Around the Empire: Yankees news - 7/28/18

Aaron Judge feels better, glad injury wasn’t more serious; Sonny Gray expected to make next start after brief injury scare; Justus Sheffield leads four Yankee prospects in MLB Pipeline’s Top 100; Yankee fans force Junis to make Twitter account private

MLB: New York Yankees at Washington Nationals
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports | Mandy Bell: Aaron Judge is now on the 10-day disabled list and I just want you to know I blame all of you for this. I hope you’re happy, cause I’m sure not. Our big brave beefy baseball boy said that he felt better today, still thankful that the injury was not as serious as it could have been. Judge also stated that it’s part of the game and that he’s glad it happened now instead of in September. He’s so brave. I just want to hug him.

Newsday | Erik Boland: Oh yeah, Sonny Gray also had a bit of an injury scare as well. I guess he’s brave. Kinda. Look, my emotions are solely focused on Judge here. Anyway, Sonny Gray is fine. He went for precautionary X-Rays and they thankfully came back negative. Looks like he will make his next start. Now time to resume my curled up position regarding Judge. | Mandy Bell: Let’s turn our attention to the Yankees’ farm system for a moment. MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 prospects was recently reevaluated and we’re still looking pretty good in the prospect department. Justus Sheffield takes over the top spot at #28. Estevan Florial is #47, Jonathan Loaisiga is #77, and Albert Abreu is #79. That makes four Yankee prospects in the Top 100 with three of them being pitchers. Definitely read more about them, if you so choose. I certainly would.

Yahoo Sports | Jack Baer: Okay look. I am mad at Jakob Junis for injuring our beloved brave baseball boy. However, it never even occurred to me to yell obscenities at his Twitter account, which is now private because of Yankee fan backlash. Please don’t do this. It was clearly an accident. That is all.
