  Aaron Judge injury update: Yankees All-Star says fractured wrist 'could have been a lot worse' Yankees slugger Aaron Judge "happy" with team's timeline of three weeks for his return from a fractured wrist. Judge sustained a bone chip fracture to his right wrist Thursday night when he was hit by a fastball from Royals starter Jake Junis in the first inning. “I feel good,” Judge told reporters Friday, per the Daily News. “A little soreness today waking up, but overall I feel good. It could have been a lot worse. I’m happy with what they diagnosed — three weeks. It’s time to go to work and get better.” Judge is wearing a soft cast and is not expected to have surgery.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman didn’t acquire Lance Lynn on Monday to be insurance against J . A . Happ being diagnosed with hand, foot and mouth disease on Tuesday. However, the 31-year-old Lynn was attractive to the Yankees because he offered rotation and bullpen protection.

Boone said Happ 's symptoms were subsiding and he was hopeful that Happ would rejoin the rotation and start on Thursday. But that may not be soon enough to keep the Yankees hopes of winning the American League East from sinking.

J.A. Happ is nearing his return to the mound.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone provided an update on the left-hander's status Monday, saying the team has received encouraging news regarding his hand, foot and mouth disease.

"Good news," Boone said, via NJ.com. "He's out of the woods virus wise. Not contagious."

The team expects to activate Happ from the 10-day disabled list Thursday when he's first eligible with the hope to have him start the Yankees' four-game series against the Rangers that night.

"The idea will be that if everything goes well here in the next couple of days that he'd be in line to start for us Thursday," Boone added.
