The latest Aaron Hicks MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury sitting vs. Twins

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:25:38 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in center field and batting eighth against SP Tommy Milone Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury is a viable starter in the majority of seasonal leagues, but his stat line (30 runs, three home runs, 24 RBI, 12 stolen bases and .278/.339/.406 slash line) highlight his decline from fantasy stardom. Hicks has some upside, but he is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups. However, he might be a sneaky low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury on bench Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:53:46 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 21, against the Colorado Rockies. OF Aaron Hicks replaces Ellsbury in center and will bat eighth against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury is getting his first day off in two weeks, so he may be available for pinch-hit duties. Hicks is 5-for-14 (.357) in the last week but may have muted fantasy value because of his position in the lineup.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann out Friday

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:12:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins left-handed SP Pat Dean Friday, June 17. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and hitting ninth, while C Austin Romine is doing the catching and batting eighth. Also, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at first base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: All three are low-end daily options that don't have much appeal, but Refsnyder is the most attractive as a deep sleeper because of his position high in the batting order.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran remains out

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:05:08 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (knee) is out of the starting lineup again Wednesday, June 15. OF Aaron Hicks is in right field and is hitting sixth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran's knee injury isn't believed to be serious, but at his age it's certainly worth watching. Hicks had two hits in a start last night but is hitting a weak .213 on the season with only two home runs and 12 RBI. He could be a deep sleeper taking hacks at hitter-friendly Coors Field today, though.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran sitting vs. southpaw

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:58:19 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Tuesday, June 14. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in right field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Looks like a normal day off for Beltran, who has been very hot at the dish. Hicks has done very little for fantasy owners this year with a .205/.265/.311 slash line and two homers and 12 RBI. He's purely depth for your outfield in AL-only leagues and is a weak daily pick.

Yankees | Brian McCann, Alex Rodriguez out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:33:29 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and DH Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Sunday, June 12. OF Carlos Beltran is batting third and serving as the designated hitter, C Austin Romine will start behind the plate and bat seventh and OF Aaron Hicks will play right field and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Romine has not been known for his offense historically but he has two homers and 11 RBI in 69 at-bats this year, to go with a .290 average, so he could be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Hicks is batting just .203 over 118 at-bats and is not a great fantasy option today.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:09:07 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, June 7, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Aaron Hicks is in center and will bat ninth against Angels SP David Huff.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury gets a night off because of the lefty vs. lefty matchup, so Hicks will fill in. Hicks has flirted with the Mendoza line all season long and carries little fantasy value, so look elsewhere.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran on the bench

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:28:29 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Sunday, June 5. OF Aaron Hicks will start in right field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks has three hits and two RBI over his last three games but is hitting only .202 this season. He should have some value in AL-only leagues, but owners in daily fantasy leagues probably will be able to find better candidates to use.

Yankees | Three regulars sitting for Yanks

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 14:21:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (rest), C Brian McCann (rest) and SS Didi Gregorius (rest) are not in the lineup Thursday, June 2, against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd. OF Aaron Hicks is getting a start in center field and batting ninth, C Austin Romine is behind the plate and hitting seventh, while 2B Rob Refsnyder is entering the lineup in the No. 8 hole with 2B Starlin Castro taking over shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: It's not much of a surprise to see the Yankees sitting some of their regulars, as this was supposed to be a day off for the club. Instead, they're making up a game that was rained out in April. Either way, none of the replacements inserted into the lineup for tonight's contest deserve any consideration for daily fantasy games. The three starters sitting should be back Friday.

Yankees | Brett Gardner not starting Tuesday

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:25:14 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Toronto Blue Jays. OF Aaron Hicks will start and bat ninth against Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner is out due to the traditional lefty vs. lefty matchup, so bench him accordingly for the evening. Hicks carries no fantasy value due to his weak bat (.133 average in the past week).
