Aaron Judge was placed on the injured list.
On the 2nd (Korean time), the New York Yankees club said, “Jerger complains of pain in his right hip and is placed on the 10-day injured list (IL).”
Previously, Judge was injured while attempting to steal third base against the Minnesota Twins on the 27th of last month, and has not appeared on the field since being replaced during the game the next day.
It is also the first time in a year and 10 months since Judge was infected with the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) in July 2021 that he was put on the injured list.
Judge showed great performance last season with a batting average of 0.311, 62 homers and 131 RBIs in 157 games.
In particular, he broke the American League record for most home runs in one season (61), which was achieved by Roger Maris in 1961, in 61 years, and won the American League MVP.
Afterwards, ahead of this season, he signed a 9-year, $360 million (483.3 billion won) super-large contract with the Yankees, and at the same time became the captain of the team. 크크크벳
