Judge returns without his bat…Cubs shelve Strop…Big Ben, Rodgers iffy…NHL OK’s Caps-Orpik deal

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge has been activated from the disabled list but says he is limited for now to playing in the outfield and pinch-running. Judge has not played since July 26, when he broke his right wrist against Kansas City. Manager Aaron Boone says the team is a couple days from making a decision on at-bats for Judge in a simulated game, a step before he will hit in a game.

CHICAGO (AP) — Cubs reliever Pedro Strop (strohp) will miss the rest of the regular season with a left hamstring strain suffered in Thursday’s win over the Nationals. Strop was injured trying to beat out a double-play grounder in the 10th inning. He has been Chicago’s closer since Brandon Morrow was placed on the disabled list on July 18, logging 11 saves in 13 opportunities since then.

UNDATED (AP) — Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger (RAWTH’-lihs-bur-gur) are listed as questionable for Sunday’s NFL action. Rodgers suffered a knee injury in Green Bay’s 24-23 win over Chicago last Sunday, but he returned to throw for three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Roethlisberger participated in Pittsburgh’s final practice yesterday after skipping two workouts due to a right elbow injury.

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — The NHL has cleared the Washington Capitals after questioning the team about re-signing Brooks Orpik after trading him to Colorado in June. General manager Brian MacLellan says the league put the Capitals through a thorough questioning process for trading the veteran defenseman and then bringing him back at a cheaper salary after the Avalanche bought him out. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed MacLellan’s assessment that the league investigated Washington and found nothing to be amiss with Orpik’s situation.

GRAND BLANC, Mich. (AP) — Brandt Jobe capped a fast start with an eagle in a 7-under 65 that gave him the first-round lead at the Ally Challenge. Jobe played his first seven holes in 6 under, making the eagle on the par-5 16th. Vijay Singh (VEE’-jay sing), Jeff Maggert and Esteban Toledo are one stroke back in the PGA Tour Champions event.
