New York Yankees star outfielder Aaron Judge spoke to reporters several hours before Saturday’s game against the Texas Rangers and revealed something we had not heard.
Judge said he has a torn ligament in his big right toe and still feels pain while walking around. The team and manager Aaron Boone had previously called it a contusion and a sprain.
The 2022 American League Most Valuable Player has been out of the Yankees’ lineup since June 3, when he crashed into the right-field wall at Dodger Stadium while making a spectacular catch.
Judge has had two PRP injections, which are supposed to help speed up the healing. But with him not doing any baseball activities over the last three weeks, it’s safe to say we won’t see him back in the lineup for a lot longer.
New York’s offense ranks last in batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage this month.
