The Yankees finally got some good news heading into their series with the Orioles, as skipper Aaron Boone said that there's a 'good chance' Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton could be back by next weekend.
New York has been struggling immensely over the last few weeks and are only a game over .500 at 22-21, a shocking mark to just about everyone who saw how this roster looked in the preseason and the first 10 games of the year.
But with all the injuries that piled up again this year, including Judge playing just one game since August 11 and Stanton being out since August 8, this is where the Yankees find themselves with less than three weeks left till the playoffs.
Boone said that the two sluggers are completing their last few sets of rehab and workouts, and getting ready to return to the lineup soon.
"They're finishing up their final progressions," Boone said. "Giancarlo is out there running the bases again today, also hitting out there. So if everything goes well potentially this weekend, we could see them getting so ABs in Scranton and then with us shortly after that."
Boone told reporters Thursday that if all goes as planned, the team would be activating Gio Urshela off the IL on Tuesday, so all could be right in the Yankees clubhouse in the very near future.
