Aaron Hicks left tonight’s game in the ninth inning after suffering a right-hamstring strain, according to Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network. He injured it while running hard down to first base on a groundball, and was replaced by Aaron Judge in right field the following inning.
With rosters expanding tomorrow, coupled with the fact that the organization is extremely deep at the outfield position, the Yankees should be able to fill the fourth outfield spot with ease. Mason Williams is a possibility, along with super-utility man Rob Refsnyder.
Hicks hasn’t played well this season, but has turned it on over the last month. He’s hitting .291/.333/.456 in August. Stay tuned for more updates from Joe Girardi and the Yankees following tonight’s game.
