Caribbean League? Yankees want Aaron Hicks to play winter baseball

The New York Yankees, through general manager Brian Cashman and manager Aaron Boone, have let it be known that they want Aaron Hicks to see action in a professional baseball league.

Aaron Hicks has fallen short of that contract extension the Yankees gave him, injuries have reduced his performance and when healthy he doesn’t get the job done either, it is very difficult for the team to get a trade for his services, they just have to fight to get him back on the field.

There are multiple winter leagues in the Caribbean running the regular season, from the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Mexico, all are options for him to play in. If you are looking for the strongest of them all, then it is the Dominican League thanks to the presence of other major leaguers.

If it is for Aaron Hicks to choose, he may decide to sign in the Dominican League, a country where several of his teammates such as Gary Sanchez, Albert Abreu, Domingo German, Luis Severino, Miguel Andujar, Deivi Garcia and even Wandy Peralta, who is playing with the Aguilas CibaeƱas, reside.

In the United States there are also strong winter leagues where former professional players and others playing in the Minor Leagues are also an option for Hicks.
