Aaron Judge ramps up pregame work; Boone believes that a return in July is possible – UnlistedNews

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge took batting practice and ran in the outfield at Coors Field on Friday as he recovers from a torn ligament in his right big toe.

“I wanted to test it out here in the city of Mile High a little bit,” Judge said before the Yankees played the Colorado Rockies in their first game after the All-Star break.

The American League MVP said he was given a roster to provide support.

New York manager Aaron Boone said he is encouraged by Judge’s progress, both running and hitting. He was asked if Judge could return to the lineup in July.

“I think there is an opportunity,” Boone said. “Now, is that going to be, ‘Aaron Boone said he thinks he’ll be back in July?’ That’s not what I said. He was answering a question. I’m not going to put a time frame on this. He’s doing well. He’ll be ready when I’m ready.”

Judge is hitting .291 with 19 home runs, 40 RBIs and a 1.078 OPS in 49 games. He hasn’t played since spraining his toe when he hit the right-field fence while making a terrific catch at Dodger Stadium on June 3.
