TAMPA, Fla. — New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge revealed he had a collapsed lung that has healed and said his broken rib is improving.
Judge had a CT scan on Friday. The Yankees announced two weeks ago that Judge had a stress fracture to his first right rib.
Judge said the scan showed the collapsed lung was gone.
The 27-year-old didn't played in any spring training games because of soreness in his right pectoral muscle and shoulder.
With opening day pushed back into mid-May at the earliest due to the new coronovirus, Judge has more time to recover without missing games.
