Weekly Check In: Aaron Judge

Aaron Judge has been in Triple-A for only a couple of weeks now but has already acclimated to his new surroundings, his new teammates and new opposing pitchers. Judge is already hitting bombs down in Scranton with the RailRiders and was rewarded late last week with an invitation to the All-Star Game Futures Game to be played in Cincinnati next month along with former Double-A Trenton teammate Gary Sanchez.

Could Judge be a legitimate September call up, or earlier, prospect and could he be the Yankees full time right fielder as soon as 2016? It’s hard to say but the Yankees are being awfully aggressive with their college drafted outfielder and all signs seems at least be pointing that way. Before you get too excited though remember Robert Refsnyder’s rise through the system after being drafted out of the University of Arizona and see how long he sits in Triple-A despite an obvious and glaring need in the Bronx. It is all about tempering expectations with this team and their prospects.
