New York Yankees superstar, Aaron Judge, headed to IL

In a significant blow to the New York Yankees, their star player Aaron Judge has been forced onto the injured list for a minimum of 10 days. Judge’s absence stems from a troubling combination of a contusion and a sprained ligament in his right big toe. Following a comprehensive MRI on Tuesday, the Yankees’ team doctor delivered the prognosis, necessitating another stint on the IL. To aid in his recovery, Judge received a targeted injection in his injured toe, as shared by manager Aaron Boone.

The injury itself unfolded during a jaw-dropping moment when Judge executed a remarkable catch at Dodger Stadium, only to collide forcefully with the concrete base at the bottom of the wall. This unfortunate incident marks Judge’s second visit to the IL this season, having previously endured a 10-day absence due to a right hip strain in late April and early May.

Yankees captain Aaron Judge busted the bullpen door at Dodger Stadium while making a spectacular catch on June 3, 2023.

With Judge’s absence looming, the Yankees’ outfield lineup will undergo a notable transformation, featuring Jake Bauers, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Willie Calhoun, and Oswaldo Cabrera. Giancarlo Stanton, recently back from a hamstring strain, will exclusively serve as the team’s designated hitter and will not be an option in the outfield for the time being.

Regrettably, the Yankees find themselves bereft of their two premier outfielders, with Harrison Bader also sidelined due to a hamstring strain. The loss of Judge delivers a severe blow to the team, depriving them of the heart and soul of their lineup for the foreseeable future.
