This Wednesday, Aaron Judge left the game with the Yankees with an apparent injury to his right arm after failing to steal third base in the second inning during New York’s victory against the Minnesota Twins.
The Yankees would end up winning the game 12-6, but their star player and captain wasn’t seen for a couple of innings, with fans and media uncertain if he was continuing in the game as he didn’t had to take the field defensively after being placed as a designated hitter on today’s game by Aaron Boone.
Aaron Judge was back and healthy for his next at bat
Fortunately for the Judge, the Yankees and their fans, the current AL MVP came back in the fourth inning to take his next at bat, with the slugger drawing a walk.
Before Aaron Judge’s sudden exit with an injury he had batted two doubles, one of them with bases loaded, which gave the Yankees a 5-0 lead at that moment, having another single later in the game.
Judge is also celebrating his 31st birthday this Wednesday.
