Yankees activate Hicks off DL
Francona: Trade for Bruce gives Indians a boost.
The New York Yankees activated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the disabled list Thursday and placed rookie outfielder Clint Frazier on the 10-day DL with a left oblique strain.
Hicks (.290, 10 HRs, 37 RBIs in 60 games) sustained a right oblique strain June 25 and was on a rehab assignment in the minors. He was expected to return tonight against the Red Sox.
Frazier (.243, 4 HRs, 17 RBIs in 28 games) was injured in batting practice before Wednesday’s game with Toronto, and an MRI Thursday morning showed the injury.
Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks is hitting .290 this season.
