Yankees Re-Sign Aaron Hicks, Name Andy Pettitte Special Advisor

  • Pin It

The New York Yankees are putting their foot down in regards to molding their current talent into championship contenders.

After their unwillingness to go after Manny Machado and similar approach towards current free agent Bryce Harper, the Yankees announced on Monday they have re-signed Aaron Hicks to a seven-year, $70 million deal.

Hicks had a career year in 2018, hitting 27 home runs and driving in 79. The former Minnesota Twins top propsect has had a career revival ever since hitting the Bronx. He did only hit .248 in 2018, but his .366 OBP and 15% walk ratio show that his game is rounding out. Seeing these type of numbers most likely prompted GM Brian Cashman to make the move and re-sign Hicks at $10 million per year.

That wasn’t even the biggest news coming out of Yankees camp.

Yes, the Yankees have brought on five-time World Series champion Andy Pettitte to be a Special Advisor to Cashman. Pettitte’s knowledge of the game especially from the pitchers mound will be a welcomed addition to the front office as well as on the field.

His exact role besides the Special Advisor title is not yet known, but Pettitte does know a thing or two about winning.
