Yankees OF Aaron Judge hit in the batting cage and fielded fly balls in the outfield on Saturday, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
"We're still continuing on," manager Aaron Boone said of Judge one day after he hit outside for the first time since landing on the DL with a chip fracture in his right wrist.
On Friday, Judge hit off a tee and also participated in three rounds of soft toss from 25 feet with hitting coach Marcus Thames, according to The Post's George A. King III.
Though it doesn't seem like much, Judge was spraying the ball all over the field as well as showcasing his power with homers to center field. And most importantly, Judge didn't seem bothered by his wrist at all.
On Wednesday, Judge was doing tee-and-toss drills indoors, and manager Aaron Boone noted that positive steps from the reigning AL Rookie of the Year is always good to see.
"Another positive step forward and responded well," Boone said. "He was able to pop the ball so we will continue to do that through the weekend."
In 99 games for the Yankees this season, Judge is hitting .285 with 26 home runs and 61 RBI
