The New York Yankees have recently been linked to Juan Soto, 25, in the trade market. Eventually, they will need to bolster their outfield, even if it’s not Soto.
On Thursday (Nov. 14), New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman commented on the timeline for Judge’s return.
According to Cashman, there is no timetable for Judge’s return. Everything is up in the air because he has to go through rehabilitation and even rehab games.
There is still hope that he will return at some point in the second half, but nothing is guaranteed.
As a result, some believe that Jersey is effectively out for the season. This is where Derek Jeter’s hopes of signing Soto came from earlier.
At the time of his injury, it appeared that he could return immediately. On June 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Jersey slammed his right foot into the fence while fielding.토스카지노
He then left the game with a right big toe contusion. But the ligaments weren’t cooperating, and he ended up tearing a ligament in his big toe, sidelining him for an extended period of time.
Jersey is a valuable commodity. The New York Yankees signed him to a nine-year, $360 million contract before the season. That’s an average of $40 million per year.
So there’s no way he’ll be forced to return. He has eight more seasons to play. He’ll return when everything is clear.
In 49 games prior to his injury, Judge batted .291 with 19 home runs, 40 RBI, 42 runs scored, 51 runs batted in, a .404 OPS and 1.078 slugging percentage.
Before his injury, he was on pace to win back-to-back American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards. However, the American League MVP is now the sole possession of Shohei Ohtani, 29.
