Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is back in the lineup, the club announced Tuesday.

Judge batted second in the lineup behind leadoff hitter Andrew McCutchen.

The club announced Judge's return from the disabled list last Friday, where he appeared in right field during the eighth inning. Judge was unable to be used as a hitter but could play defense.

On Monday, Judge had 11 live at-bats in a simulated game at Yankee Stadium.

Judge was placed on the disabled list on July 27 after suffering a chip fracture in his right wrist after getting hit by a pitch against the Royals. The 26-year-old rightfielder was hitting .283 with 26 home runs and 61 RBI.
