As per reports, Judge says he felt slight tension on the right side of his body when he slid awkwardly into the third base on a steal attempt during the Yankees’ game against Minnesota on Wednesday. While nothing looked concerning, he was seen returning to the game, clutching his right hand as he returned to the dugout.

However, in Thursday’s game against the Rangers, Judge appeared to feel discomfort in the top of the fourth inning. He was seen leaving the game shortly after that. Oswaldo Cabera then replaced him in the right field at Global Life Field.

While many people had previously speculated that Judge might be facing an injury on his right arm, the New York Yankees Captain was taken out of the game due to an injury. Fans are now nervous about how many games the All Rise would miss following this news of injury.

Indeed, the injury update for Aaron Judge came in at the wrong time for the Yankees, especially when they will next be facing Texas Rangers and Cleveland Guardians in their respective match series. The Yankees will next face the Rangers in three more games and the Guardians in a three-game series for their second meeting this year.

Judge has mentioned nothing concerning the injury, stating that a few days of rest would be enough for Judge to return safely to play. Ideally, the Yankees captain is expected to miss the remaining games with the Rangers in the Texas series.

On this note, manager Aaron Boone says, “I was pretty firm with it. I didn’t leave much to it — I wanted to get him out of there. I just felt like I didn’t want him to do something more — even if he felt like he could continue to go, I wasn’t going to mess around with that. don’t like taking our guy out, but we’ll see what we have here tomorrow and the next couple of days and see we’re at with it.”

The concern for Aaron Judge’s absence is now a major source of worry for not just fans but for the other Yankees players as well. Reliever Michael King, who pitched 21/3 scoreless, hitless innings on Thursday’s game has expressed the same sentiments through his statements. King says, “Any time he comes out of the game, it’s not great. I’m just praying for him and hoping he’s OK.”
