Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks is expected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing wrist surgery, manager Aaron Boone said Thursday.
According to Boone, HIcks’ recovery could extend into the offseason.
Hicks was placed on the injured list on May 15 after suffering a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist.
Hicks hasn’t played since May 12 against the Tampa Bay Rays, and was in the lineup for the Yankees’ game on May 13 before becoming a late scratch.
In 32 games this season, the 31-year-old veteran was slashing just .194/.294/.333 with four home runs and 14 RBI. Hicks’ best season in pinstripes came in 2018 when he batted .248 with 27 home runs and 79 RBI in 137 games.
