Hicks will remain in the lineup in left field Sunday against the Rays. He'll bat second in the order.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks has started 12 games in a row for the Yankees and seems to be finally catching fire, going 5-for-11 with two homers, four RBI, three runs and a stolen base over his last three appearances. Unfortunately, he's still sitting on a .203/.263/.329 batting line over 271 plate appearances on the season, and his outlook going forward doesn't appear promising. Hicks has been able to maintain his spot in the lineup the last two days thanks to Brett Gardner's ankle injury, but once Gardner returns, Hicks could be forced to settle for backup duties in the outfield. Aaron Judge, who was promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, looks in line to serve as the Yankees' everyday right fielder the rest of the way, joining Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury as regular starters in the outfield.

Hicks will start in right field and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

It's the sixth straight start for Hicks, who has been one of the main beneficiaries of the Aug. 1 trade that sent Carlos Beltran to the Rangers. Hicks should get a fair shake at a full-time role over the course of the final two months, but he may need to start producing in order to hold off Rob Refsnyder for duties in right field. Over 252 plate appearances this season, Hicks has slashed an awful .197/.259/.307.

Hicks is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest with Tampa Bay, Mark Feinsand of NY Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

After seeing six consecutive starts, Hicks will get a day off as Rob Refsnyder replaces him in right and bats ninth. Hicks continues to struggle at the plate as he's only collected seven hits in his last 20 games (.152 BA), lowering his season line to .189/.254/.291.

Hicks will start in right field and bat ninth in the lineup Sunday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Alex Rodriguez's offensive struggles this month have opened the door for more playing time for Hicks, who has typically entered the outfield mix whenever Carlos Beltran swaps in for Rodriguez at designated hitter. Though he'll be making his fourth start in five games, Hicks has yet to seize the opportunity, going 1-for-11 with a walk in the preceding three starts.

Hicks didn't start Thursday, but went 0-for-1 after replacing Rob Refsnyder in right field in the win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks had started 10 of the previous 11 games as the Yankees remained committed to getting the switch-hitter in the lineup against left-handed pitching, but he's been mired in a season-long slump. Hitting just .200 -- and only .155 against southpaws -- could spell more frequent days off going forward.

Hicks went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Friday's 5-3 victory over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old victimized his former team with his first homer of June. Hicks was considerably struggling at the plate heading into the month, but has now produced a .282/.300/.436 line since June 1. The improved play has boosted his average 25 points to .217, offering the Yankees some solid production from the latter half of the order.

Hicks went 0-for-3 Tuesday but drove in the team's only run in the loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The hitless showing dropped Hicks' average down to just .192, and after being added to the Yankees for his prowess against lefties, he's hitting just .159 against southpaws. He figures to continue seeing somewhat consistent playing time to give one of the regular starters a day off, but unless the numbers improve, there's not much going for Hicks from a fantasy perspective.

Hicks is out of the lineup for Wednesday night's game against Arizona, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks has started 10 of the last 11 games and so will get the night off with Jacoby Ellsbury getting the start in center field. The 26-year-old is emerging from a beginning-of-the-season-slump as he's raised his average from .067 to .211 over the last 14 games. It's tough to say if Hicks will be back in the lineup for Thursday's game against Oakland as the Yankees have the three-piece of Brett Gardner, Carlos Beltran, and Ellsbury that they could choose to go with again.

Hicks is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees are welcoming back Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) to the lineup after an eight-day absence, but his return won't necessarily result in Hicks getting phased out of the lineup over the next few days. Since Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) remains on the DL, Carlos Beltran is likely to serve as the team's regular DH, leaving Hicks and Dustin Ackley to vie for duties in right field. Though Ackley will receive the starting nod Sunday, Hicks is beginning to heat up with at least one hit in five of his last six games, and could ultimately claim the lion's share of the duties at the position.

Hicks will start in center field and bat leadoff Friday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

With Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) still sidelined and the Yankees facing a lefty in Chris Sale, Hicks will be afforded his first start atop the order as a member of the Yankees. Hicks got off to a poor start and is just 3-for-23 against southpaws so far this season, but he had an .870 OPS against lefties last year and has shown some signs of life recently, going 9-for-32 with a pair of homers to begin May.
