Aaron Judge’s health is already a concern.

The right-back was left out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Orioles with what Aaron Boone called “a general pain in his [left] side “

The manager said it wasn’t an oblique injury, and with the Yankees having a day off Thursday, “I don’t want to take any chances. “

The Yankees start a series in Tampa Bay on Friday and the judge suffered leg injuries while playing on the turf at Tropicana Field.

The judge didn’t dive for a ball into right field in Tuesday’s win over the Orioles and didn’t appear to run aggressively on base, even though he looked good at home plate, performing a home run for a second night in a row and consistently hitting the ball.

Boone said he doesn’t plan for the judge to take any tests, although the 28-year-old is expected to undergo treatment and stretching ahead of Wednesday’s game, with the possibility of being used late “in a big spot” .

The judge has participated in the last three games of spring training, two by design and a third due to allergies. He had started all five of the Yankees’ previous games, including one at DH, but struggled with oblique and rib injuries throughout his career.
