Aaron Hicks designated for assignment to end disappointing Yankees tenure

The Yankees have finally decided to eat the money and cut Aaron Hicks.

The veteran outfielder was designated for assignment Saturday, he told The Post, as the Yankees opened a roster spot for Greg Allen.

Hicks still had three years and nearly $30 million left on his contract.

In 28 games this season, Hicks hit .188 with a .524 OPS.

Yankees’ Aaron Boone addresses Aaron Hicks’ role after veteran says he has ‘no idea’ what it is

New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed on Monday that outfielder Aaron Hicks has expressed frustration to him about his heretofore limited role. The switch-hitting Hicks will be making his first start of the season on Monday night, batting seventh and playing left field when the Yankees take on the Philadelphia Phillies. He had appeared in just one of the Yankees’ first three games, receiving a pinch-hit at-bat in Saturday’s loss.

Boone claimed that he’s had conversations with Hicks about his role dating back to spring training, and noted that he tries to be transparent with what he’s thinking and what matchups he’s eyeing. He added that the Yankees’ shifting roster—they’ve added two players from outside the organization to their active roster in the last week, in outfielder Franchy Cordero and pitcher Colten Brewer—have and will continue to alter the playing-time dynamic.

“The role can revolve and change,” Boone said during his pregame media session. “The biggest thing is I want him to be ready for every opportunity.”

Boone’s comments come a day after Hicks publicly expressed ignorance about his purpose on the Yankees roster. “I have no idea what my role is,” he told Brendan Kuty of The Athletic on Sunday. “It’s kind of uncertain.”
