New York Yankees captain Aaron Judge was selected as a starting outfielder for the American League All-Star team.
Judge is the fourth player in franchise history to be elected to the All-Star Game five times, joining Hall of Famers Derek Jeter (nine) and Dave Winfield (seven), as well as Alex Rodriguez (eight).
However, the 31-year-old will not be able to participate in the game at Seattle’s T-Mobile Park on July 11 as he is still recovering from a torn ligament in his toe.
Despite missing 10 games with a right hip sprain from April 28 to May 8 and appearing in only two contests in June, Judge leads the Yankees in home runs (19), RBIs (40), and walks (35). At the time of his injury, he led the Majors in slugging percentage (.674), OPS (1.078), and wRC+ (189).
