Yankees OF Judge likely out for regular season with strain

NEW YORK (AP) Yankees rookie right fielder Aaron Judge is likely done for the regular season because of a strained oblique.

New York general manager Brian Cashman made the announcement Wednesday.

Judge strained his right side Tuesday night taking a swing for the AL playoff contenders during a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The 6-foot-7 Judge homered in his first major league at-bat on Aug. 13. The 24-year-old was hitting .179 with four home runs and 10 RBIs, while striking out 42 times in 84 at-bats.

Rob Refsnyder figures to play a lot in right field with Judge out. The Yankees also recalled outfielder Mason Williams from Triple-A before Wednesday's game against the Dodgers. Williams made his big league debut last year and has been in the minors this season.
