TAMPA, Fla. — According to multiple reports, Aaron Judge exhibited some “crankiness and soreness” in his right shoulder.

Crankiness is also a mood on Yankees Twitter right now but I digress.

According to Jack Curry, manager Aaron Boone noted the New York Yankees right fielder experienced the feeling upon his arrival to Tampa in late Jan. Judge underwent an MRI which showed no structural changes in the shoulder. Boone added Judge will increase activities in the next few days and views the diagnosis as a, “pretty minor thing.”

Adler also noted Judge was shut down from hitting a week ago.

If you have 2019 PTSD, I know what you’re thinking, pretty minor morphs into dry swings in a month to a player being out three months.

However, it is Feb., Boone says it’s minor, so, step back from the ledge and relax.


In other notable Yankees news today, Giancarlo Stanton smacked a home run off the scoreboard. While Judge won’t be playing, J.A. Happ will start the spring training opener on Feb. 22.
