‘After 4 days of worrying,’ the 483.3 billion home run king went on the injured list after 2 years, buttock pain

 Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees ended up on the injured list (IL).

The Yankees team listed his jersey on the 10-day IL, complaining of right hip strain, ahead of a home game against the Cleveland Guardians on the 2nd (Korean time). And they called up Triple-A outfielder Franch Cordero.

This IL listing is retroactively applied from the 29th of last month, and the jersey can return on the 9th.

“I think we’ve considered it a minor injury, but we don’t want him to go out and play with risks and make the injury worse. Injuries can get worse. That’s what we care about,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

Director Boon added, “I’m not in bad shape right now. The speed of recovery is good and it can be said that it’s a small problem. But it’s not just that I’m in IL, but I need to get an accurate diagnosis of what kind of condition I’m in.” It means to recover and return to a perfect state.

Judge was placed in Group 3 of batting practice ahead of the game against Cleveland that day, but did not appear on the ground. Instead, he warmed up and practiced throwing at the indoor range.

It’s been about a year and 10 months since the coronavirus infection in July 2021 that Judge came to the IL. As for common injuries, August 2020, when he injured his calf, was the most recent IL listing. Last year, he appeared in 157 games in good health without any major injuries, posting a batting average of 0.311, 62 homers, and 131 RBIs, and was named MVP. He broke Roger Marys’ 1961 American League record for most home runs in a season.

However, this season, there are signs that the evil spirit of the early injury is reviving. It’s the seventh time Jersey’s owed an IL since his 2016 big league debut. In the meantime, he suffered injuries to his obliques, wrists and calves. Because of his frequent injuries, Judge played full-time only two seasons: 2017, when he won the Rookie of the Year title, and 2022, the MVP season.

Judge was replaced at the end of the 4th inning defense after digesting two at-bats in an away game against Texas on the 28th. It was because of his hip pain.안전놀이터

Previously, he sprained his right wrist while attempting to steal third base against the Minnesota Twins on the 27th, and the Yankees believe that his right side and leg were also strained. In other words, the decision to go to the IL was made after agonizing over and over again for the next four days.

Judge has a batting average of 0.261 (24 hits in 92 at-bats), 6 home runs, 14 RBIs, 18 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.863 in 26 games this season. Based on the 29 games the team played, last year it marked a batting average of 0.290, 10 home runs, 22 RBIs, 21 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.982 in 28 games.

It is true that this year it is difficult to expect as much performance as last year. As of this day, he is tied for 17th in the American League in home runs. Still, it is expected that he will be able to hit 40 home runs.

Judge was appointed captain after renewing a free agency contract with the Yankees last winter for 9 years and 360 million dollars (approximately 483.3 billion won).
