Aaron Hicks (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list early next week.

Hicks has been sidelined since the end of August with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain. There was some thought that the injury might end his season, but the 26-year-old outfielder is making steady progress on the side. He'll return to a disappointing .603 OPS.

Yankees placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Aaron Hicks has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain.

Hicks suffered the injury on Wednesday. He'd be placed on the disabled list if it weren't September. Needless to say, Hicks won't be available for a while.

Aaron Hicks has been diagnosed with a right hamstring strain.

Hicks suffered the injury while legging out a groundball in the ninth inning of Wednesday's extra-innings marathon against the Royals. He won't be placed on the disabled list because major league rosters have expanded, but the utility outfielder is probably going to be unavailable for at least the next two weeks.

Aaron Hicks appeared to suffer a leg injury while running out a ground ball in the ninth inning of Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Hicks started out of the box just fine on the ninth-inning grounder, but noticeably slowed up midway down the line. He then walked gingerly back to dugout. Aaron Judge replaced him in right field to start the bottom of the frame. Hicks will be reevaluated on Thursday. Based on his immediate reaction, this might be more than a day-to-day situation.

Aaron Hicks homered off Rick Porcello in the top of the seventh to help push the Yankees over the Red Sox 3-2 on Friday.

It was Hicks' first homer as a member of the Yankees. It seemed like his first hit as well, but apparently it was his fourth. He's looking at a lot more playing time now with Alex Rodriguez on the DL and perhaps Jacoby Ellsbury out for a few days. Still, he doesn't seem like a mixed-league option at the moment.

Aaron Hicks is in the lineup and playing right field for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

Hicks is hitting seventh, while Carlos Beltran earns himself a half-day in the DH slot. With Alex Rodriguez hitting the disabled list due to a bum hamstring, it would not be a surprise if Hicks sees additional playing time in the immediate future. Manager Joe Girardi figures to be looking for any spark that could help fill that offensive void for the slumbering Yankees.

Aaron Hicks (shoulder) grounded out as a pinch-hitter and remained in the game in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

It was Hicks' first plate appearance since April 22, as he's been battling bursitis in his left shoulder. The shoulder issue probably isn't behind him, but Hicks could start seeing starts against lefties again.

Aaron Hicks (shoulder) served as a pinch-runner on Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Hicks took over at first base for Alex Rodriguez after A-Rod smacked a one-out single to right off Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson, but Brian McCann and Starlin Castro both promptly hit into groundouts. Hicks has been absent from the Yankees' starting lineup for close to a week now due to traumatic bursitis in his left shoulder. He is still considered day-to-day.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated that Aaron Hicks (shoulder) will be available to pinch-hit against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Hicks hurt his left shoulder on an attempted catch during Friday's game against the Rays. A subsequent MRI revealed traumatic bursitis, which sounds frightening enough. It appears he has avoided a stint on the disabled list for the time being, though.

Aaron Hicks' MRI revealed traumatic bursitis in his left shoulder.

He hurt himself diving for a ball in center field Friday against Tampa Bay. Hicks was given a cortisone shot and won't resume baseball activities for at least 4-5 days. He could be headed to the disabled list. Hicks has played phenomenal defense this year but has really struggled at the plate (just two hits in 22 at-bats).
