It appeared that Yankees sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton each made it through Saturday’s game without Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre without an incident.
Judge went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Stanton went hitless in four at-bats with three whiffs.
Judge (left oblique strain) played DH for the second straight night while Stanton (left calf strain) was in left field.
Before a 8-4 win over the White Sox, manager Aaron Boone said Judge would likely play right field with Triple-A on Sunday. Stanton was still on track to return to the Yankees for Tuesday, Boone said.
Boone was asked if it might be tempting to just immediately call up Stanton rather than wait, considering he’s hit four home runs on his rehab stint.
“No,” Boone said. “Trying to be pretty disciplined with the plan, with making sure (he’s healthy). The fact that he feels good is a good thing. But now it’s just about building him up and getting the back-to-back rigors and how your body responds to that and obviously coming back from some soft tissue stuff, making sure he’s running a lot and getting his different defensive work. (Saturday), he’s playing in left field. No real temptation knowing especially that it’s around the corner now.”
