Hicks (Achilles) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, batting second and playing center field.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks missed the past three games with Achilles soreness, but everything seems to be back in working order once again. Prior to getting hurt, the 27-year-old outfielder was hitting very well in the month of June, posting a .322 batting average with nine doubles and 12 RBI. He'll displace Mason Williams in the starting lineup and reclaim his position in the upper-third of the batting order.

Hicks (Achilles) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder will hit the bench for a third straight game while he continues to deal with Achilles soreness, an injury that forced him out late in Thursday's series opener. Mason Williams has been serving as Hicks' replacement in center field and has supplied two hits in seven at-bats over the last two games. Williams would presumably be in store for a full-time role this week if Hicks' injury ends up forcing him to the disabled list, but the Yankees will likely wait until Tuesday's game against the Angels before making a call on Hicks' status.

Hicks (Achilles) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Athletics, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the second game in a row Hicks will watch from the bench as a result of the Achilles injury he incurred Thursday evening. No further word has emerged as to how close he is to returning, so consider him day-to-day for the time being. Mason Williams will once again man center field in his place.

Hicks (Achilles) is not in the lineup Friday against the Athletics, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Hicks will retreat to the bench for a night off after leaving Thursday's game with Achilles soreness. Mason Williams will take over in center field while he's sidelined.

Hicks is reportedly dealing with Achilles soreness, Randy Miller of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN also reports that Mason Williams is heading to Oakland to meet the team prior to Friday's contest, making it seem like Hicks isn't available for the game. No word on the severity has been disclosed at this time, so the switch hitting outfielder should be considered day-to-day for the time being. A DL stint very well could be in play since Williams is already on his way to join the team, but an official move has yet to be made.

Hicks did not come out to the field for the ninth inning of Thursday's game in Oakland, a contest that eventually went into extra innings.

EDGE Analysis

There's no word yet as to the nature of the issue and there was no specific play immediately preceding his departure, though Hicks did crash hard into the outfield wall earlier in the contest. The Yankees apparently could be facing some lineup issues after also losing Gary Sanchez following a collision with Oakland's Chad Pinder.

Hicks drove in three runs and finished 2-for-5 with two runs scored against the Orioles on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

With Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) out indefinitely, Hicks is evolving into a solid outfield fantasy option. His current slash line .318/.426/.584 is salacious and he's expected to see plenty of action atop the Yankees' order, at least for the time being.

Hicks went 2-for-5 with two home runs in Friday's win over the Orioles. Hicks will keep the starting center field job when Jacoby Ellsbury returns from a concussion, manager Joe Girardi told the New York Daily News. "He's going to play a lot. That's the bottom line, when (Ellsbury) comes back," Girardi said.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like Ellsbury will move to a fourth outfielder role as a result. Hicks' surprisingly start to the season hasn't seen any signs of slowing down as he's hitting .393 in June.

Hicks smacked four hits Thursday, including three doubles, in the Yankee's 9-2 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks' big night comes on the heels of a hot week in place of Jacoby Ellsbury, who is currently on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion. He is now 12-for-30 in his last nine games, and it will be interesting to see if the Yankees decide to officially make Hicks a full-time member of the outfield, although he played the majority of games in May.

Hicks will bat second and man center field in Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

With Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) still experiencing symptoms and on the disabled list, Hicks will make his sixth consecutive start. He's typically served as the Yankees' seventh hitter, but with backstop Gary Sanchez receiving the day off, Hicks will move up five spots in the order. Hicks could carry some intrigue in DFS contests Wednesday with struggling right-hander Kevin Gausman taking the hill for the home team.
