‘Geopo’ Aaron Judge, who is running first in the American League home run category this season, is out of power due to an injury.

MLB.com reported on the 7th (Korean time) that “Yankees Geopo Judge and left-hander Nestor Cortes are both on the injured list.” Judge injured his right big toe, and Cortés developed shoulder pain.

Judge ran into right field during the Los Angeles Dodgers away game on the 4th and hit the fence during defense in the bottom of the 8th inning. He injured his toe at this time. He has been sidelined since then and ended up on the injured list. It’s a huge power loss for the Yankees.

This is his second injury this season. Judge left at the end of April with a right hip sprain, but returned on the 9th of last month against Oakland. Afterwards, he regained his sense of hitting and was recording a batting average of 2.9, 1 ri, 19 homers and 40 RBIs this season.

He was ranked first in the American League for home runs, but this spot was likely to be taken away. Houston Astros’ “Big Gun” Jordan Alvarez and Los Angeles Angels’ “two-hitter” star Shohei Ohtani hit 16 homers each for second place. They are hitters who have the ability to turn over when unrestrained.

Judge signed a 9-year, $360 million (approximately 478.1 billion won) contract extension with the Yankees this season. He took over as team captain and rose to become a top franchise star. However, he is being held back by a series of injuries.

Director Aaron Boone said, “The most important thing right now is to get rid of the swelling,” adding, “I think it could have been worse. Still, I have a feeling he’ll be fine. I just need some time.” I wasn’t too worried.

Teammate Josh Donaldson wished Judge a speedy recovery and said, “I hope he continues to win until he returns.”메이저놀이터

In the American League home run division, Judge seemed to be dominating with a good hitting feeling with 5 home runs in the last 6 games, but due to an unexpected injury, the home run competition is likely to heat up.
