Panic In NY: Aaron Judge Drilled In The Wrist By 93 MPH Fastball

The state of New York is currently in a state of extreme terror after star outfielder Aaron Judge was forced to leave Thursday’s night game against the Royals.
As you can see below, Jakob Junis went up and in with 93 mph heat that ended catching Judge flush on his right wrist. It’s worth noting this occurred on a 2-2 count, so there probably wasn’t malice behind the pitch:

The good news? Judge stayed in the game and had a second at bat in the third inning (he singled), but was eventually lifted for a pinch hitter to take a trip to the hospital for an MRI.


The Yankees are currently 5.5 games behind the Red Sox in the AL East and hold the top Wild Card spot. They recently bolstered their pitching staff by trading with the Blue Jays for left-handed pitcher JA Happ.
Obviously it would be such shame if this injury torpedoed the Yankees’ playoff hopes. It’s already been nine long seasons since they’ve won the World Series.

Update: The Judge has chip fracture in his wrist.
