Injury Update: Hicks to Miss at Least 4-5 Games with Shoulder Injury

There's a possibility that Aaron Hicks shoulder injury will end up being more serious than was initially thought. An MRI Saturday revealed "traumatic bursitis" in his left shoulder, which he sustained attempting a diving catch in Friday night's loss to the Rays. The team still considers him day to day, with the hope that the inflammation will subside with some short rest.

 The best case scenario is that Hicks misses the next four to five games. After Saturday's win, he told reporters, "I’ll be down a couple of days. It all depends on how I feel.” The team can get by with a 24 man roster for a few days thanks to Dustin Ackley's versatility. The disabled list remains a distinct possibility, however. If the injury doesn't improve, New York will have to decide between Slade Heathcott, Ben Gamel, Nick Swisher, or even Rob Refsnyder as a replacement.
