Aaron Judge knows he dodged a bullet with wrist injury: ‘It could have been a lot worse’

Whether he’s back in the Bronx in three weeks or needs rehab beyond the initial estimate, the Yankees seemed confident Judge’s setback won’t seriously damage the team’s ultimate goal: a World Series. Boone expressed belief that the Yankees’ other hitters would pick up the slack, but that’s a lot to ask for considering Judge leads the Bombers in homers, on base percentage and slugging. The task of replacing that production is made even taller with Clint Frazier still sidelined by a concussion and Brandon Drury traded to Toronto in the J.A. Happ deal. In the first day of Judge’s absence, Neil Walker, hitting .213 with a .594 OPS, was lined up to start before Friday’s postponement due to rain.
