Aaron speaks [url=http://www.padre

NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees star Aaron Judge took another step in his return from a broken right wrist when he played right field for a couple of innings Friday night.The Yankees activated him from the disabled list before the game against Toronto. The team said he is limited for now to defense and pinch running — still no hitting for the slugger.Judge got a big ovation when he trotted to the outfield for the top of the eighth inning. He had not played since July 26 http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … ith-jersey , when he was hit by a pitch from Kansas City’s Jakob Junis.The Yankees initially expected Judge to return in about three weeks.“With the roster, it makes some sense to have him available to, if there’s a spot where we can get him in, to run the bases or play some defense,” New York manager Aaron Boone said before the start of New York’s final regular-season homestand. “He’s getting real close to being an option for us.”Judge on Monday took his first on-field batting practice since the injury. Boone said Friday the team is a couple days from making a decision on at-bats for Judge in a simulated game Cory Spangenberg Jersey , a step before he will hit in a game. Judge has to take more swings and face higher velocity before he hits in a game.“It’s about hopefully getting him enough at-bats to where he can kind of knock off some of that rust, and hopefully that timing comes back sooner rather than later and he gets in a comfortable place as we head into the final week and into October,” Boone said.Judge is hitting .285 with 26 home runs and 61 RBIs. The Yankees entered Friday 26-20 since he got hurt, fading from contention in the AL East but on track to earn a wild card. In discussing Judge’s importance in the clubhouse, Boone echoed the old EF Hutton advertising campaign of the 1970s and ’80s.“When Aaron speaks http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … mer-jersey , people listen,” Boone said.Injured closer Aroldis Chapman is to throw another bullpen session Saturday, a simulated game on Monday and then could be activated in the middle of next week, Chapman has not pitched in a game since Aug. 21 because of left knee tendinitis.“I’m feeling really good right now,” Chapman said through a translator. “No pain and nothing.” Best-Case Landing Spot: Chicago CubsBrad Hand http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … ela-jersey , Jeurys Familia and Britton are already off the board. That leaves contenders targeting low-tier relief rentals or high-leverage arms who will demand an exorbitant trade package due to their long-term deals.Then there's Joakim Soria, the best closer bizarrely falling under the radar.The 34-year-old righty has recorded a 2.56 ERA with 49 strikeouts and 10 walks in 38.2 innings. His 2.15 fielding independent pitching (FIP) ranks 14th among qualified relievers, only 10 of whom have generated a higher rate of infield fly balls than his 20 percent.According Cot's Baseball Contracts, he and the Chicago White Sox have a $10 million mutual option with a $1 million buyout for 2019. Based on last year's free-agent signings, the closer could likely exchange some annual salary for extra job security by inking a two-year deal for around $16-18 million.And even if Soria and Chicago would agree to the mutual extension http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authent … son-jersey , it makes too much sense for a rebuilding team to sell a flourishing veteran reliever who delivered ERAs of 4.05 and 3.70 in 2016 and 2017, respectively.The Yankees already harbored MLB's top bullpen before adding Britton, so no contender will turn down extra relief help at the right price. While the Chicago Cubs claim the fourth-best bullpen ERA (3.28), they also have the fourth-worst strikeout-to-walk ratio (2.08). Per The Athletic's Patrick Mooney, closer Brandon Morrow won't return from the disabled list when eligible on Saturday. He has not worked 45 or more innings in a regular season since 2013.The Cubs and White Sox showed the ability to negotiate a cross-town exchange when the latter sent Jose Quntana to the former last season. The NL contenders should once again solicit a pitching upgrade from the Windy City's AL counterpart.Note: All advanced stats are courtesy of FanGraphs unless otherwise noted.
