Billy McKinney replaces injured Aaron Judge on Yankees roster

The New York Yankees announced some roster moves after Wednesday’s game was postponed due to the air quality.

The club added outfielder Billy McKinney to the active roster from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and officially placed outfielder Aaron Judge on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to June 4) with a “right great toe sprain.”

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees transferred relief pitcher Ryan Weber (UCL sprain) to the 60-day injured list.


McKinney has played very well in the minors this season, hitting .274/.388/.511 with nine home runs and 25 runs batted in over 40 games.

However, he has struggled at the big-league level. Over five MLB seasons, the 28-year-old is hitting .206/.277/.387 with 28 home runs and 72 runs batted in. 

There is no timeline for Judge’s return right now, but Manager Aaron Boone said they should know more by the end of the weekend.
