Aaron Hicks will start in center field for the Yankees in Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game against the Twins.

As expected, Chase Headley and Matt Holliday are on the bench. Hicks has the superior arm to Ellsbury, which could be a difference-maker in a close game. The full lineup for New York: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Gary Sanchez C, Didi Gregorius SS, Starlin Castro 2B, Greg Bird 1B, Aaron Hicks CF, Jacoby Ellsbury DH, Todd Frazier 3B. Luis Severino will get the ball for the home team.

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-3 and popped a two-run jack against the Rays on Wednesday.

His dinger off left-handed reliever Xavier Cedeno in the sixth inning was the third Yankee longball of the inning -- Starlin Castro and Greg Bird hit the first two. Hicks began spring training in a battle with Aaron Judge for the starting job in right field. We all know how that turned out but Hicks has hit well in his own right this season. He has a .268 batting average with an .848 OPS, 14 home runs and 51 RBI in just 84 games. That's much better than last year when he hit .217 with eight homers and 31 RBI in 123 games.

Aaron Hicks is in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

Hicks, fresh off missing most of September with an oblique strain, will bat leadoff in his return. Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner are both on the bench against lefty Blake Snell while Clint Frazier makes a start in left field.

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

Hicks has been sidelined for most of September with a strained left oblique, but he made it through some instructional league games without issue. He'll try to shake the rust with some at-bats over the final few days of the season.
Sep 26 - 10:59 AM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) will get some at-bats this week in the Yankees' instructional league.

Hicks flew out to Tampa on Wednesday morning to begin working in a live setting at the Yankees' spring training complex. If all goes well, he could be ready for activation from the disabled list sometime next week. The 27-year-old outfielder has been sidelined since September 2 due to a strained left oblique.
Sep 20 - 10:48 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that Aaron Hicks (oblique) has begun taking tee and toss in the indoor batting cage at Yankee Stadium.

The next step will be hitting on the field. Hicks suffered a left oblique strain in early September and dealt with strep throat last week, but the Yankees remain hopeful of getting him back before the regular season concludes.
Sep 18 - 9:34 AM

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

Hicks returned last month after missing six weeks with a right oblique strain, and he injured his other oblique Saturday. He could return late this month, but fantasy owners can't count on him the rest of the way.
Sep 3 - 12:47 PM

Aaron Hicks came out of Saturday's game because of tightness in his left oblique.

We started earlier that this could be related to the same injury that cost him six weeks before he returned Aug. 10. However, that strain was on the right side of his oblique. Hicks will undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity of this injury. Jacoby Ellsbury would be in line for additional at-bats if Hicks misses some time.
Sep 2 - 4:39 PM

Aaron Hicks was removed from Saturday's game against the Red Sox with an apparent injury.

Hicks made a nice defensive play to end the top of the sixth inning, but may have hurt himself in the process. He was replaced by Jacoby Ellsbury. We'll pass along any updates on his status as soon as more is known.
Sep 2 - 3:38 PM

Aaron Hicks went 4-for-4 with a run scored in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Hicks did his part to try to spark the Yankees offense, but the Indians rolled to a 9-4 victory nonetheless, sweeping the three-game set in the process. An oblique injury suffered in late June derailed what had been a breakout campaign for the outfielder and he has largely struggled to get back to his old ways since returning to action on August 10. For the campaign as a whole, Hicks is slashing .266/.370/.471 with 13 homers and 48 RBI over the course of 78 games played.
Aug 30 - 9:06 PM

Aaron Hicks went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in Monday’s loss to the Indians.

Hicks was enjoying a breakout year prior to suffering an oblique injury in late June, but he has struggled to get it going since coming off the disabled list. He’s batting just .167 (12-for-72) with three homers, three doubles, and 17 strikeouts through 17 games. We wouldn’t give up on him just yet in mixed fantasy leagues, as he finds himself in a great situation in this lineup and ballpark.
Aug 28 - 10:03 PM

Aaron Hicks hit a go-ahead solo homer in the bottom of the eighth inning Monday as the Yankees beat the Mets 4-2.

It was followed one batter later by a solo blast from Gary Sanchez. Hicks finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored in the game and is now batting .284/.389/.518 with 12 home runs, 40 RBI, eight stolen bases, and 44 runs scored over 65 total games this season. Remember when the Yankees acquired him from the Twins for John Ryan Murphy?
Aug 14 - 10:32 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 11:11 PM

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.
