Yankees manager Boone hopes Judge can return from injury in 3 weeks

Aaron Judge injury: Yankees star leaves after HBP

At the time, the visit seemed innocuous. Given the proximity of the fracture to Judge's hamate bone, the 2017 AL MVP runner up could've faced a considerably more significant stay on the disabled list and surgical fix if the pitch had caused a hamate fracture.

Judge was not fine.

The Yankees announced after tonight's game that an MRI revealed a chip fracture in Aaron Judge's right wrist - specifically, in the ulnar styloid bone.

The team said he will not require surgery but estimated it will be three weeks before he is able to swing a bat.

The pitch was a 93 miles per hour fastball, the target low and outside.

Late Thursday night, Junis, 25, had explained his pitch in a postgame interview in the visitors clubhouse, under the assumption that Judge, 26, was not injured. Judge initially stayed in the game, but was pinch-hit for by Miguel Andujar in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Judge was struck by a pitch during the Yankees' 7-2 win over Kansas City on Thursday and underwent an MRI and CT scan following the incident. Manager Aaron Boone told reporters Judge's X-Ray at the stadium provided unclear results.

That said, Judge is in the midst of yet another brilliant season, hitting.285/.398/.548 with 26 home runs.

"(Hitting coach Marcus Thames) was down with him and hitting with him a little bit and he just said we didn't feel like he had the right kind of strength behind his last swing", Boone said.
