TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Aaron Judge has not given up on being ready for the the New York Yankees’ opener at Baltimore on March 26 but still does not know the cause of soreness in his right pectoral muscle and shoulder.
The star right fielder said Thursday he has undergone 7-10 tests and more are scheduled.
“Quite a few of the tests are coming back clean,” Judge said. “So, we’re trying to figure out what is going on.”
Judge stopped workouts about a week before spring training after experiencing soreness while swinging, then felt soreness on Feb. 28 while hitting in an indoor cage for the second consecutive day.
Judge, who turns 28 next month, feels fine on some days and experiences discomfort the next.
