The New York Yankees dodged a significant injury.

On Tuesday night in the series opener against the Baltimore Orioles, captain Aaron Judge was hit by a pitch on the left hand. He stayed in the game for an inning before he exited and was sent for tests.

After the game, Judge spoke to reporters and revealed that the X-rays and CT scans came back negative and called it a “big relief.”

Judge is dealing with some swelling but said he already told manager Aaron Boone that he wants to be in Wednesday’s lineup.


ORIGINAL STORY

New York Yankees fans are holding their breath.

Aaron Judge left Tuesday’s series opener against the Baltimore Orioles after being hit on the left hand by a 94.1 mph fastball.

Judge initially stayed in the game and scored on a Giancarlo Stanton RBI single, and even played the field in the top of the fourth before exiting the contest.
