New York Yankees Fans Get More Bad News About Aaron Judge

Aaron Judge

As Aaron Judge goes, the New York Yankees go. That’s been the case for the past few years, and has again been the case this year.

After his American League-record 63 home runs last year, he got p a nine-year $360 million contract in free agency from the Yankees. And, after a slow-ish start to the season, he’s return to form as arguably the league’s most dominant hitter.

In 49 games, Aaron Judge has 19 home runs, 40 RBI’s and has an insane OPS of 1.078. But, an injury to his toe on June 3rd in Dodger Stadium that landed him on IL on June 6 is not healing correctly. Here is Sports Illustrated with more details.

New York has been without Judge for nearly two weeks since placing him on the injured list on June 6, three days after he injured his toe following a collision with the outfield fence during a road matchup against the Dodgers.

As of Friday, the Yankees have yet to place a timeline on when Judge could possibly re-join the lineup. When asked Friday if the star slugger could be back ahead of the MLB All-Star Game on July 11, Boone was noncommittal while discussing the possibility.

“I think there’s a shot for that. That said, I don’t know,” Boone told reporters, per’s Bryan Hoch. “I mean, I think he could be back in a week. He could be back in four. I don’t know.”

Boone’s unclear answer adds to the uncertainty surrounding Judge’s condition. Since landing on the IL, Judge has received two platelet-rich plasma injections—on June 6 and June 15, per—to address the contusion and ligament sprain in his toe.

In Judge’s absence, New York has gone 4–5 since his last appearance on June 3. The club opened a three-game road series with the Red Sox, the team’s second set against their AL East rival in a week, on Friday.

Yeah, that sounds not good at all for the New York Yankees and Aaron Judge. They lost again Friday night to the Red Sox, 15-5, and things are spiraling.
