Aaron Hicks

Out with a right flexor strain, Aaron Boone said that Aaron Hicks still won’t throw for another week. However, progress can move quickly after he starts throwing. Boone has said, “He feels normal. He feels good. Again, it’s something we’re trying for, being conservative with because of the close proximity of the UCL, but he’s been responding well to all of his therapy.”

With no major setbacks and all progress with his rehab, Hicks should be set to return around early-to-mid September.

Luke Voit

Luke Voit was sent to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders to complete full workouts and is set to begin playing games tomorrow. Here you can see Voit taking full swings during BP:

Voit mentioned that he is feeling back to 100% and he thinks he won’t need surgery until maybe the offseason. If all goes well in Scranton, Voit could find himself back in pinstripes in the nearing weeks.

Edwin Encarnacion

After being drilled in the hand similar to Aaron Judge’s last season injury, Edwin Encarnacion is still weeks away from beginning baseball activities. He said that he’s “feeling better” however he’s far back in the rehabbing process. Originally being placed on the 10-day injured list, Encarnacion looks like he will return in three-to-five weeks, most likely being a full five.
