Aaron Hicks went 2-for-4 with a solo inside-the-park home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Royals.
We've seen this inside-the-park trick from Hicks before, as he sprinted around for one following a weird carom on a deep hit to center versus the Tigers last month. In Saturday's incarnation of the feat, Hicks pulled the ball down the line off Danny Duffy leading off the top of the third inning. Right fielder Jorge Soler tracked it toward the foul pole and timed his leap as the ball bounced off the top of the wall and back into the field of play. Soler fell over and without an outfielder backing the play up, it was the rare obvious inside-the-park home run. Hicks hit home standing up. In doing so, he became the first Yankee since 1958 to notch multiple inside-the-park homers in a season. Mickey Mantle had three of them that year. May 19 - 10:35 PM

Aaron Hicks went 3-for-4 with a run scored Friday against the Royals.

All three hits were singles, but fantasy owners will take it. Hicks came into Friday’s action with just two hits over his previous six games. The 28-year-old has missed time with injury this year while disappointing with a .230/.333/.380 batting line over 29 games, but he still has a lot going in his favor from a fantasy perspective.
May 18 - 11:34 PM

Aaron Hicks is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Thursday evening against the Red Sox.

Brett Gardner is in center field, Giancarlo Stanton is in left field, and Miguel Andujar is at DH with the Red Sox throwing left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez. Ronald Torreyes will get the start at third base.
May 10 - 3:25 PM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers and three RBI on Friday, powering the Yankees in an 8-6 victory over the Tigers.

Hicks got the Yankees on the board in the second inning with a two-run inside-the-park home run that center fielder Leonys Martin took a curious route on. He then clobbered a solo homer in the sixth to run the Bombers' advantage to 6-1. He has hit the ground running in his return from the disabled list, paying immediate dividends to fantasy owners who held tight. He's now slashing .364/.462/.909 in his first 13 plate appearances.
Apr 13 - 10:54 PM

Yankees activated OF Aaron Hicks from the 10-day disabled list.

Hicks will start at DH and bat sixth Thursday night against Red Sox right-hander Rick Porcello after missing a little under two weeks with an intercostal strain. He went 2-for-4 on Opening Day against the Blue Jays before landing on the disabled list the next morning.
Apr 12 - 3:47 PM

Aaron Hicks (intercostal) could rejoin the Yankees on Friday depending on how his rehab with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre goes.

Hicks was placed on the disabled list on March 30 with the intercostal strain. Once he returns, he should resume being the everyday center fielder for the Yankees, and hit somewhere in the middle of the lineup.
Apr 11 - 5:09 PM

Aaron Hicks (intercostal) will play five innings Tuesday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Hicks, who is working his way back from an intercostal strain, is slated to play nine innings on Wednesday before rejoining the Yankees on Thursday. He should return as the primary center fielder.
Apr 10 - 7:37 PM

The Yankees' are hopeful that Aaron Hicks will be able to return from the disabled list early next week.

Hicks has continued to ramp up activity and hasn't experienced any abnormal discomfort. He'll resume his role as the Yankees' regular center fielder upon his return.
Apr 7 - 1:16 PM

Aaron Hicks (intercostal) is scheduled to take around 80 swings on Wednesday.

Hicks hit off a tee and played catch Tuesday without any abnormal discomfort and it sounds like he'll be ready to come off the 10-day disabled list as soon as he is eligible early next week. The 28-year-old projects to serve as the Yankees' primary center fielder this season and carries a good amount of fantasy upside after tallying 15 home runs and 10 stolen bases in just 88 games last year, alongside an .847 OPS. He went 2-for-4 on Opening Day against the Blue Jays before landing on the DL the next morning.
Apr 4 - 11:11 AM

Aaron Hicks (intercostal) is scheduled to hit off a tee and do some throwing on Tuesday.

Hicks landed on the disabled list Friday with an intercostal muscle strain, but he said Tuesday that he no longer feels any pain. The Yankees are going to be cautious with this sort of injury, but it sounds like he could be back around when he's first eligible next week.
Apr 3 - 1:05 PM

Yankees placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 10-day disabled list with an Intercostal muscle strain.

Hicks was in the starting lineup on Thursday, and there were no reports of an injury after their opener against the Blue Jays. The Yankees will call up Billy McKinney to take Hicks' place on the roster. We'll update with more on Hicks when we have more information on the severity, but he'll be out at least ten days with the rib injury.
Mar 30 - 12:42 PM

Aaron Hicks will bat fifth for the Yankees on Opening Day against the Blue Jays.

That was probably going to be Greg Bird's lineup spot, but he needed surgery Tuesday on his right ankle and will be sidelined 6-8 weeks. Hicks tallied 15 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 88 games last year alongside an .847 OPS and could carry big-time fantasy value in 2018. The full Opening Day lineup for the Yankees, who will go up against Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ on Thursday afternoon in Toronto: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Giancarlo Stanton DH, Gary Sanchez C, Aaron Hicks CF, Didi Gregorius SS, Brandon Drury 3B, Neil Walker 2B, Tyler Austin 1B.
Mar 28 - 3:00 PM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-3 and drilled a solo home run in a win over the Braves on Saturday.

He went yard off starter Julio Teheran in the fourth inning, then added a double off Scott Kazmir. It was a rare sign of life for Hicks in what has been a very poor showing throughout the spring. Luckily for him he has no competition for the starting job in center field with Jacoby Ellsbury injured. Hicks could put up some big numbers in a loaded Yankee lineup once he gets his swing back in regular-season form.
Mar 24 - 6:33 PM

Aaron Hicks went 0-for-3 on Friday, dropping his spring average to .186.

Jacoby Ellsbury has been hurt, so there's been no pressure applied to Hicks this month. Center field should be his for the long haul anyway. Still, some signs of power would be nice; he has two extra-base hits in 43 at-bats.
Mar 23 - 5:13 PM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-2 with a walk and an RBI as the Yankees topped the Tigers 7-2 on Tuesday.

Some would like to see Hicks atop the Yankees order after he posted a .372 OBP last year -- bettering Brett Gardner's mark of .348 -- but it's not going to happen initially and it appears that the Yankees would prefer to have one of their sluggers hit second. Hicks should be useful in mixed leagues anyway, but he won't have as much upside hitting seventh as he would batting first or second.
