Yankees’ manager Aaron Boone is hopeful that Aaron Judge could be back in the outfield just in time for New York’s series against the Mets on Saturday.

Boone told reporters during a video conference call on Tuesday that Judge looked good during the Yankees’ pre-game practice before losing 6-3 to the Tampa Bay Rays.

“I hope so,” Boone said of Judge making a quick return, NJ.com reported. “We’ll see how the ramp-up goes this week, as he ramps up the intensity with his running and his movements. I know he was hitting again, hit out on the field again and I know he’s feeling really good, feeling like he is there.”

He continued: “So, we’re at Tuesday right now. We’ll see where he is at the end of the week and hopefully be in a position to make that call and get him back in there.”

Judge was placed on the injured list last week after sustaining a right calf strain. The star outfielder said his choice of shoes while playing on the turf at Tropicana Field in Tampa is what caused the injury.
