Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge still not cleared for baseball activities

March 25 2020 9:42 PM

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge has still not resumed baseball activities as he continues to recover from a rib stress fracture.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said on Wednesday that his two-time All-Star right fielder is expected to be re-evaluated again in a few weeks.

Judge never played in a spring training game after feeling discomfort in his right pectoral muscle and shoulder while swinging a bat.

The Yankees then announced his rib issue on March 6, an injury the team believes Judge suffered while making a diving catch last season.

Judge also said last week that he has recovered from a collapsed lung that Boone said also likely occurred during the catch.

''Aaron is still in the healing phase of that that rib bone, and I think he'll be re-evaluated again in a few weeks as far as re-imaging that to see if there's the continued healing with that rib,'' Boone said during Wednesday’s conference call.

''He's been able to work out doing a lot of lower-body stuff, is able to do some upper-body stuff, some overhead things.''

Judge, who has remained at the team's spring training complex in Tampa, Florida while MLB is suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, has struggled with injuries since being named the American League Rookie of the Year in 2017 when he hit .284 with 52 home runs and 114 RBIs in 155 games.

He was limited to 112 regular-season games in 2018 and 102 last season. Judge has combined to bat .276 with 54 home runs and 122 RBIs in those 214 games over the past two seasons.
