It’s been clear for a while Aaron Judge wouldn’t be back in the lineup anywhere close to the three-week window the Yankees had hoped when he fractured his right wrist July 26.
The right fielder still can’t swing a bat and the three-week mark passed last week.
After Sunday’s 10-2 win over Toronto, Judge said it would take four to six weeks for the fracture to heal.
“It’s still fractured,” said Judge, who had the wrist wrapped and had a cortisone shot last week in an attempt to hasten the recovery. “There is still a little bit of pain in there, but that’s what we are trying to get past right now. It takes about four to six weeks for stuff like that to heal so wait for that six weeks.’’
