Cashman Said This Player Will ''Have To Earn His Role With The Yankees Moving Forward''

He had a fairly disappointing season. 

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that outfielder Aaron Hicks will have to earn his role with the Yankees moving forward. 
Hicks is still owed $29.5 million over the next three seasons, so he will be back, as confirmed by Cashman as well. 

There still is the possibility of a trade, but the Yankees would definitely have to cover a big chunk of Hicks' remaining contract for a team willing to take on the outfielder. 

This past season, Hicks slashed .216/.330/.313, with eight home runs, 40 RBIs, 10 stolen bases and 54 runs scored over 130 games. He was also knocked out of the ALDS due to a left knee injury. 

Over the past three seasons, the thirty-three-year-old has hit a disappointing .215/.337/.342 slash line, with 18 home runs and 75 RBIs over 216 games.
