Aaron Judge out again as Yankees mystery lingers

The Yankees have been especially vague about what is ailing Judge and Boone said on Wednesday he’d hoped to have the right fielder back for Thursday’s series finale at Camden Yards.

BALTIMORE — Aaron Judge will miss his second straight game on Thursday after leaving Tuesday’s win over the Orioles with what Aaron Boone called lower body soreness.

The Yankees have been especially vague about what is ailing Judge, and Boone had said on Wednesday he hoped to have the right fielder back for Thursday’s series finale at Camden Yards.

“He’s doing well. He’ll be available as a pinch-hitter and in a big spot [Thursday],” Boone said prior to Thursday’s game.

It’s the second time this season Judge has missed consecutive games. He also sat back-to-back games over three days with left side soreness, which Judge blamed on taking too many swings working in the cage while he was serving as a DH on April 4.

Last year, Judge had two stints on the IL due to a strained calf.
