Aaron Hicks came back with a bang last night, robbing Tampa Bay of a grand slam with a spectacular catch in left field.  "In the very first inning of the Yankees-Rays game on Tuesday night, Hicks robbed Wilson Ramos of a grand slam. This was Hicks’ first game back from the disabled list since straining his left oblique on Sept. 2," reported USA Today.  Hicks is expected to make a big impact as he has done this season for the Yankees as they head into the post season next week.

“I’ve got six games left and I just want to finish strong,” Hicks said. “That’s what I want to do, and I’ve just got to go out there and do it. I definitely feel I’ve made big strides, but we’ve still got more games to go.”

Another post season weapon expected to make his way back into the bullpen for the Yankees Adam Warren who is another impact-player for the Bombers.  "With the Yankees on the cusp of postseason play, Warren figures to be a welcome addition to a power bullpen anchored by Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, David Robertson, Chad Green and Tommy Kahnle. The 30-year-old is 3-2 with a 2.40 ERA in 45 appearances this season," reported

As the NY Post reported last week, "Adam Warren can make the Yankees bullpen ridiculous." That's because the bullpen, despite their woes earlier this season, has been sensational led by Chad Green, who took Warren's spot in the bullpen rotation.  "In Warren’s absence, Chad Green has been the reliever manager Joe Girardi uses for multiple frames, and the right-hander has been brilliant. In 28 of Green’s 35 appearances, he has worked more than one frame. In those 35 outings, Green was 5-0 with a 1.96 ERA and has struck out 99 in compared to 15 walks in 64 ¹/₃," reported the NY Post.

So the Yankees have their players in place for what hopes to be a great post season run for them. Let's hope these newly added weapons are the final pieces of the toolkit ready to take on the American League's finest for 2017.
