Hicks Record Throw Gets Runner at Home
I loved the move the Yankees made this offseason to acquire outfielder Aaron Hicks from the Minnesota Twins. He is young, has a team-friendly and controllable contract, and can run. And we learned last night that the kid can really throw also.
Check out this throw below to nab Danny Valencia at home plate for the 7-2 DP.
The throw was calculated at more than 105.5 MPH by StatCast, which is the fastest OF throw the site has ever recorded.
Hmm.... so the Yankees are about to get back the best fastball in baseball when Aroldis Chapman comes back, and now they have among the top arms in the game in OF also.
The Yankees may not be able to hit right now, but they certainly are still exciting to watch.
The Yankees take on the A's tonight at 7:05. Pre-game coverage begins at 6:25 on Your Home For Yankees Baseball, 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio!
