Yankees' Aaron Judge: Not starting in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Judge went hitless with a walk and one strikeout in three at-bats Wednesday, but he'll play a bench role Thursday as the Yankees continue to manage his workload ahead of the postseason. Clint Frazier will shift to right field with Brett Gardner starting in left.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Tallies three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and one RBI during Tuesday's 12-1 win over the Blue Jays.

The 28-year-old entered the game 2-for-17 with seven strikeouts since returning from the injured list last week, but he smacked three singles and came around to score each time Tuesday. Judge has a .276/.330/.609 slash line with nine homers, 21 runs and 21 RBI through 23 games this season.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Sitting Sunday, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

Manager Aaron Boone choreographed this move, saying Friday that he expected to sit Judge for the finale in Boston. The team is understandably being cautious after Judge aggravated his calf injury immediately upon his initial return in late August. Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Clint Frazier start for the Yankees from left to right.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Likely to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Friday that Judge is expected to be in the lineup for Saturday's game against Boston before getting a day off Sunday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

With both Judge and Giancarlo Stanton building back up from injuries, the team is taking a cautious approach and managing their playing time over the remainder of the regular season. Since coming off the injured list Wednesday, Judge has started twice, going 1-for-10 with five strikeouts.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Officially not starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Judge was expected to receive a day off Thursday as the team eases him back into action following his calf injury. Clint Frazier will take over in left field.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Likely to rest Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge is expected to be held out of action Thursday as part of a plan to build him back up, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Judge returned to the lineup Wednesday, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. Both he and Giancarlo Stanton are looking to get back into a rhythm after extended stays on the injured list, and the organization intends to ease them into action down the stretch. "Obviously Giancarlo is down today, then I'll have probably Aaron down tomorrow," manager Aaron Boone indicated prior to Wednesday's contest. "Then they'll go back-to-back days the next time, then into three and four in a row. We'll just kind of build it that way."

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Judge has participated in simulated games over the past several days, and he'll be healthy enough to rejoin the Yankees for the final games of the regular season. The 28-year-old has appeared in just one game since Aug. 11 because he aggravated his injury when he initially returned from the injured list. Given the past regression, the team could choose to ease Judge back into action over the coming days.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Activation expected before weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) is expected to be activated from the injured list before Friday's series opener against the Red Sox, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The 28-year-old had seven plate appearances during an intrasquad game Tuesday, and manager Aaron Boone said there is a "good chance" he returns prior to the weekend series. Judge has appeared in one game since Aug. 11 due to the calf strain, as he aggravated the injury after initially returning from the injured list. Assuming he is reinstated within the next few days, he'll be available for at least the final 10 games of the regular season.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Participates in sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) hit, ran and took the field in a simulated game Monday, Conor Foley of the Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

Judge was expected to miss about three weeks when he landed on the injured list with a calf strain for the second time this season in late August. That time period will expire this Friday, and he appears to be roughly still on that timeline, with Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reporting that he's expected back at some point this week.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Continues to progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) could start playing at the Yankees' alternate training site Monday, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports.

He did baserunning and hit in the cage Sunday, so it seems he remains on track for a potential activation next weekend. Giancarlo Stanton and Gio Urshela are a little ahead of Judge in their progressions, so the Yankees could be getting three key hitters back within the next week.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Could return next weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) has a good chance to return by next weekend, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Judge was expected to miss three weeks when he landed on the injured list with a strained calf two weeks ago, and it appears as though he's still on that same timeline. The Yankees are stuck in the middle of a very competitive playoff race, but there's little sense in them rushing Judge, who's already hit the injured list twice in this short season.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Approaching next step in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) could begin a "more aggressive" progression of baseball activities Monday, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.

Judge has already begun to ramp up activity of late, and he appears ready to push forward with the next step in his recovery soon. "He's had a couple of good days and started to ramp up a little bit. I think Monday we'll start the real progression as far as a lot of baseball activities, more aggressive with some of the running and the buildup," manager Aaron Boone stated Saturday. However, even if Judge makes quick progress, the Yankees figure to take a cautious approach to his activation given the fact that he's dealing with the recurrence of an injury.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Resumes baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) resumed baseball activities Friday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Judge has been on the injured list for one week of what was projected to be a three-week stay. Assuming his recovery proceeds without setbacks, he'll be ready to return with approximately 10 days left in the regular season. Given that he's already on his second trip to the injured list of the season due to the same calf issue, however, the Yankees are likely to be quite cautious with him.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Timetable uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone indicated Tuesday that the team does not have a timetable for when Judge (calf) will resume baseball activities but added that the slugger is feeling "pretty well," Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Judge was placed on the 10-day IL on Aug. 28 with a three-week return estimate, so he's unlikely to return prior to the final two weeks of the season. Even if the slugger continues to feel good as he recovers, the Yankees aren't going to push his return to the lineup since the calf problem is a recurring issue that didn't go away after 11 days of rest the first time around. The hope in the organization is likely for Judge to come back in time to shake off any rust and be a healthy contributor for a potential postseason run.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: To IL for three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) is heading back to the injured list, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

General manager Brian Cashman told fans on a Zoom call Thursday that the team will have to give Judge twice as long as the first time he was on the IL. He missed 11 days the first time around, so he may only return with a week left in the season, if he is able to return at all. There were reports the last time he was on the IL that he was feeling 100 percent, but this Grade 1 calf strain is clearly something that he has trouble playing through.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Undergoes MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) underwent an MRI on Thursday and could return to the injured list, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Judge aggravated his calf injury Wednesday and was forced to exit the second game of the doubleheader. The results of his MRI aren't yet known, but manager Aaron Boone confirmed that he aggravated the same injury that he dealt with earlier in the season. Judge returned from the injured list Tuesday, but Boone said that he could require another stay on the IL.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Aggravates calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge exited Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Braves with right calf tightness, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The 28-year-old went 1-for-3. His calf tightened up while running the bases, and he was removed during the sixth inning. It was Judge's first game action after he missed over two weeks with a right calf strain, so it's a concerning development for the Yankees. According to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, manager Aaron Boone said a return trip to the injured list is possible, but specifics won't be known until Judge is further evaluated Thursday.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Will play RF in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge, who is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against Atlanta, will start in right field for Game 2, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

The Yankees understandably don't want Judge to play in both games of the twin bill after he was just activated from the injured list, but it's at least comforting to know he will be in there for the nightcap after he was absent from the Game 1 lineup. Mike Tauchman is starting in right field while Mike Ford is the designated hitter in the matinee.

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Sitting in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Braves.

He was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday and was originally in that lineup as the designated hitter before the game got postponed, so this is mildly concerning. That said, it would not be surprising if the Yankees planned on sitting him for one half of Wednesday's twin bill, so as long as he is in the lineup for the nightcap, we can assume nothing has changed with regard to his health. Mike Tauchman is starting in right field while Mike Ford is the designated hitter in the matinee.

August 25, 2020 03:40 PM
Yankees' Aaron Judge: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Judge (calf) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Judge was sidelined for eight games due to a strained right calf, but he said throughout the Yankees' weekend layoff that he'd be available Tuesday. As expected, the 28-year-old was officially activated and should be available Tuesday against Atlanta. He carries a 1.101 OPS with nine home runs and 20 RBI over 17 games this year.
