NEWS NOW: New York Yankees Coach Aaron Boone Has A Misunderstanding With Star Player Aaron Judge, Says He Is No Longer…

The Yankees are taking precautions to maintain the health of their prized player, Aaron Judge.

With Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees are exercising caution at spring training.

Even though Yankees MVP Aaron Judge left the game on Sunday after just two at-bats, there isn’t now cause for concern.

Judge informed Bryan Hoch of that while he is not in the lineup on Monday either, this is part of the plan.

According to Judge, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone informed him that he wanted to keep him fresh by splitting time with newcomer Trent Grisham given where the baseball calendar currently stands.

Judge is also “beat up” from his spring workload and will not appear in games until Wednesday at the earliest, as Boone told reporters this morning in Clearwater.

While it is a bit concerning that Judge is already feeling the physical effects this early on in camp. he is good with the plan to give his body rest, as he is aware that there is a long season ahead.

“I was just splitting it with [Trent] Grisham.” Judge said: “[Boone] talked to me before BP. He kind of said, ‘Hey, I need to catch you. I’ve got Grish’ behind you. You cool with two [at-bats]? I said, ‘Man, what is it, March 10? I’m good with whatever you got.”

Judge, 31, has dealt with injury issues in the past, and the Yankees have suffered without him. Last season, the American League home run record holder missed close to two months of action after tearing ligaments in his toe as a result of running through the fence at Dodger Stadium to make a spectacular catch.

With Judge sidelined, the Yankees were forced to rely on depth pieces such as Jake Bauers and Billy McKinney to fill the void, which was unrealistic. The Yankees, who finished 82-80, could have possibly cracked a Wild Card spot in the very least had they not lost Judge for a significant period of time.

In order to keep Judge healthy for the entire season, the Yankees are therefore taking it slow with him. If both Judge and Juan Soto, two of the best sluggers in the league, are healthy in 2024, they know they have a decent chance of contending for the World Series this year.

According to numerous reports on Monday, the Yankees are sending Cy Young Award-winning starter Gerrit Cole for an MRI on his throwing elbow. It is beyond their means to lose even one of their celebrities, much less both of them at once.
