Yankees receive bad news on Aaron Judge’s injury status
Rucker Haringey

The Yankees had high hopes they could get Aaron Judge back in three weeks after his wrist injury. Now, it’s obvious the slugger will miss even more time.

Aaron Judge is doing his best to be the Yankees’ emotional leader as of late, but he definitely wants to get back on the field as soon as possible. Unfortunately, his return to the Yankees is going to take a little longer than the organization initially hoped.

When Judge first suffered his fractured wrist there were optimistic projections that he could be swinging a bat again in just three weeks time. According to manager Aaron Boone, the timeline for Judge’s recovery will definitely exceed that initial three-week time frame.

Per Boone, Judge still “feels” the injury a little bit and as such, isn’t ready to swing a bat again at this time.

The only good news is that, once the pain in the wrist subsides, Judge should be able to return to the middle of the order pretty quickly. His injury isn’t preventing him from running, lifting weights or participating in other conditioning drills with his teammates.

The chipped bone in his wrist really only prevents him from taking active swings with the bat.

Of course, that’s a big part of Judge’s game. The Yankees are smart not to try to rush him back too soon. Wrist issues for a power hitter like Judge can sap the quick hands necessary to really generate high quality bat speed.

The last thing New York needs is for this to become a lingering issue that bothers Judge over the entire course of his career.

The fact that the Yankees are coming off a sweep of the White Sox has lessened the sense of panic around the ballclub. As long as the wins keep coming, Boone won’t feel any pressure to speed up Judge’s recovery.

If things start to resemble last week’s nightmare series in Fenway, things could change in a hurry.

For now, Judge will continue to serve as the Yankees’ highest paid cheerleader on the bench. It will still be a few more weeks until he can make his presence felt in the middle of the team’s batting order.

I think you mean Judge's injury. 


I'm not surprised this is going to take longer than expected...  nobody would believe he'd be back in 3 weeks, realistacally.

You may have been thinking about the head injury Boone must have suffered, given some of the lineups he has thrown out there recently.  Wink

No, I think it's because their first names are the same.

As feared, wrist injuries can take a lot longer, I hope all of a sudden the pain goes away, that's probably the way it will happen ??

Those wrist injuries can be tricky. I wouldn’t mess aroun, glad they didn’t continue to blow smoke up our butts and tell us he would be back soon. I’d rather they take their sweet time and not rush him back. I knew it when I heard it the first time that three weeks wasn’t enough time to return to action (not sure anyone believed that rediculous time line Undecided). Cashman was just trying to lessen the blow of losing the heart of this team for six to eight weeks. This team needs Judge but if he can return a cpl weeks before the playoffs to get his timing down at the plate, then it all work out for our run at the WS. Innocent

He'll probably be back around the first week of September, which would be a reasonable time to let him heal. After that, he will have to do his "Spring Training" for the Yankees, because the RailRiders' season will be over by then. But that's ok. As long as we have Judge at 100% for the playoffs in October, that's all that really matters now.
