Yankees GM Gives Encouraging Update On Aaron Judge After His Latest Practice Session At Coors Field, Fans Are Ecstatic

Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees’ injured captain, has been doing his best to return to the field in order to help his team recover from the dead slump. However, despite positive progress, the Yanks have stayed away from providing a return timeline. It has been close to six weeks since the unfortunate incident at Dodgers stadium took place, and yet the fans are being kept in the dark.

Meanwhile, ahead of the resumption of the second half, rumors flew that Aaron Judge could be back right after the All-Star break ends on Friday. However, the Yankees’ general manager, Brian Cashman, quickly shot down the rumor. He said that Judge still has to cross several steps before aiming for a return. In the meantime, the GM has come forward with another update, but his time is a little more encouraging than the previous one.

New York Yankees captain Aaron Judge surprised the fans over the weekend. He took up batting practice and outfield training drills at Coors Field. He is currently traveling with the team to Colorado for the road trip. Judge did a crucial hitting session on Friday and Saturday. The swings looked absolutely natural. It could not even remotely suggest that the slugger is batting half-healthy. Naturally, the captain’s latest progress has encouraged the Yankees general manager, Brian Cashman. He spoke to Jim Bowden of the Athletic and provided a positive update on Judge’s recovery status.

Brian Cashman said that Aaron Judge is hitting and running well. By the early looks of it, he seems to be heading in the right direction with respect to his recovery plan. However, the team will get a better idea of his actual status once the captain returns back from the road trip. But for now, Judge is responding well to the treatment, and his progress has been highly encouraging. Earlier, the GM suggested that Judge will need to hit a lot of steps before he could return to the lineup, including rehab games. However, it seems the slugger’s latest training sessions in Colorado have changed Cashman’s perspective.

Yankees-hitting beast Aaron Judge once again put his unimaginable power on display. Batting with half fitness, Judge’s one particular swing broke the Coors light sign at Colorado’s baseball stadium. Chris Kirschner of The Athletic posted the photo of the broken sign on the micro-blogging site Twitter and left the fans in complete awe. The fans bombarded the comment section with praises to hail Aaron Judge for his staggering power.

The 6-foot7 beast is worthy of contributing to the Yankees even in half health. However, the protocols would not allow Aaron Judge to return unless he is fully healed. In the meantime, Judge can do nothing but look at his team and let him down. With the latest series loss to the Rockies, the Yankees are tied for the last spot in East Division with the Red Sox.
