Yankees 'Very Optimistic' Aaron Judge Will Be Ready Opening Day Despite Injury

The New York Yankees could be near full strength when the 2020 regular season begins.

General manager Brian Cashman told reporters Tuesday they are "very optimistic" that Aaron Judge's "proclamation that he would be ready for Opening Day and in the lineup would ring true."

Cashman added that Giancarlo Stanton "should be a full go" at designated hitter, but the 2017 National League MVP hasn't done any outfield drills as he recovers from the strained calf suffered in February.
