Aaron Judge took exception with Josh Donaldson's "Jackie" comment to Tim Anderson of the Chicago White Sox this past weekend.
Donaldson was suspended one game for the incident.
"Joke or not, I just don't think it's the right thing to do there," Judge said.
He later said that Donaldson addressed the New York Yankees regarding the controversy, but Judge again emphasized that Donaldson in his estimation made a poor decision.
"JD is a pro," Judge said. "So he talked to us and filled us in on what he was referring to, about I guess a 2019 interview that T.A. did. But still, I just don't think it was the right move at all. But he got a suspension. Time to move on."
