The New York Yankees are banged up even before their first spring training workout.

Center fielder Aaron Hicks is not expected back until June or July following Tommy John surgery.

Left-hander James Paxton had spinal surgery and is not expected to pitch in a big league game for three-to-four months.

Gerrit Cole heads the rotation after signing a $324 million contract, and while New York's roster appears to be deep, more injuries could quickly change that on a team that sent a big league record 30 players to the injured list last year.
