The New York Yankees have already begun dipping into their farm system as the injuries continue to mount. With Miguel Andujar, Greg Bird, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks all out with different ailments, the Yanks simply cannot afford to lose any more players field players.
The New York Yankees are in even more trouble:
Slugger Aaron Judge left Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Royals after seemingly straining a back muscle after singling to right field. He was clearly gimpy coming out of the batter’s box and was immediately removed for further evaluation.
Judge had already homered once in the game and was fueling another scoring inning.
Here’s the clip of the injury:

Judge swung the bat normally but a tweak of a muscle is likely the diagnosis. Mentions of an oblique strain have vibrated after he was pulled. The Yankees are now completely overhauled in the outfield after the departure of Judge.
The cameras picked up Aaron cursing before going into the clubhouse, indicating that this injury could be more significant than initially assumed.
