New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks began his pre-MLB rehab.
Player Aaron Hicks was cleared to start a pitching program, manager Aaron Boone told reporters Wednesday, Boone did not provide an additional timeline for Hicks.
It is a very important step in the recovery of the 30-year-old from the Tommy John surgery that was done in October last year in MLB.
Everyone expected Aaron Hicks to be lost in 8-10 months, but he may be back earlier than expected, thanks to the course of his recovery.

Aaron Hicks in July 2016, in his first years with the Yankees, took a grounder in left field from where he took a great shot at 105 MPH to put the runner out at the plate, being the fastest shot recorded in the history of MLB.
Here the video:
Hicks signed a 7-year deal for $ 70 million in the 2018 offseason, claiming to play for the Yankees for a long time, perhaps the bronx mules took into account the production of the hicks bat, not forgetting his fantasies with his glove in MLB.
Hicks hit 27 home runs with 79 RBIs in 2018, with a 246 batting average, something that further propelled the Yankees to give him that extension in the MLB.
