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.

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.

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.

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.
Jun 10 - 1:10 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Aaron Hicks will remain in center field after Jacoby Ellsbury returns from his concussion.

There's been no indication that Ellsbury is close to returning, but when he does, he'll function as the Yankees' fourth outfielder. Hicks has played like a legitimate All-Star this year, batting .318 with 10 homers (with two coming in Friday's win over Baltimore), 34 RBI and seven steals. He needs to be owned and started in all formats.
Jun 9 - 11:19 PM

Aaron Hicks went 4-for-5 with three doubles, six RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.

Hicks' night would have been considered a success if he'd stopped after knocking a three-run double off Jays starter Marco Estrada in the first inning, but he was only getting started. He added RBI doubles in the seventh and ninth as well, and threw in a single for good measure. It was the latest installment in what has been a breakout year for the 27-year-old. After Thursday, Hicks is hitting .317/.437/.579 with eight homers, 30 RBI, 29 runs scored and seven stolen bases overall.
Jun 1 - 11:57 PM

Aaron Hicks went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Friday versus the Athletics.

Hicks scored the only run of the game for the Yankees after drawing a leadoff walk in the ninth. The 27-year-old has been excellent when called upon this season, batting .292/.429/.566 with eight home runs, 20 RBI, and six steals through 35 games. He’ll be a regular with Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) on the disabled list and and needs to be owned in most fantasy formats.
May 26 - 10:59 PM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk Wednesday in the Yankees' 11-7 win over the Royals.

Hicks should be playing regularly to see if all this is for real, but who do the Yankees sit? Even Jacoby Ellsbury has a .352 OBP and eight steals in nine tries. Brett Gardner is killing in. Matt Holliday has an .873 OPS. Hicks is at .326 with seven homers and more walks (22) than strikeouts (16) in 86 at-bats. Factoring in his defense, he's been about as effective as any AL player this year.
May 18 - 12:18 AM

Aaron Hicks finished 4-for-5 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

Hicks also stole a base for good measure. He's now 7-for-10 with two doubles, a homer, and two steals in the first two games of the series with the Cubs. The 27-year-old is having a bonkers start to the 2017 season, batting .355 with a 1.177 OPS, six homers, 15 RBI, 17 runs scored and four steals in 22 games.
May 6 - 11:11 PM

Aaron Hicks went 3-for-5 with a double as the Yankees topped the Cubs on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

Hicks also swiped his third base of the season in the contest. He has been hot at the dish through the first month-plus of the season, slashing .316/.444/.632 with five homers and 12 RBI while settling in as the number two hitter in the Bombers' lineup on most nights.
May 5 - 7:07 PM

Aaron Hicks knocked a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Hicks started the home run barrage off of Mat Latos with a two-run shot in the second inning. He also added a single later in the game. We've seen flashes of brilliance from Hicks in the past, but perhaps it's really clicking for him this time. In addition to a .300/.419/.640 batting line and five dingers, Hicks boasts an impressive 8/11 K/BB ratio.
May 2 - 10:59 PM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

He's now scored 10 runs in his last nine games and has 11 runs scored in 14 games this year. There isn't much he's done wrong at the dish this year, batting .324/.458/.703 with four homers, nine RBI and two stolen bases. The 27-year-old has been a disappointment for most of his MLB career but Yankees manager Joe Girardi may be figuring out how to best use him.
Apr 27 - 11:01 PM
