New York Yankees ‘captain’ Aaron Judge (31) was eventually placed on the injured list.
The New York Yankees announced on the official website on the 2nd (Korean time) that “Jerger with a right hip injury has been placed on the 10-day injured list.” Judge’s injured list row is retroactively applied from the 29th of last month, so he can play on the 9th.
Judge suffered an injury while attempting to steal third base in the top of the second inning in an away game against the Minnesota Twins on the 27th of last month. At the time, he was head-first sliding, but the process he went into the base was not smooth.
A day later, on the 28th, Judge started as a starter in an away game against the Texas Rangers, suggesting that he was not injured, but was replaced after playing only two at-bats. Eventually he underwent an MRI scan and he hoped it wasn’t a major injury. However, as a result of the inspection, the row on the injured list was decided.
In August 2020, he was placed on the injured list two years after leaving due to a right calf injury.
Director Aaron Boone explained, “The injury is minor, but I put it on the injured list to prevent it from getting worse.”
Judge is one of the major league hitters. He won the American League MVP last season with 177 hits, 62 home runs, 131 RBI, and a batting average of 0.311 and 1.111 on 177 hits. In particular, he broke the American League record for most home runs in a single season with 61 set by Roger Maris in 1961, setting a new record. It is a record broken after 61 years without taking drugs. 토토사이트
Judge has 24 hits, 6 homers, 14 RBIs, 18 runs scored, and a batting average of 0.261 and 0.863 OPS this season.
After the season, Judge, who came out of the free agent market (FA), signed a 9-year, 360 million dollar (approximately 482.7 billion won) contract with the Yankees and remained with the team. Following this, he took over the captaincy, which had been vacant since Derek Jeter in 2014.
The Yankees have been sluggish with 3 wins and 7 losses in 10 games with their recent 3 losses. Moreover, there is no Giancarlo Stanton (34) who forms a pair with Judge. Stanton, who hit 50 homers in 2017, was out with a hamstring injury in April. To make matters worse, missing the jersey is expected to be a fatal blow to the team. When will the two cannons explode together?
