On Thursday night Aaron Judge was hit in the wrist with a 93 MPH fastball in the first inning.  Royals pitcher Jakob Junis was trying to go up and in and caught him square on the wrist.

Judge was clearly in pain, but took his base and initially stayed in the game.

Judge would later be removed from the game and be taken to the hospital to undergo further evaluation.

That trip to the hospital revealed a chip fracture in his bone.  The Yankees took to Twitter to break the news and added he will be out of action for at least three weeks.

This is not what Yankees fans want to hear as they try to catch the Red Sox in the AL East and prepare for the postseason run.
