After just one game, the New York Yankees' once-crowded outfield became suddenly thin when the team was forced to place center fielder Aaron Hicks on the 10-day disabled list Friday.

The New York Yankees are off to a hot start, defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 on Opening Day. It may not have gotten sore until hours after the game or even this morning. NY already was missing Jacoby Ellsbury, who's out with an oblique injury, and Clint Frazier, who's recovering from a concussion. We'll update with more on Hicks when we have more information on the severity, but he'll be out at least ten days with the rib injury.

Hicks (intercostal) has a Grade I strain and went on the 10-day DL. Hicks, who played the entire game, felt soreness between his third and fourth at bats, general manager Brian Cashman said.

His injury forced the Yankees to recall outfielder Billy McKinney from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. "I don't want to wear him out", Boone said. He batted.266 with 15 homers and 52 RBIs. "Hopefully it's a short term thing". He will rest for three days before resuming baseball activities.

"It's frustrating after spending the offseason trying to prevent something like this", he said.

Hicks joins outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury, who has a right oblique strain, and Clint Frazier, who has a concussion on the Yankees' DL.

Ellsbury (oblique) is eligible to come off the disabled list on Thursday, but there is no guarantee that happens.

"We feel really good about him defensively wherever we put him, left or right field", manager Aaron Boone said.

Aaron Judge could be moving over to center field with Yankee injuries.

While playing Brett Gardner in center field would seem to be a natural fix to the issue for the Yankees, Boone stressed he doesn't want to put too much on the 34-year-old veteran's plate this early in the season.
