Aaron Judge, now ranked the #3 Yankees prospect by MLB.com after yesterday’s trade, was leading the International League with 16 home runs on July 8, prompting buzz for the Yankees to call him up to The Show.
A mishap in right field later, and Judge was on the disabled list with a knee injury.
However, Sweeny Murti of WFAN reports that Judge should return to the lineup in 4-5 days. Could he be ticketed for the Bronx shortly thereafter?
The Yankees could sure use his bat. Though they continue to play well following the All Star break, they have scored 3 runs or less in 8 of their last 11 games.
