Yankees activate Aaron Judge off DL; still not available to hit

The New York Yankees activated Aaron Judge from the disabled list Friday, but the slugger still is not yet ready to hit in a game, manager Aaron Boone said.

Judge will be available for baserunning purposes and in the outfield, as needed, while he continues his rehab from a chip fracture in his right wrist.

A Dodgers-Astros rematch? Sorry, but we can do better. From classics revisited to powerhouse showdowns, we look at the best — and worst — 2018 Fall Classic possibilities.

Boone told reporters that the team is a couple of days from making a decision on at-bats for Judge in a simulated game, a step before he will hit in a game. The Yankees want Judge to work off any rust before the postseason.

Judge took live batting practice Monday — the first time he had faced live pitching of any kind since suffering the injury, which occurred when he was hit by a fastball from Royals pitcher Jakob Junis on July 26.

The Yankees were 25-20 in Judge’s absence.
