Aaron Hicks To Start Rehab Assignment In Triple-A On Wednesday

It was reported yesterday by NJ.com’s Brendan Kuty that New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks will begin his rehab assignment in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starting Wednesday.

Hicks suffered a right oblique injury back at the end of June against the Texas Rangers. This happening right before Yankees’ center-fielder Jacoby Ellsbury returned from the DL. Luckily, the Yankees have had Clint Frazier fill in nicely while Hicks was injured, and had an outfield of Aaron Judge, Brett Gardner, Ellsbury, and Frazier as their main guys. Hicks was having a great year despite this not being his first trip to the DL in 2017. He’s batting .290 and has 10 home-runs in his 200 at-bats this season. He’s also been the defensive-stud Yankees universe saw last season.

With the team’s recent success, regaining the lead in the AL East, Hicks will be joining a hot lineup, with a new rotation and bullpen. There is no final decision on this will push Clint Frazier back to Triple-A, but it’ll be a tough decision if that is what happens. If Hicks can give the same support he was before his injury it should help with Matt Holliday‘s, and Aaron Judge’s slowed pace since the second half. If everything goes as planned Hicks will be back by the Yankees’ next homestand after they take road-trips to Cleveland and Toronto. That homestand will be a vital three game series against the Boston Red Sox.
