New York Yankees star Aaron Judge is out indefinitely with a torn ligament in his right big toe. The injury occurred on June 3, when Judge collided with the outfield wall while chasing a fly ball at Dodger Stadium.

Judge has been one of the best players in baseball this season, leading the American League in home runs (29) and runs batted in (64). He was also selected to his fourth All-Star Game.

The Yankees have not given a timetable for Judge's return. Manager Aaron Boone said that the team will "take it day by day" and that Judge will not be rushed back.

Judge's injury is a major blow to the Yankees, who are currently in first place in the American League East. The team has been without outfielder Giancarlo Stanton for most of the season due to a right calf injury.

The Yankees will need other players to step up in Judge's absence. Joey Gallo, who was acquired in a trade with the Texas Rangers in the offseason, has been one of the team's most productive hitters since joining the Yankees.

Gallo is hitting .227 with 13 home runs and 37 RBIs in 57 games with the Yankees. He has also been a solid defender in left field.

Other players who could see increased playing time with Judge out include Miguel Andujar, Tim Locastro, and Marwin Gonzalez.

The Yankees will need to find a way to win games without Judge, but they have the talent to do so. The team has a deep lineup and a strong bullpen.

If the Yankees can stay healthy, they should be able to weather Judge's injury and make a run at the World Series.
