LAS VEGAS (AP) —erry Dipoto was released from a hospital Thursday http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , hours after completing a trade from his bed during the baseball winter meetings.He had begun feeling ill earlier in the week.The team said Dipoto was driven to an area hospital by Mariners officials Wednesday “out of an abundance of caution.” Dipoto made improvements into Thursday and was released later in the day, the team said. He was expected to fly home to Seattle on Friday.No other information was provided about his condition, though assistant GM Justin Hollander said further tests were done.Despite being sick, the 50-year-old Dipoto dealt Carlos Santana to Cleveland in exchange for Edwin Encarnacion on Thursday — getting a big assist from Hollander.Hollander handled the final logistics of the swap from Seattle’s side. He went to the hospital Wednesday night to work out “sort of a new wrinkle” with Dipoto.“We were texting back and forth. Some of the groundwork had been laid and then he basically handed me the keys and said, ‘You know what I want to do roughly, just check in when you have but go run with it.'”Hollander shared a photo of Dipoto in a hospital gown Sonny Gray Jersey , on a bed, giving a thumbs-up sign.“They’re still running tests, getting results. I would assume it’s nothing serious if they’re going to let him go home, hopefully today,” Hollander said. “He seemed to be feeling better based on what (wife) Tamie said. He was even looking better last night than before he went in.”Dipoto will begin his fourth full season as Seattle’s executive vice president and general manager of baseball operations. He was hired near the end of the 2015 season and received a contract extension in July. New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge is swinging a bat again.According to Coley Harvey of ESPN.com, the slugger took 50 swings鈥?5 of which were to hit the ball off the tes hit by a pitch on July 26."It's moving in the right direction. It's definitely a big step Luis Severino Jersey ," Judge said. "We're just excited and kind of on track with what we're going to one day accomplish. So I'm excited for the progress we're making so far."Judge said he didn't feel pain while swinging, and manager Aaron Boone suggested he could be accelerating toward a return to the field with this progress."Once we get through this weekend, and if he continues to graduate, then you start really thinking about a possible timeline about maybe getting back," Boone said.Harvey noted there is no official timetable since the original plan was for him to return in three weeks after the injury. It has been more than five weeks, and Judge won't have the option of minor league rehab games with the minor league regular season over.This progress comes at a time when the Bronx Bombers are 7.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East and running out of realistic time to make a charge. However http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , they are still comfortably in the playoff picture at 4.5 games ahead of the Athletics for the top wild-card spot and 10 games ahead of the Seattle Mariners should Oakland make a charge.New York has weathered Judge's setback with Giancarlo Stanton at designated hitter, and the trade acquisition of Andrew McCutchen provides important depth in right field.Still, Judge's return to the lineup will make New York all the more dangerous in the postseason. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year and Silver Slugger winner has appeared in 99 games this season and is slashing .285/.398/.548 with 26 homers and 61 RBI.
