Judge went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and another run scored during Tuesday's win over the Orioles. Judge cranked his first homer of the second half of the season with a 338-foot shot against Shaun Anderson in the eighth inning. The 29-year-old is now 8-for-30 since returning from the COVID-19 injured list, while on the season he's batting .281/.372/.512 with 22 long balls.
Judge was scratched from Wednesday's lineup while going through additional testing related to his stint on the COVID-19 injured list, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. The additional testing caused Judge to arrive at the field too late to remain in the starting lineup. However, Judge entered the game as a pinch hitter and went 1-for-3 with an RBI. After the contest, manager Aaron Boone further clarified the situation and reiterated that Judge was "fine" and "good to go."
Judge was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Rays for unspecified reasons. Judge was slated to start in his usual spot in right field, but he didn't participate in batting practice and was a late removal from the lineup. The 29-year-old's status should be updated later in the evening. Estevan Florial will join the starting nine in his place.
Judge (illness) will be activated from the COVID-19 list and will be in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Judge gained clearance to rejoin the Yankees in Boston on Sunday after he tested positive for COVID-19 on July 15. The outfielder was reported to be targeting an activation at some point during the series against the Rays, and per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, he will bat second as the right fielder Tuesday.
Judge (illness) joined the Yankees in Boston on Sunday and could be activated during the upcoming three-game series in Tampa Bay, which begins Tuesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Judge will need to clear a standard cardiac workup Monday in order to gain full clearance to be activated from the COVID-19 injured list. The 29-year-old has yet to play during the second half since testing positive for the virus during the All-Star break, but he could rejoin the lineup this week if he checks out okay Monday.
