NEW YORK – If Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge knows when he’ll back back, he’s not saying it.

It’s clear Judge doesn’t want a repeat of last year’s drama.

Judge said twice that he doesn’t have a look at when he will return from what manager Aaron Boone called “a pretty significant” left oblique strain – and he has been locked out of how the Yankees botched his comeback from the injured list last year.

“There’s no need to put on a clock because of what happened with the wrist last year,” Judge said following a 7-6, 1

0-inning win over the Royals at Yankee Stadium. “So, no need to go down that road again.” “/>

And every day that Judge went past the expected timeline, he asked questions of why he wasn’t back.

He doesn’t want to do that again.

right now, ”he said.“ There’s no need for one. Just kind of going based on how I feel and just progress from there. ”The plan currently is for Judge to head to the West Coast with the team Sunday and rehab there. It starts with a long trip Monday with the Angels before heading to San Francisco and Arizona.

The Yankees’ Best Hitter, Judge was batting .288 with five homers, 11 RBI and a .925 OPS in 20 games.

He became the 12th member of the team to land on the injured list, joining stars Giancarlo Stanton, a designated hitter; Gary Sanchez, a catcher; and Luis Severino, their ace starting pitcher.

“It’s tough,” Judge said. “That was one of my goals. I didn’t want to get back on the DL or anything, for example, tough times like this when guys are beat up, I wanted to be out in the trenches with the guys every single day, fighting through some tough times. But it happens and it’s a tough spot. ”Judge said he felt the injury on a sixth-inning swing that resulted in a single.

Judge was asked what he was thinking when he showed clear pain while jogging to first base before getting taken out for a pinch runner.

He said.

“But it wasn’t good. Just because I was thinking about the team and the situation we are going through. I just want to be out there for them. Getting that taken away is tough. ”

He said he’d rest for about a week before being reassessed. He said he didn’t believe the injury was as bad as the right strain he suffered at the end of the 2016 season.

“And out for the rest of the lineup?” going to mean other guys get a chance to get some playing time, to show what they’ve got and step up and produce for us at the highest level, ”Judge said. about, guys getting a chance to go out there and perform. ”
