Judge on track for opener

Waterloo Region Record - - Sports -

TAMPA, FLA. — New York Yan­kees slug­ger Aaron Judge took bat­ting prac­tice for the first time since left shoul­der surgery and said he is on track to play on open­ing day. Judge hit a rookie record 52 home runs last year and was a unan­i­mous pick for Amer­i­can League Rookie of the Year. He said the shoul­der started to bother him around the all­star break but he did not have any in­jec­tions of painkiller. He is a cen­tre­piece of the Baby Bombers’ bat­ting or­der along with Gary Sanchez, a lineup boosted by the ac­qui­si­tion of ma­jor­league home-run cham­pion Gian­carlo Stan­ton from Mi­ami.
