MLB’s home run king, Jersey, bats live for first time since toe injury

Injured American professional baseball slugger Aaron Judge 토토사이트 (New York Yankees) has raised the possibility of a late-season return.

Jersey took his first live batting at Yankee Stadium in New York City on Thursday (24 June) after suffering a toe injury, local media reported.

Live batting is a live batting drill in which the batter hits a ball thrown by the pitcher on the mound.

Jersey, who is rehabbing from elbow surgery, hit 16 pitches thrown by pitcher Jonathan Loaisiga, and while he didn’t hit any in-play balls, his swing was judged to be sharp for his first practice.

Jersey was injured on 4 March when he struck his big toe on the outfield fence while playing catch in a game against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers.

A postgame examination revealed a torn ligament in the toe, and he has been rehabbing for nearly two months.

“The pain in my toe isn’t completely gone, but I’m recovering well,” Jersey said after practice.

The Yankees, who have slipped to fourth place in the American League East, will get a major boost in the late-season wild-card race if Judge returns.

After being named the league’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) after hitting 62 home runs last year, Judge became a free agent and signed a nine-year, $360 million contract with his former team.
