The Yankees announced they have activated OF Aaron Hicks off the 10-day DL on Tuesday.
Hicks has been out for weeks with a strained left oblique that he injured at the beginning of the month. Hicks had just returned to the field in August after nursing a right oblique strain.
The 27-year-old was at the Yankees spring training facility in Tampa to get live at-bats in to see if he would be ready to return. He made it through the instructional games without any issues.
In 82 games this season, Hicks is hitting .265 with 13 homers and 48 RBI.
