Yankees All-Star Judge suffers chip fracture in right wrist
New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering a chip fracture in his right wrist.
MLB All-Star Judge will be re-evaluated in three weeks after sustaining the injury against the Kansas City Royals, the Yankees announced on Thursday.
No surgery has been recommended, though it will be three weeks before Judge can swing a bat in a game situation.
Judge left Thursday's 7-2 victory after being hit by a pitch from Royals starter Jake Junis in the first inning.
