Judge went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Mariners. Judge got the Yankees on the board in the fifth inning with a single that plated two, though he was only credited for one RBI due to Denard Span's misplay of the ball in left field. The 26-year-old continues to strikeout at a high clip (30.8 percent), but he's turning in another strong season with a .281/.397/.558 line to go along with 18 homers and 48 RBI.
Judge went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Saturday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay. Judge now has a modest five-game hitting streak and is 8-for-18 with four doubles in that stretch. The 26-year-old is slashing .283/.399/.574 with 18 home runs and 89 strikeouts in 244 at-bats this season.
Judge isn't in Sunday's lineup against the Mets, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. Judge went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's tilt, and although he suffered a minor thumb injury during Friday's game, his absence from the lineup doesn't appear injury-related but instead routine rest when the Yankees don't have a designated hitter. He'll be replaced in right field by Giancarlo Stanton, who's slated to bat second.
Judge went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Mets. Judge's status in the lineup Saturday was questionable after he suffered a thumb injury in Friday's matchup, but he quieted any fear regarding the severity of the injury by going yard in the eighth inning. It turned out to be the game-winning run and was his 18th home run of the season. That's good enough for fourth in the American League, and he also ranks among the league leaders in RBI, runs scored and slugging percentage.
Judge (thumb) is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets. Judge underwent X-rays Saturday morning, but they came back negative and he should be good to go, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports. Judge has gone 1-for-16 with a home run and three RBI over his last four games.
