Yankees fans getting great news today as the team announced that they are activating their 26-year-old slugger from the Disabled List, but he won't be doing any slugging yet.
Judge fractured his wrist after being out by a pitch on July 26th. He's been taking batting practice but the team isn't ready for him to swing a bat against live pitching yet.
Until that time he'll be available as a pinch runner or a defensive replacement.
Before Judge hits in a game, Boone noted that he will hit in simulated games. Since that decision on sim games is a couple of days away, sounds like Judge could be a week or so away from being a full-time player in a game.— Jack Curry (@JackCurryYES) September 14, 2018
