The New York Yankees activated slugger Aaron Judge from the COVID-19 list prior to Tuesday’s road game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Judge missed the past nine games after testing positive for COVID-19.

Judge is playing right field and batting second against the Rays.

The 29-year-old Judge is batting .282 with 21 homers and 49 RBIs in 84 games.
