Aaron Judge (rib) starting in right field, batting second for Yankees Monday night
The New York Yankees announced that Aaron Judge (rib) would be starting at right field and batting second in tonight's intrasquad game.
Judge was limited during spring training with a stress fracture in one of his ribs, but his status as a starter here indicates that the team has no concerns with their star's health. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, he should be a full go for the 2020 season.
numberFire currently projects Judge to bat 0.272 with 13 home runs, 37 runs, 32 RBI and 1 stolen base during the abbreviated 2020 season.
