He’s back!

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Today feels different, doesn’t it? It’s the first day of summer—the longest day of the year—but that’s not it. No, it’s almost like spring. More specifically, it feels like Opening Day again.

Later tonight, Aaron Judge will return to the Yankees’ lineup after missing about two months with an oblique strain. Judge joins an offense overflowing with power bats, including Gary Sanchez, Giancarlo Stanton, Edwin Encarnacion, and Luke Voit. Add in the likes of Didi Gregorius, DJ LeMahieu, and Gleyber Torres? Goodness.

We’ll have a news post on Judge’s return, as well as the corresponding roster move, later on. In the meantime, enjoy the open thread.
