‘Home run king’ Aaron Judge (31, New York Yankees) was eventually placed on the injured list.
According to MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB) on the 2nd (Korean time), the Yankees team moved the jersey to the 10-day injured list (IL). The IL listing date will be applied retroactively to April 29th. Judge suffered a hip injury while sliding head first to third base against the Texas Rangers on the 28th.메이저놀이터
Bad news overlapped for the Yankees team. The Yankees have already lost quite a few key hitters, including infielder Josh Donaldson (right hamstring), outfielder Harrison Bader (oblique muscle), and designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton (left hamstring). As the judge fell, the weight of the center hit line fell even more. The Yankees called up outfielder Franchi Cordero from minor league Triple-A to fill Judge’s vacancy.
Judge played in 157 games last year and recorded a batting average of 0.311 (177 hits in 570 at-bats), 62 homers and 131 RBIs. Roger Maris broke the American League (AL) record for most home runs in a season (61), which was achieved in 1961, in 61 years and won the AL MVP. This season, he recorded a batting average of 0.261 (24 hits in 92 at-bats), 6 homers and 14 RBIs in 26 games before the injury. His career (8 years) in the big leagues was a batting average of 0.283, 226 homers and 511 RBIs.
