The Yankees hoped that the crooked injury after Saturday's win over Kansas City on Saturday was not severe.
You should have known better.
Aaron Judge was placed on the 10-day casualty list on Sunday with a charge called "fairly significant" by Aaron Boone.
And although the manager did not want to set Judge's absence in the lead, Boone said it would be a while before the right fielder took any action.
"The next few weeks will only be a big part of the healing process," Boone said.
The judge left Saturday's game in sixth position when he injured himself when he injured himself on a strike to the right. He was clearly uncomfortable when he jogged first and was taken out of the game after a brief visit by coach Steve Donohue. He became the 1
Thairo Estrada was recalled by Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre on Sunday to take on the judge's position on the IL, in part because the infielder was the only healthy player on the 40-man squad ,
Boone expected no further squad moves and insisted that he was okay with Tyler Wade as the team's fourth outfielder. Wade replaced Judge on the right on Saturday, with Clint Frazier starting on Sunday with Brett Gardner in the middle and Mike Tauchman on the left.

A potential replacement will bring Aaron Hicks to Tampa with a lower back injury to continue his rehab, and Boone said he should soon be involved in rehabilitation games.
Giancarlo Stanton (biceps) may "move quickly," although Stanton said he had not started beating the field on Saturday.
And for those who wonder, Jacoby Ellsbury stays in Tampa and does not do much.
"He had several things that did not let him break Boone.
However, none of them will be able to make up for the loss of Richter.
"I expect his leadership to continue to some extent," Boone said. "It's undeniable that this is one of the biggest players in the sport. An all-round player. Great defensive. The way he operates the bases. Obviously he is offensive. So you miss that. That's huge. He will continue to influence his teammates as he does. We will continue to expect that from him. "
This is the third major injury the judge has suffered in parts of four seasons in the Major League.
On September 13, 2016, he suffered a right-sided, right-angle load. He missed 45 games in the last season with a broken chip in his wrist, after he was hit on 26 July by a playing field. The judge remained healthy in 2017 and played 155 games.
