"The wrist is feeling all right, but could be better. I’m still right on track. I feel like hopefully I’ll be swinging a bat in the next couple of days, maybe next week,” he said. “We don’t have a timetable on that yet. But shortly, we should start ramping it up and get swinging again.

The Yankees hold the first of two AL Wild Card spots, but Judge maintained that the team's goal is to win the division for the first time since 2012.

“We’re always hunting for the division," he said. "August just started, and in August and September, a lot of crazy things have happened. For us, our goal has always been the division, it doesn’t matter how many games we’re back, we’re going to keep fighting."

The Yankees have six games remaining against the Red Sox, which could determine the AL East champion. Legendary Yankees left-hander David Wells, in attendance at Judge's meet-and-greet Friday, said a Judge return could make the difference.

"Just his presence and what he's capable of doing speaks volumes," Wells said. "He can carry a team on his back but like we had on [the Yankees World Series-winning in 1998], you need help. Whether its your pitching to help you out, guys behind you if you're not doing your job, defensively if can you do your job. That's what that guy brings."

While Judge had fun joking about his job security, he also stressed the importance of what his job in New York entails.

“I got the best job on the planet, I feel like," Judge said. "There’s only one right fielder for the Yankees. I’m blessed to be out here.”
