Aaron Judge Misses Second Straight Game With “Soreness”
New York Yankees' outfielder Aaron Judge is not in the starting lineup for his second straight game since manager Aaron Boone told the press he was suffering from "Lower body soreness". Considering that Judge has a history of spending prolonged periods of time on the Injured List, this is not the news Yankees fans were hoping to hear right now. Not only was Judge starting to swing the bat better but it looks like the Yankees themselves could possibly be turning the corner. The Bronx Bombers have won five of their last seven games and with a win today would win their second straight four-game series.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone was quoted in New York Post about Judge:
“He’s a little banged up on the trip,’’ Boone said before the game. “I would say a number parts of the lower body [are sore].”
Boone defended not detailing exactly what’s bothering Judge, mentioning “multiple minor things that pop up.”
“There’s times it’s absolutely, clearly specific,’’ Boone said. “And other times it’s a little bit of gray, a little bit gray and a little bit wear-and-tear, so that’s what I leave it at.”
The Yankees also just traded backup outfielder Mike Tauchman to the San Fransisco Giants for LHP Wandy Peralta who they added to the active roster today. Peralta will wear #58.
