Aaron Hicks Admits ‘Horrible’ Season, Vows to Improve


Table of Contents

Aaron Hicks was unmoved by Boone’s comments. Hicks didn’t panic when the Yankees manager told him he was about to lose playing time.

Hicks hasn’t started five of the last six games, and he hasn’t started the last four in a row.

In his last 54 at-bats, he has only five hits (.093). He hasn’t hit a double or home run in 109 at-bats.

Overall, he’s only hitting .217 and has six home runs, 31 RBI, and an OPS+ of 87.

Boone wouldn’t say if he thought Hicks was a “starter” for the team right now.

After this season, Hicks’ contract extension still has three years and $30 million left on it.

Last year, he only played 32 games because he had surgery to fix a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist, which ended his season.

He said that this season he has been healthy.

Hicks was particularly harsh on himself on Monday, describing his performance as “extremely embarrassing” while speaking to reporters after making a poor read on a long fly ball during a loss to the Rays at home. This came after Hicks had made the error during the previous game. Friday came around, and he didn’t back down from that assessment at all.
