Aaron Hicks exited Friday night’s game against the Rays after diving for a ball in the fourth inning. The Yankees are saying he’s been diagnosed with a sore left-shoulder, and will be listed as day-to-day. Jacoby Ellsbury took his place in centerfield for the top of the fifth.
Hicks, who was shaded towards right field, came in charging a Brandon Guyer pop fly. The ball just missed his outstretched glove and was fielded by Brett Gardner who was backing up. Hicks took a few seconds to get up off the ground, but was able to finish the half-inning.
