Yankees' Aaron Judge (rib) wouldn't have been ready until "summertime"
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge will not be ready for MLB action until the "summertime," according to general manager Brian Cashman.
Judge is dealing with a cracked rib, which was revealed at Spring Training to have occurred late in the 2019 season. Given the MLB's delayed opening due to coronavirus (and while a deal is on the table for the players to sign, it doesn't seem as though an end is necessarily near in sight), it may not matter at all. But had the season started on time, it seems as though the Yankees could have been without their star right fielder for an extended period of time.
In 102 games last season, Judge hit for a .272/.381/.540 slash line with 27 home runs and 55 RBI.
