Judge ended up on the injured list.
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, announced on May 2nd (Korean time) that Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees was placed on the injured list (IL).
According to MLB.com, the Yankees placed Judge on a 10-day IL, retroactive to April 29, citing right hip strain.
Judge felt something wrong with his body while sliding head first in a game against the Texas Rangers on the 28th. Jersey, who was replaced during the game, was subsequently subjected to an MRI scan and found a strain in his upper right hip.
According to MLB.com, Yankees manager Aaron Boone revealed the reason for registering Judge with the IL, saying, “It was a small injury, but I wanted to avoid the risk of worsening it.” Boone added, “Judge is feeling good right now. He’s recovering well every day.” 스포츠토토
Judge signed a 9-year, $360 million contract with the Yankees ahead of this season and became the first official captain since Derek Jeter. He started the season well, appearing in 26 games and hitting .261/.352/.511 with 6 homers and 14 RBIs, but injury forced him to take some time off.
Meanwhile, the Yankees, with Judge leaving, recorded 15 wins and 14 losses as of the 1st, and are staying at the bottom of the American League East Division along with the Boston Red Sox.
