Report: Yankees expect Judge to return on Friday

The New York Yankees expect slugging outfielder Aaron Judge to return to action Friday against the Baltimore Orioles, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman.

The expected move is barring any sort of setback during Judge’s rehab from an injured toe, Sherman adds. Judge, who’s playing in simulated games in Florida, has progressed to live at-bats and running the bases.

New York has received positive reports about Judge’s progress thus far, with the slugger requesting a return for the Subway Series against the New York Mets. The Yankees decided to take a more cautious approach, however.

Judge hasn’t played since June 3 after crashing into a bullpen door in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

The 2022 American League MVP was hitting .291/.404/.674 with 19 home runs and 40 RBIs in 49 games before the injury.

The Bronx Bombers have struggled without their star slugger, going 18-23 and falling into last place in the AL East.
