Following the Yankees 7-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Thursday night, Aaron Judge provided an update on his wrist. Unfortunately, it wasn’t good news.
Judge told Brendan Kuty of NJ.com that the fracture in his wrist has yet to heal.
“There’s going to be discomfort for a while,” Judge said. “It’s still fractured. So, [we’re] going to wait until it heals up, and I guess I’ll move forward with some throwing and stuff like that.”
Judge added that it is a “day to day” scenario of when he will start swinging again.
Judge was placed on the disabled list on July 27, the day after being hit on the wrist by a 93-mph pitch by Jakob Junis. He initially stayed in the game, but was taken out prior to the fifth inning.
Even though Judge is still ways away from swinging a bat, he still is doing other baseball activity. Judge ran the bases yesterday afternoon under the supervision of Reggie Willits, the instructor for outfielders and base-running. However, it’s incredibly unlikely Judge will return at the end of the “three week” timetable.
