Aaron Hicks News
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks (shin) remains out of the starting lineup on Friday against the division-rival Boston Red Sox. Hicks has been sidelined since he fouled a ball off his right shin on Tuesday. He was able to take batting practice on the field before Friday's contest, though, so there's a chance he'll return to the starting lineup this weekend. Joey Gallo will play left field and hit ninth against Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi. Gallo will be a boom/bust DFS play on Friday in the nine-hole. He's mostly been bust in 2022, hitting a pathetic .164/.290/.332 with 10 home runs, 21 RBI, 29 runs scored and two stolen bases in 214 at-bats for the Yankees.
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks (shin) is set to undergo a CT scan on his right shin on Wednesday. The 32-year-old fouled a ball off his shin during Tuesday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. He was removed from the game and helped off the field after the incident. X-rays following the injury were negative, but the team wants to Hicks to undergo a CT scan to determine if the injury is anything more than a shin contusion. The injury comes at a rough time for Hicks as he's been heating up in July. Over nine games this month, he's slashed .370/.485/.889 with three home runs, three doubles, two stolen bases, eight RBI and 10 runs.
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against right-hander Luis Garcia and the Houston Astros. Aaron Judge, Joey Gallo and Giancarlo Stanton will be covering the outfield for the game. Hicks has been scuffling at the plate lately, recording just one hit over his last 18 at-bats. The 32-year-old has appeared in 66 games this year and he's slashing .218/.338/.284 with three home runs, seven stolen bases, 18 RBI and 24 runs. He should remain on waivers in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.
Staying healthy has always been a concern for Hicks, so it was actually encouraging to see him play in 54 games in 2020, but he had to make some swing adjustments from the lingering effects of Tommy John surgery. The strikeout rate zoomed to 19.4% and he hit just .225. His Launch Angle was lowered to 6.9. But he was still strong from an on-base perspective with a .379 OBP and his BB% pf 19.4 was among the very best in the league. Hicks' xBA was a more respectable .257. His Exit Velocity of 88.2 was pretty much in line with his norms. Hicks will occupy a key spot in the top half of the Yankees lineup and you can likely expect a return back to the type of numbers where you are getting double figures in steals and homers and hopefully a BA that won't be a drag on your overall team average. If you are more dependent on the OBP production he should continue to be a decent depth outfielder for you. Hicks' ADP reflects that you cannot expect much upside and you will always be concerned about his availability. How much you want him for a final outfield spot will be tied to your league scoring rules. Standard 5 x 5 roto managers are less likely to be enticed by Hicks.
