New York Yankees' slugger Aaron Judge was drilled in the right wrist by a 93-mph fastball in the first inning of the team's game against the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately, his immediate future is in peril after being hit in the wrist by a pitch in Thursday night's game.
The Yankees are 4.5 games behind the Red Sox in the AL East, but NY is comfortably in control of the top Wild Card slot in the AL - but Yankees fans aren't taking the news very well.
The severity of the injury is unclear at this time. The Yankees later announced Judge left the premises for an MRI and CT scan at New York Presbyterian.
We'll update Judge's condition when it becomes known.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: "For legal reasons, the force has taken the decision not to name the defendants". It is not yet known whether he has suffered longer term implications as a result of his injuries.
If he misses extended time, the team would likely insert Clint Frazier into his place in the starting lineup. In two full seasons with the Yankees, Judge has been an All-Star in both seasons. The Yankees hope they won't be forced into such drastic action, but it's not something that should be ruled out entirely.
And winning the AL East is a very big deal.
The New York Yankees have been adding to their roster this week, but the most notable transaction will likely be what they're losing for at least the next few weeks.
So leave it to NY fans to get creative - before they even knew the final diagnosis - and hold a "candlelight vigil" for Judge.
