Aaron Judge held out of Sunday's Yankees lineup with back spasms


Aaron Judge was out of Sunday’s Yankees lineup due to back spasms, which started flaring up ahead of Saturday’s game according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

“He woke up yesterday with it being pretty sore," Boone said. "Was able to get treatment and obviously able to get through the game."

Judge was 1-for-5 with a run scored Saturday. He was set to get treatment before and during the game could be available as a pinch-hitter on Sunday, but Boone said he would prefer to give Judge the full day if possible ahead of Monday’s off-day.

Clint Frazier replaced Judge in right field, with Miguel Andujar in left.
