Aaron Judge says his fractured rib is improving, but revealed to reporters that he also dealt with a partially collapsed lung.
Two weeks ago, Aaron Boone said the rib injury was why Judge had been suffering tightness in his shoulder and pectoral area, which limited his baseball activities since early February.
The New York Yankees never disclosed the injury, but Judge said a CT scan Friday the lung had fully healed.
"The pneumothorax came back completely gone, which a good thing," Judge said. "Good to go, which means I can fly if I needed to go home. A little thing on the lung that we were having a little issue with, but that was all healed up. ... The bone is healing the way it should be."
Judge said he would have another test in a few weeks "and go from there."
