Yankees Star Aaron Judge Placed on Injured List

Judge sustained an injury when the Yankees faced the Dodgers last weekend

In the latest sports news, after Tuesday night’s defeat against the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed to NFL News authorities that slugger Aaron Judge would be placed on the injured list due to a toe contusion and a sprained toe ligament.

Then, on Wednesday afternoon, the Yankees officially moved Judge to the 10-day injured list, retroactive to June 4, citing a right great toe sprain. In a corresponding roster move, outfielder Billy McKinney was signed and added to the active roster, while reliever Ryan Weber was transferred to the 60-day injured list. If you are using white label sports betting services in your sportsbooks, then you need not worry as the lines will be moved as needed based on these changes.

This is to alleviate swelling around the injured area. The duration of Judge’s absence will depend on how quickly the swelling subsides. The injury occurred on Saturday during an impressive catch Judge made against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Since the incident, Aaron Judge has been unable to play, allowing the Yankees to backdate his injury to Sunday. The Dodgers, in response to Judge’s injury, have announced plans to reinforce the section of the Dodger Stadium wall in right field and add additional padding along the bottom for increased player safety. The absence of Judge will undoubtedly be felt in the Yankee lineup during his upcoming recovery period. After an impressive 2022 MLB season where he set an American League record with 62 home runs and earned MVP honors, Judge has continued to shine this year. Currently, he boasts a slash line of .291/.404/.674 with 19 home runs in 49 games, leading the American League in home runs.
