2.) Will Aaron Judge be ready for Opening Day?

After initial reports stated that Aaron judge had simply begun hitting off the tee, video suggests that he has been partaking in live betting reps against Gerrit Cole and others.

Judge is rehabbing from a stress fracture in a rib suffered last September, and the extra time to heal has been extremely beneficial for his progress. The Yankees are expecting him to return for Opening Day in late July, but nothing is set in stone just yet. His participation in live at-bats does suggest that he could be ready to start, but he must begin to practice in the outfield before the Yankees can confidently slide him into the right-field position.
