Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks did not suffer a torn hamstring after leaving Monday's game, however manager Aaron Boone said Hicks would not play over the next couple of days.
"We feel like we dodged a bullet," Boone said, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
Hicks left Monday's game in the fourth inning with a tight hamstring, an injury that Hicks said he had endured for about three days prior. He said after the game he was "not too concerned" and felt he "should be good and ready to go" in a couple of days.
The 28-year-old Hicks is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays; Andrew McCutchen, Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge are in the outfield while Giancarlo Stanton is the designated hitter.
Hicks has a .247/.368/.465 batting line this season, playing in a career-high 134 games and hitting career-highs of 26 home runs and 76 RBIs.
