Aaron Hicks blasted a two-run homer in a come-from-behind 5-4 victory against the Red Sox on Friday.

His two-run shot off of Addison Reed got the Bombers on the board in the eighth inning, igniting a five-run rally. Hicks also doubled, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been outstanding this season, slashing .287/.392/.522 with 11 homers and 39 RBI.

Aaron Hicks (oblique) went 0-for-5 in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Hicks' Yankees teammates also struggled to get anything going against Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada, getting shut out by the right-hander and his mates, so Hicks' struggles were just a microcosm. It's to be expected after missing six weeks due to a strained right oblique. The 27-year-old was putting together a breakout year at the time of the injury, and fantasy owners hope he'll pick up where he left off with his .283/.390/.502 line before hitting the shelf.
Aug 11 - 12:19 AM

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

Hicks wound up missing six weeks with a right oblique strain. The 27-year-old outfielder hit the ball well on his minor league rehab assignment and returns Thursday to an impressive .290/.398/.515 season slash line. Clint Frazier (oblique) has been placed on the disabled list in a corresponding roster move.
Aug 10 - 11:55 AM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Hicks will be coming back just in time for this weekend's series against the Red Sox. He has been scalding the ball to the tune of a .375/.444/.625 triple-slash in minor league rehab games. The outfielder has been on the shelf since June 26 due to a right oblique strain. Clint Frazier could potentially be sent down when Hicks returns.
Aug 9 - 5:27 PM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) appears on track to return from the disabled list this weekend.

Hicks is batting .375/.444/.625 with two doubles and a triple through five rehab games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The 27-year-old outfielder has been sidelined since June 26 with a right oblique strain. His activation could push Clint Frazier back to the minor leagues.
Aug 8 - 5:24 PM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment after the Yankees conclude their current homestand.

New York's nine-game homestand will wrap up next Wednesday, at which point Hicks and Tyler Austin (hamstring) will both set out on rehab assignments. A strained oblique has sidelined Hicks since late June. New York's outfield is crowded right now with Aaron Judge, Brett Gardner, Clint Frazier and Jacoby Ellsbury all serving important roles. But if Hicks hits like he did before his injury (.290, 10 HR, 37 RBI, seven steals in 200 at-bats), the Yankees will find a spot for him.
Jul 27 - 4:15 PM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) is expected to resume hitting in the cage on Wednesday.

Hicks has now been sidelined for about a month with a right oblique strain. There's no clear target for rehab games yet, so he's still likely a couple of weeks away.
Jul 25 - 3:45 PM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) isn't expected to resume baseball activities until at least July 25.

This would be after the Yankees complete an 11-game roadtrip to begin the second half. Hicks was originally expected to miss 3-4 weeks with his oblique injury, but it appears that the timetable will ultimately be longer.
Jul 10 - 9:25 AM

Yankees placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique injury.

Hicks suffered the injury during Sunday's game and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. It's a shame, as the 27-year-old has enjoyed an excellent first half. Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) has been activated from the disabled list to take his place on the active roster.
Jun 26 - 12:27 PM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) will be placed on the disabled list on Monday and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

Hicks sustained the oblique injury during Sunday's game against the Rangers. No word yet on what the corresponding move will be, but there's a chance that Jacoby Ellsbury will be activated from the disabled list.
Jun 25 - 11:24 PM

Aaron Hicks was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Rangers due to right oblique tightness.

Hicks is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. This comes on the heels of the outfielder missing a few games due to a sore Achilles. It sounds like it could lead to a trip to the disabled list, but more will be known on Monday.
Jun 25 - 4:23 PM

Aaron Hicks (Achilles) is back in the Yankees' lineup Tuesday.

Hicks missed a few games with a sore Achilles, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Tuesday. He's in center field and batting second against Parker Bridwell and the Angels.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Hicks is back in the lineup and given the level he's performed at this year, he's a little under-priced across the industry. Parker Bridwell is well worth picking on in Yankee Stadium, especially considering the Yankees are the top offense in baseball against RHP (124 wRC+ leads the league). Hicks himself owns a solid 158 wRC+ and .246 ISO, and his lineup spot couldn't be any better between Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge. Fire up the Yankees confidently this evening.
Jun 20 - 3:33 PM

Following Thursday's loss to the A's, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Aaron Hicks is dealing with an Achilles injury.

That would explain why Hicks was replaced in the field by Rob Refsnyder late in the contest. Girardi does not believe the Achilles issue is a serious one for his outfielder, but more should be known when he is reevaluated on Thursday.
Jun 16 - 3:10 AM

Aaron Hicks hit two homers and knocked in three runs Friday as the Yankees drubbed the Orioles 8-2.

Jacoby who? Hicks overtook his previous career high with his 34th RBI tonight. Those have come in 153 at-bats. He'd have seasons of 352, 327 and 281 at-bats, but he had never topped 33 RBI. He's one off his high of 11 homers. He also currently has a 31/30 K/BB ratio after coming in at 68/30 last year.
