Are the chambers back open tonight? After missing over 50 games for the Yankees, it seems like Aaron Judge is headed back to the Bronx and will hopefully be in the lineup tonight or at some point this weekend.

On Tuesday night Judge was looking a lot like his old self, hitting an opposite-field bomb during his Triple-A rehabilitation game. Following the Yankees’ win against the Rays the same night Boone said "it's certainly possible" that Judge can rejoin the big league squad as soon as Friday. Not only are we ready to have our star back with the squad, but Judge himself feels ready.

"I've been ready," Judge told reporters, "It's just about getting the reps in and making sure this thing stays healthy and I have no issues. And there haven't been any issues, so I’m ready to go. But those guys are rolling up there, so I don't know if I can crack that lineup. We'll see."

With Giancarlo Stanton and Judge about to be reunited in the outfield, what does our lineup look like going forward?  DJ LeMahieu has been thriving in the lead off spot since being placed there in April, hitting .462 with RISP, so it is unlikely he will be moved down in the order. The same can’t be said for Aaron Hicks. Currently he is hitting .198, so maybe a bump down the order is necessary at the moment.


Judge could be placed in the second slot, he’s most comfortable in the top of the order and it is where he has hit for most of his career.

3B DJ LeMahieu
RF Aaron Judge
1B Luke Voit
C Gary Sanchez
LF Giancarlo Stanton
SS Didi Gregorius
DH Edwin Encarnacion
CF Aaron Hicks
2B Gleyber Torres

Could this be how our weekend is looking? Quite a list - glad to have them all at the party in the Bronx as the Yankees battle Houston for the last time until, hopefully, October!
