The Yankees are not concerned with Aaron Judge's post-injured list slump.
Though Judge is 0-for-10 with four strikeouts in three games since returning from an oblique strain that sidelined him for two months, manager Aaron Boone knows what Judge is capable of.
"Judge is about the last guy I worry about," Boone told reporters after Sunday's loss to the Astros. "It's truly a matter of time. When he locks it in real good, you know it's gonna be on base and power for days."
The 2017 American League Rookie of the Year and MVP runner-up, Judge was slashing .288/.404/.521 before he went on the IL in mid-April.
"He's obviously not locked in yet," Boone said.
He went 0-for-4 in his return Friday night, went 0-for-2 with a walk and two runs scored on Saturday and went 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout on Sunday.
Perhaps Judge finds his rhythm when the Yankees begin a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, a team against which Judge is slashing .300/.420/.669 with 14 home runs and 29 RBIs in 37 career games.
"I feel like he's finding his timing right now and it's a lot closer than the results, probably,'' Boone said.
