      Yankees' Aaron Judge: Unhurt after HBP

      Aaron Judge was hit in the lat and pulled from Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against Toronto, but he is fine, according to Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger.Judge was drilled by a 96 mph fastball and immediately removed from the contest, but New York Yankees interim manager Carlos Mendoza indicated after the game that the slugger was pulled because he was slated for only two plate appearances regardless of the outcome. At this point, there appears to be no concern about Judge needing to miss any time. In his other plate appearance Wednesday, Judge lined out to right field.

      Yankees' Aaron Judge: Will ease into action

      Aaron Judge stated Sunday that he'll play in every other game at the start of spring training, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.Judge is healthy entering Grapefruit League play, but it makes sense for New York to be cautious with the slugger given his rash of injuries over the past three seasons.

      Yankees' Aaron Judge: Yet to discuss extension

      Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees have not yet engaged in talks about a contract extension, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.Judge isn't set to become a free agent until 2023 -- next season will be his final year of arbitration -- so the lack of extension talks is not necessarily telling when it comes to interpreting the Yankees' interest in locking him up long term. Still, the slugger has missed over 140 regular-season games over the past three seasons, so it wouldn't be shocking if New York has some level of trepidation about his ability to stay on the field. A healthy and productive 2021 campaign would likely ease those fears and set Judge up for a massive payday.

      Yankees' Aaron Judge: Changing offseason routine

Across the past three campaigns, he's spent a combined 146 days on the injured list. While these types of reports are hardly unique at this time of the offseason, Judge has the potential to be a standout source of power in the 2021 season if he can remain on the field.
