbow) is in the early stages of a throwing program and remains in line for a summer return, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Hicks underwent Tommy John surgery at the end of October and was originally expected to miss the first few months of the campaign. While a return in June or July remains feasible, the 30-year-old could log more games than anticipated this season due to the delay to the start of the regular season.

March 1, 2020 02:04 PM
Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Targeting mid-summer return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Hicks (elbow) could realistically be ready to make his season debut for the Yankees in June or July, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Boone said that while everything is "going to plan so far" in the outfielder's recovery from Tommy John surgery, Hicks will remain on a rehab timeline similar to the one former Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius required for the elbow procedure he had in October 2018. In that instance, Gregorius was able to make his 2019 debut in early June, so Hicks looks like he'll need at least seven months of rehab before he's activated from the injured list. While Hicks is on the mend for the first few months of the season, Mike Tauchman and Brett Gardner should see the majority of the starts in center field.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Aims to throw by end of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) is hoping to be throwing by the end of spring training, Mike Rosenstein of NJ Advance Media reports.

Hicks underwent Tommy John surgery at the end of October following an injury-plagued 2019 season in which he played only 59 games. Although he has set his sights on beginning a throwing regimen, it will be just the first step in a recovery process that will then progress to hitting and other baseball activities. August remains a reasonable return target for the 30-year-old.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday.

Hicks was sidelined for most of the second half of 2019, but returned for the ALCS in October. The 30-year-old will likely be sidelined until around August, and it's unclear who will fill his role in center field, although Brett Gardner could be an option if the team is able to re-sign him. Hicks hit .235/.325/.443 with 12 home runs and only one stolen base in 59 games played last season.
