Yankees’ Brian Cashman can see Aaron Hicks starting after ‘efforts’ to get outfielder

January 23, 2023 01:46AM
Aaron Hicks hasn’t had a productive season over a full year since 2018, but as of now, general manager Brian Cashman considers him to be the front-runner to be the regular left fielder this season — barring a trade or free-agent addition prior to Opening Day.

Cashman said Hicks is fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered during the postseason and they are hopeful he can find the form he showed before the Yankees signed him to what’s been an ill-fated seven-year, $70 million extension.

“I suspect he will be the guy that emerges [in left field] because he is still really talented and everything is there,” Cashman said Sunday on SiriusXM MLB Network Radio. “Hopefully we can get the Aaron Hicks we know is in there back as a consistent player for us.”

Oswaldo Cabrera is another candidate and Cashman once again mentioned Estevan Florial, but they are both unproven in the majors.
