Aaron Hicks hits DL as Yankees suddenly face outfield problem

The Yankees announced Friday they placed the centerfielder on the 10-day disabled list with a right intercostal muscle strain.

Another injury has taken place that Yankees fans may not be too fond of.

Brett Gardner, who started in left on Thursday, could shift to center and if the Yankees don't want to test Giancarlo Stanton in left, he could stay at DH and McKinney could play the outfield.

Center fielder Aaron Hicks was placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game with a right intercostal muscle strain.

It's unclear when Hicks suffered the injury. He was with the Yankees for the majority of Spring Training camp while showing off some of his pop and launching five home runs over 22 games.

Hicks, who was limited to just 88 games last season due to injury, went 2-for-4 on Opening Day against the Blue Jays, playing the entire game. He certainly has a ton of potential when it comes to his offense in the majors.

The switch-hitter entered spring as the presumed starter in centerfield and, though he hit just.200, nonetheless was never in danger of losing that status, especially with the early-spring injury to Jacoby Ellsbury.

Jacoby Ellsbury is now rehabbing from a right oblique strain that sidelined him for almost all of the spring.
