Aaron Judge, the Yankees’ right fielder, set to make his return against the Pirates on Wednesday

After a nine-day absence due to an abdominal injury, Aaron Judge is returning to the New York Yankees lineup. The team announced his return when they posted their starting lineup for Wednesday’s spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Judge had been out since March 10 when he experienced discomfort during a game against the Atlanta Braves and underwent an MRI on his abdomen the following day.

This season, Judge is looking to bounce back from missing 42 games last year, largely due to an injury he suffered on June 3 when he tore the ligament in his right big toe. Despite his shortened season, Judge still managed to finish with 98 hits, 75 RBI, 37 home runs, and a .267 batting average in 106 games played, marking the lowest batting average of his career at 31 years old.

Judge’s return to the lineup will likely boost the Yankees’ offense and provide a significant power threat in the middle of their lineup. Fans and the team will be eager to see Judge back on the field and hopefully leading the Yankees to success in the upcoming season.
