Share post:

The New York Yankees reinstated outfielder Aaron Judge from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Judge, 31, is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday night when the Yankees continue a three-game series with the visiting Oakland Athletics.

Last year’s American League MVP initially was injured on a head-first slide on April 26 while trying to steal third base in the second inning of a 12-6 win at Minnesota. Judge took two at-bats the next day at Texas before being pulled and landing on the injured list.

“I feel good, I’m ready to go,” Judge said Monday afternoon. “Glad it’s over with and ready to get back to this team.”

After hitting an American League-record 62 homers in 157 games last season, Judge is batting .261 with six homers and 14 RBIs in 26 games.

The Yankees went 4-6 while Judge was sidelined.

The team also placed infielder Oswald Peraza on the 10-day IL with a right ankle sprain. The move is retroactive to Saturday. In 12 games this season, Peraza, 22, is hitting .188 with four runs in 12 games.

Additionally, right-hander Greg Weissert was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Weissert, 28, made four appearances for the Yankees this season, striking out three over 4 1/3 innings. In the minors, he is 1-0 with four saves and a 2.08 ERA in 8 2/3 innings, including 14 strikeouts.
