    Aaron Judge is being sent for testing on his injured right shoulder.

    Judge had been slowly ramping up his baseball activities in recent days but this news indicates a setback. If any abnormalities are found during tests it would definitely put him in jeopardy of missing Opening Day, which is less than 30 days away now. Judge came to camp early and seemed fine at first, then developed "crankiness and soreness" in the shoulder per manager Aaron Boone. The slugger missed two months of action last season due to an oblique injury but mashed when healthy enough to play. He batted .272/.381/.540 with 27 home runs and 55 RBI in 102 games.

    It's basically the twilight zone at this point.

    There’s no chance everything is fine and he’s ready for opening day. Recent history indicates that he’ll be out for multiple months.

    He needs to drastically change whatever training regimen that he is doing.

    The whole organization does.

    We had four injuries before we played a game.

    These dudes are playing a game where you can run around with a dip in and somehow think they need to be weight lifters. It’s so stupid. Mets had the same issues for years, Yankees now too.

    Training/conditioning is obviously an issue, but I think some of these guys are injury prone to begin with.

    Stanton and Hicks can't stay on the field. Severino is a mess and Paxton's injury woes were well-known before he was acquired. Judge and Sanchez spend substantial time on the IL every season. And then there's Montgomery and Andujar who basically missed all of last year season.

    Injury history rarely scares away Cashman from acquiring or extending players, but it's absolutely something he needs to consider going forward. In some ways it's probably too late since Stanton and Hicks are signed long-term, and no doubt Judge will be extended - we will need a ton of outfield depth for the foreseeable future.

    Judge has stress fracture in rib. Was he in same car as Buch and Shesty? How??

    “It’s probably an injury that dates back to September when he dove, we think,” Boone said. “Signs are that it shows signs of healing. So we’re going to give it the next couple of weeks and then we’ll retest to show how much healing is going on with that rib.”

    If it happened in September shouldn't it have healed by now? :huh:

    I question whether a guy Judge's size will be able to stay healthy for any significant length of time. Signing him long term would be a huge mistake. Having Torres makes moving on from Judge easier.

    Not necessarily when it comes to stress fractures. His job as a professional athlete has him constantly training, even throughout the off-season. After the dive, they did tests on the shoulder area where he said it hurt. He probably played through some minor pain/soreness until the end of the season, took some time off (like two weeks) which allowed some healing but not for it to heal fully (but dulling any pain) and then he resumed physical activity which stopped any healing (increased the pain). Once he ramped up for spring training, the crack and pain got worse.

    I had a similar issue, although with a totally different part of the body as when I was a college freshman, from hockey, I had stress fractured all toes except the big one, in my right foot. Dr. put me on crutches for 4-6 weeks. The crutches lasted a day because I had to walk over two miles daily to get to classes and the crutches bruised my sides. I ended up hobbling all around for over two months, walking on my heal, before my bones healed. I kept on causing trauma to the area even though I was babying it and that slowed down any healing.

    Honestly, this is mostly on Judge for foolishly ignoring the pain during the off-season. The hope is, the rib fully heals over the next few weeks as he does nothing. Then he comes back a few weeks into the season ready to go.

    This is a great article put out by Forbes today, describing stress fracture of the first rib in relation to Judges injury: Understanding Aaron Judge’s First Rib Stress Fracture

    Judge was a f***ing idiot for not talking to trainers/doctors about the whole thing. He kept on playing it despite continuing to feel discomfort. Had he done something about it in November, he'd be ready by now.

    All you can do is hope he's fully healed from it in a month or two and we can move on, but it's difficult to have confidence that'll happen. I just hope he has surgery sooner rather than later and that there are no complications. I have zero confidence it can be properly rehabbed without surgery and not be a lingering issue all season.

    Who throws a 229 ERA+ when they're 20 years old? The other four were 27-29 years old. If not for off the field issues, Dwight Gooden would have been a Hall of Famer.

    Yankees medical issues have become a complete, unmitigated disaster. From the players being made of glass to the incompetence of the medical staff. It’s hard to take them seriously these days.

    This is kinda dumb sports radio type shit but I’m bored.

    who does a shortened season benefit? What type of team? Teams with decent top end rotation but bad depth?

    It can certainly help the Yankees this year with all the injuries they have already. Allows Judge, Stanton, Hicks, etc. more time to rehab and miss less games than anticipated.

    If a short season can defeat the month of June then I will support it fully as a Mets fan.
