Judge (knee) hit in a batting cage Thursday, NJ.com reports. The prospect has been sidelined for two weeks since sustaining the knee injury while attempting a diving play in the field, but it sounds as though he's making some progress. Judge is hoping to hit on the field and start running again soon, so although there's currently no timetable, a clearer picture should emerge as he continues to ramp up baseball activities.
Judge (knee) will be held out of game action for 3-4 weeks, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports. Judge suffered a knee sprain and bone bruise in Friday's game and it is now known that he'll be out of game action until August. The 24-year-old has improved upon his 2015 numbers with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, increasing both his BA and OBP nearly 40 points to .261 and .357, respectively.
Judge suffered a mild posterior cruciate ligament sprain and a bone bruise of the left knee, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. The 24-year-old right-hander was placed on the 7-day minor league disabled list after suffering the injury Friday night. He will be shut down from baseball activities for an undetermined amount of time.
The results of the MRI on Judge's knee are still unknown, but he has been placed on the DL at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand reports. He was removed early from Friday's game and Judge apparently felt a pop in his left knee, so it's fair to expect the injury to be somewhat serious. Look for his status to be updated as soon as the Yankees release the results of his MRI.
Judge was removed early from Friday's game after coming up limping on a ground out, the Westchester Journal News reports. Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre manager Al Pedrique reported that Judge felt a pop in his left knee, which makes the issue sound fairly serious, but the prospect apparently reported that he was fine. He's due to undergo further evaluations Saturday, so there should be more clarity on his situation once those results come in.
