Yankees OF Aaron Hicks (wrist) is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Brett Gardner will handle centerfield duties and should see every day at-bats while Hicks is sidelined. Hicks slashed .194/.294/.333 with four home runs, 14 RBI, and 13 runs scored across 32 games in 2021.

Before the injury, Hicks slashed .194/.294/.333 across 126 plate appearances.
The Yankees officially placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 10-day IL due to a left wrist sprain.

This was hardly a surprise after Aaron Boone announced Hicks' injury on Friday, given that surgery was and still is an option, and with the Yankees needing healthy bodies with Giancarlo Stanton battling a quad injury.
