MLB world responds to the Yankees' season-ending loss of a key player

The New York Yankees defeated the Cleveland Guardians 5-1 on Tuesday to progress to the American League Championship Series, but despite their victory,

the team still suffered a significant setback as Aaron Hicks will miss the remainder of the season due to a knee injury he sustained during the game.

Hicks departed the game in the fourth inning after he and teammate Oswaldo Cabrera were involved in a collision while attempting to catch a fly ball. Hicks informed the media 

after the game that an MRI had shown a knee injury that would keep him out for six weeks and prevent him from participating in the remainder of the team's postseason run.

I'm going to be out for around six weeks. My season is very much finished," Hicks said to reporters following the game. "It's really discouraging. 

 It's obviously something unique, and I want to take part in it. And as a result, I won't be able to play on the field and give it all I've got to help our team win, even a world championship.
