The 25-year-old slugger was often seen with large bags of ice over his left shoulder in late August in September following games, but he never let the media know that he was in pain. In his rookie season, Judge slashed .284/.422/.627 (1.049 OPS) with 52 bombs, 114 RBIs, and 24 doubles. With the timing of this surgery, Judge is expected to be fully recovered and ready for spring training in 2018.
