New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks is dealing with a torn sheath in his left wrist that caused him to miss Friday’s game at the Baltimore Orioles and potentially could keep him out longer.

The Yankees also made Giancarlo Stanton a late scratch due to tightness in his left quad.

Manager Aaron Boone said Hicks is taking anti-inflammatories to treat the issue before he is re-evaluated, but surgery could be on the table.

Hicks has batted .194 with four home runs, 14 RBIs and 30 strikeouts in 32 games this season.

Boone said Stanton, usually the Yankees’ designated hitter, could be an option in the outfield for New York if Hicks misses some time. Stanton has clubbed nine homers and driven in 24 runs while batting .282 in 33 games this year.
