Yankees ‘very optimistic’ Judge will return this season

The New York Yankees believe that star hitter Aaron Judge will return this MLB season while recovering from a wrist injury.

Yankees outfielder Judge has been out since being hit by a pitch and broke his wrist against the Kansas City Royals last month.

Judge: a two-time All-Star is not hitting.

Asked by Judge on Friday, Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters: "I think we're still very optimistic [of Judge’s return].

" Obviously it took a little longer than I thought. we originally thought, but the plan is, and we believe, will return.

"When that happens, we're not sure, but he'll come back, hopefully with a lot of time to prepare as we move down the stretch."

The judge has registered a court line of .285 / .398 / .548 in 99 games this season. He also hit 26 homers and racked up 61 RBIs.
