Yankees' Aaron Judge shares alarming injury update

On Tuesday, New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge said he may need "constant maintenance" for the rest of his career due to a ruptured ligament in his big right toe from last season.  

"Anything with injuries like that, you've just got to stay on top of it so it doesn't flare up again or something doesn't happen again," Judge told reporters, as reported by Max Goodman of NJ Advance Media for NJ.com. "We feel good.  

We move and groove out there. We'll attempt to maintain that."  

Today, Judge smashed over the right-field fence at Dodger Stadium while making a catch he may regret for years. The 2023 Yankees improved to 35-25. 

New York was 54-48 when Judge returned in late July, but they finished 82-80 and missed the playoffs. 

After the Yankees acquired All-Star outfielder Juan Soto from the San Diego Padres in December, several experts advised the 6-foot-7 Judge against playing center field full-time. 

With Opening Day a month away, the 2022 American League MVP joked about playing center in 2024.  

"Well, I keep getting hurt in right field, so that’s why I think they moved me to center field so I don’t get hurt over there," Judge remarked Tuesday.
