  Yankees slugger Aaron Judge to miss start of spring training with shoulder soreness Coming off a 2019 season that was riddled with injuries, the unfortunate trend is continuing once again for the New York Yankees.All-Star outfielder Aaron Judge will be sidelined to start spring training due to right shoulder soreness, the team announced.
