The thought of hulking Yankees slugger Aaron Judge hitting in the heart of a lineup is enough to shake many pitchers. But what about to start a game? It's possible, manager Aaron Boone told reporters before the Yankees' 7-2 win over the Tigers at Joker Marchant Stadium on Tuesday. "I'd say it's possible," Boone said. "I've thought of it. I wouldn't necessarily say it's likely. But something like that I would view as possible. It was considered. Something we've talked about." Judge has never led off a game in his big-league career. He said he might have done it in Little League, "but it's been a while." "It doesn't matter if I'm hitting first or last," the reigning American League Rookie of the Year said when asked if his approach changes depending on his spot in the batting order.
