NYY News: Where the true problem lies?

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Why Hicks or Donaldson might not be the Yankees’ biggest problem; Former top prospect Frazier latches on with Rangers; Most interesting players to watch in the AL East for 2023 New York Post | Joel Sherman: The Yankees’ decision to roll with Aaron Hicks and Josh Donaldson as likely starters has understandably caused some consternation within the fan base. Sherman argues, however, that it’s pitching depth, not Hicks or JD, that should have fans truly worried. With Jordan Montgomery, and upper-minors arms Ken Waldichuk, Luis...

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Paul Blackburn

Photo by John McCoy/ Could New York use Cole Irvin’s recent trade to Baltimore as a framework to pursue his former teammate? February is only a few days away and the Yankees’ Opening Day lineup appears all but set. Reports suggest that the team will rely upon internal solutions to address the shakier areas of the roster — Aaron Hicks the favorite to start in left, Domingo Germán and Clarke Schmidt in competition to cover for Frankie Montas’ first month absence, Isiah Kiner-Falefa or Oswald Peraza at short — but that should not prevent the team from...

Now, we’ve heard it from the general manager as well. Brian Cashman said that the outfielder is fully recovered, and that it could be likely he will be the guy in left field instead of a younger player like Oswaldo Cabrera. The Yankees GM said that there have been calls...

NYY News: Boone on the LF situation

NJ.com | Randy Miller: While appearing on the YES Network, Yankees’ manager Aaron Boone was, not surprisingly, non-committal on the projected starter in left field. Aaron Hicks and Oswaldo Cabrera are the two leading candidates currently on the roster, but after the other moves from earlier this season, it’s also the position the Yankees have been most rumored to address. Sports Illustrated | Max Goodman: Boone was similarly...

Next-Best Yankees Playoff Games: Hicks, Paxton keep season alive

Photo by Alex Trautwig/MLB Photos via James Paxton outduels Justin Verlander and Aaron Hicks launches a first-inning bomb to lead Yankees past Houston. A common theme throughout this series has been that a Yankees series loss doesn’t negate the great victories that occurred along the way. Everybody knows Derek Jeter’s Mr. November moment, and the comeback in Game 4 of the 2017 ALCS announced the arrival of the Baby Bombers era (even if the era didn’t quite go as planned, it was still fun). A series loss does put a damper on things, but those moments still shine...

Aaron Hicks is not the best case scenario in left field for New York Yankees fans. It is easy to see why that would be the case.

In the aftermath of coming to an agreement on a $2.3 million salary for 2023, Nestor Cortes made it clear how much he appreciates what his parents did to enable him to reach this point.

However, it’s starting to become a more likely option.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Nick Gordon

Photo by David Berding/ Could the Yankees capitalize on the Twins’ surplus of corner outfielders? A week into the new year and the Yankees’ search for a left fielder continues. Reports indicate that they are more than happy to enter the 2023 season allowing their internal options — Oswaldo Cabrera and Aaron Hicks — to combine to man the position. However, that does not mean they should give up on trying to improve the position, especially with the news Dan Hayes and Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic broke concerning the Twins’ willingness to trade a corner...
