Yankees no longer guessing about when Aaron Judge will be ready
Aaron Judge’s recovery from a fractured wrist is taking longer than initially expected, which has left the New York Yankees done making guesses about his status.
When Judge first exited the Yankees’ July 26 game against the Royals after being hit by a pitch, the team projected Judge would be able to resume swinging in three weeks. It’s been just about a month since then and Judge still isn’t swinging. The Yankees are done making predictions now.
Aaron Judge (right wrist fracture) has not resumed swinging a bat. Aaron Boone said that he is "optimistic that it will happen at some point, but when that is, we've stopped guessing on that."

Neil Walker has been the recipient of extra playing with Judge sidelined. Judge is batting .285 with a .947 OPS this season. As long as he’s able to return prior to the postseason, the Yankees should be in good shape.
