Atlanta Braves Rumors: Yankees Outfielder On Team's Radar

Aaron Hicks has made it known that he is not a big fan of being a bench player for the New York Yankees, and it seems quite possible that a move could be on the way because of it. Now, the veteran outfielder is generating some interest around the league, as the Atlanta Braves are being linked to him.

The Braves could certainly use another outfielder when looking at their current group, and Hicks stands out as a possible trade target for them because of it. He would be in the running to play quite often, and it could be exactly what he needs to get his game back on track. 

One good thing about a possible Hicks trade for the Braves is that they would not need to give up too much to successfully acquire him. At this point, it appears that both the player and the team are ready to move on from one another, so we will now need to wait and see if the Braves end up bringing in Hicks from here.
