During Wednesday night’s loss to the Atlanta Braves, Aaron Judge was removed after the sixth inning due to an injury. An MRI revealed that it’s a recurrence of the calf injury that had sidelined him a few weeks ago.
Aaron Judge (right calf) had an MRI today, according to Aaron Boone on WFAN. Boone said it is a recurrence of the same injury and that Judge could be headed to the IL.
This is devastating news for a slumping Yankees team that is in desperate need for some offense.
This morning, Lindsey Adler confirmed the Judge has been placed on the IL again:
On a Zoom call with fans yesterday, Brian Cashman said "Judge just went back on the IL," and "we'll probably have to give him twice as long as the first time." Said timeline for Gleyber Torres (hamstring/quad) is "anywhere from 3-6 weeks." The call was organized by @BAT1STA.
