Judge also admitted to deleting a tweet congratulating Astros star Jose Altuve on winning the 2017 Most Valuable Player award.
Altuve won MVP, finishing with 96% of the vote compared to 66% for Judge, who finished in second.
The Yankees slugger has minor right shoulder soreness, but is nothing serious, as he describes above.
Judge finished 2017 hitting .284 with 52 home runs and 114 runs batted in, as a rookie. Altuve had a strong campaign, rounding out with a .384 batting average with 24 home runs and 82 runs batted in.
It doesn't look like the Astros sign-stealing story is going away anytime soon...
