Yankees' Judge out 2nd straight day with stiff neck
July 12, 2020
NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees slugger Aaron Judge was held out of action for a second straight day Sunday due to a stiff neck.
The 2017 AL Rookie of the Year was scratched from a simulated game Saturday after waking up with a sore neck, and the right fielder was not included in either lineup for an intrasquad scrimmage Sunday.
New York manager Aaron Boone said Judge got treatment at Yankee Stadium on Sunday and was improving.
"Just thought it was better not to push through it today," Boone said.
The Yankees are set to open a pandemic-shortened season July 23 at Washington.
