Aaron Judge (31, New York Yankees), who left the line due to a toe injury, is about to return.
The Associated Press reported on the 26th (Korean time), “Judge, who is on the injured list due to a right thumb ligament rupture, will return this weekend at the earliest.”
Judge played a practice game at camp in Tampa, Florida.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said, “Judge stood at bat several times in practice. He defended in the outfield for about five innings and ran on base.”
Director Boone said, “I check the condition of the jersey every day. It is undecided whether I will participate in the game.”
Regarding the possibility of returning on the weekend, he said, “I can’t rule out any possibility,” and he said that there is a possibility that he will play against the Baltimore Orioles starting as early as the 28th.
Judge hit 62 home runs last year, breaking the American League record for most home runs and was named MVP.먹튀검증
This year, he hit 19 homers (batting average of 0.291, 40 RBIs, 42 runs) until the 4th of last month, aiming for the home run king for the second year in a row. However, he was injured when he collided with a fence while defending against the Los Angeles Dodgers that day.
He recently joined the team and started training, and on the 24th, he also played live batting at Yankee Stadium, his home stadium.
