The day Yankee fans have been waiting for since July 26 is finally here, sort of. The Yankees activated Judge off of the DL today. However, they will not be using him as a hitter just yet. They will likely use him in a pinch runner situation and in the field for defensive purposes. This will allow them a few more days to determine how to get Judge at-bats, before putting him in a game.
Judge took his first batting practices since going on the DL before games during the Minnesota series. The Yankees expect Judge to be a full-time hitter within a week.
