Hicks signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Yankees on January 11, 2019. The one-year contract was replaced with a seven-year, $70 million agreement signed by Hicks on February 25.
One million dollars in buyouts and two million dollars in signing bonuses are included in the arrangement. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain at the start of the new year.
Tampa Tarpons sent him on a rehab assignment on May 6th. Hicks’ home run on June 24 against the Blue Jays was the 27th in a row the Yankees have hit a home run, tying a franchise record.
The Red Sox-Yankees 2019 London Series began on June 29th, and it was Hicks’ first home run in Europe as an MLB player. He was taken out of the game on September 10 with an elbow injury.
It has been revealed that Hicks has been suffering from an elbow injury since August 3, and Tommy John surgery will be required to fix the issue. As a result of Hicks’ elbow injury, New York Yankees designated him for the rest of the season.
When asked by a reporter from the New York Post if he would be included in the ALCS roster, Hicks confirmed that he would be.
As of the next day, the Yankees announced that Hicks had been reinstated off the 60-day injured list and had been added to the roster in place of fellow outfielder Luke Voit.
He said that he had decided not to have surgery immediately following Tommy John’s advice, and instead engaged in light physical activity. He returned to the Yankees’ spring training facility a week later to continue working on his elbow.
Having worked out regularly for a few weeks, it was determined that he would not need surgery and he was able to join his team in Houston, Texas. In the end, he had surgery and was anticipated to be out of commission for 8–10 months.
