Hicks went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's victory against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks has had a quiet season in New York, but has raised his batting average by 33 points since the start of August. His eight home runs and 30 RBI aren't far off from his numbers from a season ago, but Hicks has been an afterthought on the bases this season, stealing just three bases.

Hicks (groin) is back in the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays, Eric Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks was held out of action Sunday due to a groin issue, but it appears to be only minor, and he'll be back at his usual spot in right field Monday night. Hicks will bat eighth in the order against Toronto's J.A. Happ.

Hicks was unavailable for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays due to a groin injury, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the Yankees' previous three games, it was presumed Hicks was out of the lineup Sunday strictly for rest purposes, but it sounds as though he picked up the groin injury at some point during Saturday's contest. He's listed as day-to-day for now, but it's uncertain if he'll be available for Monday's series finale.

Hicks (hamstring) has been activated from the 15-day DL and is starting in right field and hitting second against the Rays on Tuesday, LoHud's Chad Jennings reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll come back into a favorable matchup against southpaw Drew Smyly on Tuesday, but he is unlikely to slot into the second spot in the order, or even be a regular in the lineup against righties going forward. Hicks has a .717 OPS against lefties and a .610 OPS against righties for his career.

Hicks headed out on a rehab assignment last week and was observed taking batting practice at the Yankees' training complex Monday. It's unclear when the team will officially bring him back, but he figures to see regular playing time down the stretch with Aaron Judge on the disabled list.

Hicks will begin a rehab assignment Thursday and may be activated next week, Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upon his eventual return, Hicks will add depth to the Yankees' outfield. With Aaron Judge on the disabled list, Hicks may see an increase in playing time. However, Hicks has struggled this season, as he owns a .213/.273/.330 line.

Hicks (right hamstring strain) was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to Sept. 1.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks wasn't originally considered to be a candidate for the disabled list, as the Yankees had plenty of roster spots following the Sept. 1 expansion. It looks like the team has changed their mind, however, and will place Hicks on the DL to free up one more spot. Hicks could be a candidate to rejoin the team for the season's final two weeks, though it remains a possibility the team shuts him down in an effort to give their younger outfielders additional opportunities.

Hicks has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain but will not be placed on the disabled list, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees do not need Hicks' roster spot with rosters expanding Sept. 1, but it sounds like he would have been a candidate for a disabled list stint at any other point this season, so it could be a few days before he is able to play again.

Hicks (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees will leave Hicks out Friday after he left Wednesday's contest with a tweaked hamstring. It's unclear if this will require just a few days off or a longer absence, but Aaron Judge figures to serve as the regular right fielder for the Yankees for the time being.
