The New York Yankees will be without center fielder Aaron Hicks for Monday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.
Manager Aaron Boone told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that Hicks was initially slotted to hit sixth but will not play after hearing about the news.
"He came to me about an hour ago," Boone said. "It's been a hard day for him. He would have had a hard time going out there tonight."
The Minnesota Twins announced their game against the Boston Red Sox was postponed, and the NBA postponed Monday's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves.
