Fatal bad news struck the New York Yankees of the American professional baseball Major League (MLB). ‘Main Gun’ Aaron Judge is out of the team due to an injury.
On the 2nd (Korean time), the MLB official website, MLB.com, said, “Judge was placed on the 10-day injured list (IL) due to right hip pain.” Since registration is applied retroactively from the 29th of last month, the judge can compete from the 9th.
Judge was injured while attempting to steal three bases 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 did head first sliding, but the process was not smooth. Fortunately, his injuries are said to be not serious.
Yankees coach Aaron Boone told MLB.com the reason for his IL listing, saying, “It’s not a major injury (Judge), but I don’t want to continue to play and get injured or affect other parts.”
Even if it’s a small injury, the departure of the judge is a big bad news for the Yankees. Judge led the Yankees’ offense with a batting average of 0.311, 62 homers, 131 RBIs and 133 runs in the regular season last year. Home runs, RBIs, runs scored, on-base percentage (0.425), and slugging percentage (0.686) all led the American League (AL), and batting average was second in the AL.
In particular, the 62 homers that Judge shot was the most home run record in one season by AL and Yankees clubs, surpassing Roger Maris (then Yankees) in 1961.먹튀검증
The Yankees already had Giancarlo Stanton, another big player, out of action due to a left hamstring injury. With the addition of the judge, the weakening of the offensive power became inevitable.
Meanwhile, the Yankees lost 2-3 in the home game against the Cleveland Guardians held at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, USA, feeling the gap between the two players. As a result, the Yankees, who fell into the swamp of 4 consecutive losses, were in danger of collapsing their .500 win rate with 15 wins and 15 losses.
