Aaron Judge (31-New York Yankees), who has been on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his right thumb, has begun taking batting practice.
“Jersey participated in batting practice with some light running prior to today’s game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado,” MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on 16 June.
Judge, who began playing catch late last month, has been gradually building up to his return.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone was positive about Judge’s progress. However, there are no plans for a minor league rehab assignment yet.
While he is not considering in-season surgery, there is still the possibility of post-season surgery.
Judge hit 62 home runs last year, setting an American League record for most home runs.온라인바카라
This year, however, he has struggled with injuries and hasn’t played since June 4. With just 19 home runs on the season, he’s effectively out of the running for the batting title this year.
