Aaron Hicks’ role with Yankees suddenly cloudy

For the fourth time this season, Aaron Hicks was out of the Yankees lineup for a third straight game on Thursday night.

The first time, he was on paternity leave. The second time, he had a tight hamstring. The third time, he needed a few days off after fouling a ball off his shin.

This time, Hicks may have lost his grip on consistent playing time in the outfield.

After a brutal game on Monday night, both offensively and defensively, Hicks has yet to make another start. And with Wednesday’s call-up of center fielder Estevan Florial, who is expected to get at least semi-regular playing time, Hicks’ role has seemingly changed in the process as the latest turn in his disappointing season.
