New York Yankees rookie outfielder Aaron Judge has left tonight’s contest with the Dodgers with a right oblique strain . 

Aaron Judge has been removed from Tuesday night’s contest between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers with a right oblique strain .

During an at-bat in the bottom of the fourth, Judge winced after a swing on a foul. Manager Joe Girardi and the team’s trainer checked on him but the 6’7″ outfielder remained in the ballgame after refusing medical assistance.

He walked later in the at-bat.

Replacing him in the lineup is Jacoby Ellsbury, moving from center to left is Brett Gardner, and moving to right in Rob Refsnyder. Rob Refsnyder.

According to Meredith Marakovits, Judge has suffered a right oblique strain and will undergo an MRI tomorrow.

Judge is slashing .181/.258/.349 with an OPS of .607 during his first 27 games in the majors but his power has the ability to carry the lineup to utter perfection when hot. Obviously, New York will miss his bat in there notwithstanding the struggles.
