Boston – Aaron Judge returned to the squad on Friday, returning from a one-game absence due to lower body soreness. The judge was scheduled to start a designated hitter match against the Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Anthony Rizzo? He needed more time.
Rizzo passed a major pre-match test, practicing full defensive drills and practicing hitting the field. He looked fine as he continued to deal with back spasms.
Ahead of the game, manager Aaron Boone said that if the preliminary work goes well, Rizzo could be an option as early as Friday night.
“If all is well, he will probably be an option off the bench tonight but looking forward to tomorrow,” Boone said.
Rizzo was hitting .223 with 22 homers, 52 RBI and .844 OPS in 77 games and an outside chance of making the 2022 MLB All-Star Game.
DJ LeMahieu started his place on a Friday night.
