Aaron Judge injury update

While the baseball world waits for the start of the season, we received a bit of good news surrounding Aaron Judge’s rib injury.

Like most, I’m not a doctor. But a quick search revealed that a pneumothorax is a collapsed lung. While that sounds severe, the average recovery time after repairing the lung is only a couple of days.

The second piece of encouraging news is the slight improvement regarding the stress fracture in his ribs. It sounds like the decision to rest the injury and let it heal naturally is working. As we wait for baseball, Judge will have plenty of time to continue resting as we wait for Opening Day.
