Yankees OF Aaron Hicks might not be fully ready to resume play whenever the MLB season returns, but he is definitely working hard to do so.
Hicks is recovering from Tommy John surgery, and manager Aaron Boone has said in his injury updates that Hicks continues to stay on track. Well, a video showed his progress, and Hicks looked to be in great shape as he took BP and showed off some conditioning workouts...

Even if the season did start on time, the Yankees would've had the depth to handle the loss of Hicks. But having that stellar arm in center field and that switch bat at the plate is a very valuable asset for New York.
Hicks was expected to be back near the All-Star break, so if the season does in fact kick off on or around July 1, there shouldn't be too many games with Hicks out of the lineup.
