New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, who was sidelined with a right big toe injury, seems to need more time to return.먹튀검증
Aaron Boone, manager of the Yankees, said in an interview with local media such as ‘AP’ ahead of an away game against the Boston Red Sox on the 17th (Korean time) that Judge received a second autologous platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP injection) treatment.
Judge injured his right big toe in the process of colliding with an outfield fence while defending right field in an away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 4.

After that, I received PRP injection treatment once, and this time I received the second treatment. Not a good situation.
In this regard, director Boon explained the background of receiving the second injection treatment, saying, “I am still feeling pain because of another ligament that was injured at that time.” He added, “I won’t be doing any baseball-related activities for the next 48 hours, but my condition is improving.”
PRP injections are a treatment modality that helps treat ligament injuries. Pitchers who have injured elbow ligaments often choose to avoid Tommy John surgery.
Director Boone said, “Any time you injure a ligament, it will take time to recover. PRP injections speed it up,” he said, hoping that the injection treatment would help.
When asked if Judge had a chance to return before the All-Star break, he said, “I think there’s a chance. You can come back in a week, or you can come back in four days. First of all, I have to go to the point where I move my body and do activities related to baseball.”
It is not easy to anticipate the time of return. In this regard, MLB.com said that the club had no choice but to be cautious, citing the case of a wrist injury in 2018 that expected a return three weeks later and only returned in mid-September.
Aaron Judge, who won the American League MVP last season, has a batting average of 0.291, an on-base percentage of 0.404, a slugging percentage of 0.674, 19 homers and 40 RBIs in 49 games this season.
