Yankees’ receive amazing Aaron Judge news prior to Wednesday’s game

New York Yankees, Aaron Judge

While New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone projected that he would gain his star sluggers back over the weekend, they manage to return a few days early to the active roster. On Tuesday, the Yankees featured both Gio Urshela and Giancarlo Stanton, and on Wednesday, they reinstated Aaron Judge from the injured list.

After a 20-6 whopping of the Toronto Blue Jays in the Bronx, the Yankees felt the need to bring in more offensive firepower. Judge, who has been nursing a calf strain the past few weeks, was dominating the MLB before his injury.

Prior to going down, he was hitting .292 with a 1.081 on-base plus slugging and nine homers. While he has only played 18 games, less than half of the 2020 campaign, he immediately gives the Yankees a higher probability of making a playoff run.

The Yankees are currently on a six-game winning streak, coming off a five-game losing streak earlier last week. The recent spark in productivity came just after hitting .500 in the win-loss column.

An exciting turn of events, fellow slugger Luke Voit stated that the Bronx Bombers are back and teams are fearing them once again. Their intimidation factor is something to be considered, as they simply didn’t have the gusto with their top players out. Now, they are only missing Gleyber Torres at shortstop, who, according to Boone, would be playing if it was a playoff contest.

Giving Torres the extra time off is essential, as the Yankees continue to perform and look solid. Hopefully, they can continue their stretch of victories and climb to the top five seeded teams in the American League. The Yankees will walk out Gerrit Cole on Wednesday evening to extend theIr streak, and he’s currently hosting a 3.20 ERA over 59 innings pitched. In his most recent start against the Orioles, he lasted 7.0 innings and allow just two hits and zero runs, tallying nine strikeouts.

New York Yankees: Good news and bad news following embarrassing loss to Baltimore

New York Yankees: Good news and bad news following embarrassing loss to Baltimore

Gerrit Cole, New York Yankees

The New York Yankees suffered another embarrassing loss against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday evening. With the offense putting up a putrid one run, starting pitcher Gerrit Cole was also batted around in the sixth inning to extend the Orioles lead to 6-0. Cole lasted 6.0 innings, tossing 101 pitchers. He allowed four hits and five runs, striking out 10 batters.

Offensively, the Yankees were only able to record four total hits, two of which came from Clint Frazier.

FINAL SCORE: 6-1

Good news and bad news for the New York Yankees:

GOOD NEWS:

The good news, starting shortstop Gleyber Torres returned to the team on Saturday. He posted one hit over three at-bats, and also earned a walk. It was a positive thing for him to get on base and start his return strong, but the remainder of the Yankees’ offense failed to produce. Catcher Gary Sanchez struck out four times over four at-bats, lowering his average to .130. At this point, the Yankees may consider starting Erik Kratz in a regular role, considering Sanchez’s offense is nonexistent.

Despite giving up a home run within his first three pictures, relief arm Miguel Yajure tossed two impressive innings. He recorded two strikeouts and allowed two hits.

In other news, the Bombers kept Deivi Garcia at the alternate site and will utilize him again in the coming days. They also retained Clarke Schmidt as a relief arm in hopes of activating him more frequently with little rest for their more accomplished options.

BAD NEWS:

The bad news remains consistent for the Yankees, as their starting pitching has struggled a bit the past few days and their offense has been quiet. Scoring one run against a young Orioles starter in Keegan Akin was tumultuous at best. While the Yankees started strong in the 2020 season, they are quickly falling behind and could be out of postseason contention if they keep playing like this.

Getting Torres back was a big deal, but they sorely miss their talisman in Aaron Judge. Manager Aaron Boone stated before the game that Giancarlo Stanton was running at about 80% but Judge is behind him in his rehab. He hopes they both will be available for the postseason.
