He said the shoulder started to bother him around the All-Star break but he did not have any injections of painkiller.
"We've had a lot of acquisitions this offseason and I don't think we're done yet," Judge told The Associated Press before the game. "We're just adding not only great players but quality guys as well. I've gotten a chance to speak with Stanton. I saw him at the All-Star game and Home Run Derby. We've all seen what he does on the field but the kind of person he is and the value he will bring to this clubhouse, I'm looking forward to that. I'm excited for 2018. It's going to be a fun year."
