Aaron Judge was basically playing the 2023 season on easy mode after a stellar MVP campaign last year, but things came to a grinding halt after a freak injury when the New York Yankees faced the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The reigning American League MVP made a breathtaking catch during a game at Dodger Stadium on June 3rd, but it came at a cost. He slammed into the right field bullpen fence and fell to the ground as he made the grab, tearing a ligament in a toe.

Judge was placed on the injured list and has yet to return to the lineup as we get set to head into the all-star break. We still don’t have a clear return date for the slugger.
