Prior to tonight’s series finale against the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees reinstated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the 10-day disabled list.
As a corresponding move, the Yankees designated outfielder Shane Robinson for assignment.
Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves:
• Returned OF Aaron Hicks from rehab and reinstated OF him from the 10-day disabled list.
• Designated OF Shane Robinson for assignment.
Hicks was placed on the disabled list with a right intercostal muscle strain on March 30 after going 2-for-4 with two strikeouts in a 6-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on March 29th. Since Hicks’ injury, the Yankees used Billy McKinney, Jace Peterson and Robinson in his absence. McKinney also suffered an injury during his brief stint with the Yankees.
Hicks recently completed a rehab assignment with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, collecting two hits including a double.
