Yankees reinstate Aaron Judge from injured list after 42-game absence

Aaron Judge is finally back.

The New York Yankees reinstated the superstar outfielder from the injured list ahead of Friday’s series opener in Baltimore against the Orioles.

To make room on the roster, the club optioned infielder Oswald Peraza to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.


Judge missed 42 games with a torn ligament in his right big toe after crashing into the right-field wall in Los Angeles on June 3.

The Yankees went 24-29 without him and have been at the bottom of the league in most offensive categories.

Judge, who is hitting .291/.404/.674 with 19 home runs this season, is expected to DH a lot in the first couple of weeks.
