“He felt it a little bit in his first at-bat there, and it just kind of stayed with him over the next couple innings,” manager Aaron Boone told ESPN during his in-game interview in the bottom of the fourth. “He wanted to keep going through it, but we didn’t want to put him in danger. Hopefully it’s something that subsides in a little bit here, and we can get him back in there tomorrow.”

Judge called for the trainer during his first at-bat in the first inning and received some drops in his eye, leading to wonder if it was a vision issue of some sort. Judge ended up striking out swinging in that at-bat, and then striking out looking in the third before being replaced by Brett Gardner defensively.

His loss, even if just for the game where they were trailing 4-2, is a huge blow to the Yankees’ lineup given this:

It also shortens the Yankees’ bench, leaving Tyler Wade as the only possibility to substitute in for defense in the outfield if the Yankees choose to replace Giancarlo Stanton, who started in left field, at any point.
