Aaron Judge has hit off a tee for the first time since straining his left oblique on April 20.
"He's doing really well," Aaron Boone said. "He actually hit off the tee yesterday, doing some dry swings and obviously you see him throwing and running and moving a little bit outside. Everything is going well. He's not having issues with any of that."
Judge also took some fly balls in the outfield prior to the New York Yankees' game on Tuesday.
"Now he just continues to build up the slow, steady progress from a hitting standpoint, which is obviously the biggest thing with that injury," Boone said. "It's been slow and steady, but it has been steady, and that's been the good thing. He has responded really well to everything. I feel like he's at a pretty good place right now as he really starts to ramp up baseball activities."
