Aaron Judge on missing All-Star Game: “There are worse things than missing a game”

Major League Baseball’s “superstar” Aaron Judge (31-New York Yankees) has expressed his feelings on missing the All-Star Game.

“Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to Seattle for the All-Star Game on the 12th,” Jersey, who was selected as an All-Star starter for the American League (AL) outfield, said in an interview with the New York Times and other local media on the 11th (KST). “Instead, I will use the time during the All-Star Game to rehabilitate and heal so that I can return to the field for my team and fans,” he said.

The media outlet quoted Jersey as saying that what he misses more than the game itself is the interaction he gets to have with the different players at the event.

“I always look forward to the All-Star Game every year because it gives me a chance to meet the other stars of the league and ask them a lot of questions,” he said. “I ask the rookies in the All-Star Game what it’s like to play in the major leagues and what they’ve learned from that experience.”

“For the veteran players, this could be the last All-Star Game they play in, so we want to learn about the wisdom they’ve gleaned from their long major league careers.”

A native of California, USA, Jersey was drafted by the Yankees in the first round (32nd overall) of the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. His contract was worth $1.8 million at the time.

Judge’s progression in the pros was as quick as expected, and he made his major league debut three years later in August 2016. Since then, he’s become a popular player, earning American League Rookie of the Year honors in 2017 and being named to five All-Star teams. Last year, he was named the American League’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) after posting a stellar .311 batting average with 62 home runs and 131 RBIs.온라인카지노

This year, Judge was also cruising, hitting .291 with 19 home runs and 40 RBIs before his injury. However, he suffered a right toe injury on June 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers when he crashed into the fence after catching J.D. Martinez’s fly ball while playing outfield defense and has not played since.

Regarding his injury and rehabilitation process, Jersey said, “He’s been moving well lately, but I don’t think he’ll be back to his pre-injury full strength.” The implication is that even if he does return, he may be dealing with some minor soreness in the area.

“While it would be more fun and exciting if Judge could participate in the All-Star Game in Seattle, it would be wiser and more prudent for him to spend more time on his rehabilitation after setting the American League single-season record for home runs (62) and winning the MVP award last year,” the source concluded.
