TAMPA, Florida – New York Yankees hitter Aaron Judge will have been to Spring training camp this week, in great shape, with a wrist broken on his wrist, according to manager Aaron Boone.
"He's as healthy as he's probably been since he's in big leagues," Boone said Sunday.
Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia, who has only three career goals and three wins out of 250, has officially announced that he will retire after 2019.
While he was addressing reporters on the eve of the players' positions reporting to the team's complex, Boone added that the judge will come to George M. Steinbrenner Field to feel significantly better than He had not done it this year last year.
Last spring, Judge was in the final stages of recovery from shoulder surgery during the off-season. The star player has been relaxed in practice and even kept out or limited in the first spring training matches.
This will not be the case this spring.
"He's so far ahead of the match that he was last year," said Boone. "A lot of his winter [last year] was poured into the center of detoxification of the shoulder ".
This arthroscopic shoulder surgery was held a few weeks after the judge 's 2017 rookie season in which he hit 52 homers.
"This year, it was a normal off-season, putting his body in an excellent position.When you talk to him, I think he's really excited about the position of his shoulder, certainly compared to that of last year, "said Boone. . "The interview he had to make in the last few years really feels like he has to endure it in many ways."
The judge also suffered the lingering effects of the wrist injury that marginalized her for nearly two months late last season, Boone said. The judge had a broken right wrist and missed nearly eight weeks after being hit by a 94 mph pace on July 26th.
Once he was allowed to return on September 14, the judge went 9-for-41 with a double and a run in the final two weeks of the regular season. However, he broke out in the playoffs with an average of .421 (8 vs 19) with three homers, four RBIs and a 1.447 OPS in five playoff games.
