MLB: Yankees looking for a new center fielder to fill in for Aaron Hicks

New York Yankees is looking to improve its roster for Season 2022 of MLB taking into account the elements they have on their roster and those available in the free agency market. According to reports, the Bronx organization has in mind the explore the market for center fielders as they would look to fill in for Aaron Hicks in this position.

Aaron Hicks and Brett Gardner were the center fielders the New York Yankees had in the 2022 campaign, but the latter went on to become a free agent, thus remaining only with Hicks.

This has led the Bronx organization to consider exploring new options to cover the central prairie and not relying on Hicks, who has not been consistent in his work.

“I think I need to explore center field as a possibility. If there are things that make sense to us it is that obviously Aaron (Hicks) has had a history of injuries in recent years,” said Brian Cashman.

Aaron Hicks suffered a wrist injury last May that required surgery and caused him to miss almost all of MLB 2021. He is currently playing winter baseball with the Leones del Escogido at LIDOM as part of attempts to get him to the point at Spring Training.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
