He is staying within the division.

Former New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks has signed a major league contract with the American League East rival Baltimore Orioles.

This signing comes in the wake of Baltimore placing center fielder Cedric Mullins on the injured list with a strained right groin. 

The Yankees released Hicks last week, and still owe him a total of $36 million. 

Hicks played in 28 games for the Yankees this season, but hit an abysmal .188 with a .524 OPS.

The Yankees signed Hicks to a seven-year, $70 million extension prior to the 2019 season. However, the deal never worked out, as Hicks struggled to stay healthy and underperformed when he was on the field. 

Hicks will now receive a second chance with the Orioles, who come to the Bronx in early-July.
