The New York Mets need at least one more outfielder, and fast. Pitching surely isn’t the only need on the list, and with slugger Yoenis Cespedes gone, his shoes need to be filled too.
Aaron Hicks has done a solid B plus job with the New York Yankees. In 2020, he hit 6 home runs and 21 batted in. In 2019, he hit 12 home runs and 36 batted in.

2018 was his best year in recent years, he hit 27 home runs and 79 batted in.
Hicks, 31, would be perfect to man Center Field for a few years. He provides good defense and a quality bat.
The Mets could potentially see him be a surprise in Queens, should they target him in trade. It’s something that could potentially boost the lineup in all areas in the grand scheme of things.
