Aaron Judge could soon begin the first steps in his rehab process.
The 26-year-old Yankees outfielder has been out since he was hit by a pitch and fractured his wrist against the Royals on July 26. Judge said Sunday he could start swinging the bat during New York’s series against the White Sox this week.
“Everything’s feeling so far, so good,” Judge told Newsday.
“It’s not healed yet … So, it’s going to take a while for that to heal up, but right now, some of the range of motion is coming back. Now it’s just getting the strength back, that’s the biggest thing.”
Judge, a two-time All-Star, has registered a .285/.398/.548 slash line in 99 games this season. He has also hit 26 home runs and tallied 61 RBIs.
“Any time you’re not playing, it’s tough,” Judge said. “But we have a good team, so I’m just trying to be out there and support them and do anything I can from the bench that can help the guys out.”
