Yankees' Aaron Hicks progressing in his rehab from Tommy John surgery

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks is currently taking dry swings and doing a throwing program, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

What It Means:

Hicks underwent Tommy John Surgery late in October after the Yankees were eliminated in the ALCS by the Houston Astros (Hicks played a pivotal role in forcing a Game 6). He began a throwing program in late March after Spring Training was canceled due to the coronavirus, and it seems as though he's on track to play at some point if the MLB returns, with Cashman calling him a "legit option" to man center field this summer.

In 59 games last season, Hicks hit for a .235/.325/.443 slash line 12 home runs and 36 RBI.
