Hicks went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in the Yankees' 8-6 win over the Tigers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

After going 0-for-4 in his return from the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday, Hicks tallied a pair of homers against Detroit starter Mike Fiers, including an inside-the-park round-tripper on a deep fly ball that hit off the wall and bounced into no-man's land away from the Tigers' outfielders. He looks healthy, so feel free to plug Hicks back into your lineup as he looks to build on a 2017 season that saw him slash .266/.372/.475 in 301 at-bats.

Hicks will bat sixth and play center against the Tigers on Friday, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks was activated from the 10-day DL prior to Thursday's game, during which he went 0-for-4 with one strikeout while serving as the Yankees' designated hitter. He will slide back into his primary position of center field for Friday's series opener in Detroit, which allows Giancarlo Stanton to return to the DH spot.

Hicks (ribs) was activated from the disabled list and will act as the designated hitter for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Hicks will return to game action, but the Yankees will ease him back into the lineup by keeping him off the field Thursday. He should resume regular center field duties relatively soon.

Hicks (ribs) may be back with the Yankees on Thursday depending on his status following Wednesday's minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks has been on the disabled list with a right intercostal muscle strain since March 30, though he was able to finally hit the field with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. During that contest, he went 1-for-3 and will look to make it through a second-straight outing without experiencing any problems. Even though the Yankees outfield depth is extremely thin at the moment, it still seems unlikely that Hicks would be rushed back to play a third straight day during Thursday's finale in Boston instead of getting the night off and joining the team in Detroit.

Hicks (ribs) went 1-for-3 in his first minor-league rehab game at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees have two games remaining in their current three-game set with the Red Sox, and it's possible that Hicks will be cleared for activation from the DL by the end of the week when the team heads to Detroit for a weekend series with the Tigers.

Hicks (ribs) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks has been working his way back from a right intercostal muscle strain that he suffered during the season opener. The 28-year-old outfielder has been able to take batting practice in recent days with no issue, clearing the way for him to head out on a rehab assignment. If all goes well in his return to game action, Hicks could rejoin the Yankees sometime during their weekend series against the Tigers.

Hicks won't need more than the minimum amount of time on the disabled list, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hicks is scheduled to take 80 swings Wednesday. He headed to the disabled list Friday with a right intercostal muscle strain, but the injury was always reported to be minor, with Hicks himself thinking that a trip to the DL was unnecessary. He'll be eligible to return on April 10 and the team expects him to do so. In the meantime, the Yankees have something of an injury crisis in the outfield, with Hicks, Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique), Clint Frazier (concussion) and Billy McKinney (shoulder) all on the disabled list.

Hicks (intercostal) said that he was "feeling good" and was scheduled to hit off a tee and do some throwing Tuesday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears that Hicks may spent the minimum amount of time on the 10-day disabled list due the Grade 1 right intercostal muscle strain, which he sustained between his third and fourth at-bats Opening Day. He'll likely ramp up his activity a little more in the coming days, but if he reports no new soreness in his rib-cage area, Hicks should be plugged back in as the club's everyday center fielder beginning early next week. Hicks' impending return comes at a good time with three other center-field options -- Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique), Billy McKinney (shoulder) and Clint Frazier (concussion) -- all on the disabled list and further behind in their respective recoveries.

Hicks' right intercostal muscle strain is a minor Grade 1 strain, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team hasn't put a timeline on Hicks' return, but Hicks himself said that he didn't want to go on the disabled list and thought he could be back within a few days. The team is being cautious with the 28-year-old outfielder, who has a lengthy injury history. Billy McKinney has been called up to replace him, though Jacoby Ellsbury will be eligible to return from the disabled list on April 5.

Hicks was put on the 10-day disabled list due to a right intercostal muscle strain prior to Friday's game.

EDGE Analysis

It appears as though Hicks suffered the injury during Thursday's Opening Day contest against the Blue Jays, though he exhibited no sign of pain or discomfort at any point in the game, in which he went 2-for-4 from the plate. The club hasn't released any other information on his injury at this time but there will likely be an update on his status prior to Friday's affair. He will be eligible to return against Boston on April 10. In his place, the Yankees recalled Billy McKinney from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
