Weekly Check In: Aaron Judge

For the final time this season we will use our weekly check in post to check in on the Yankees top prospect, Mr. Aaron Judge. Judge’s season ended last week in the playoffs in disappointing fashion as the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders fell short in their journey for the Governor’s Cup. Judge was surprisingly a non-factor for Scranton for much of the second half of the season and for most of the playoffs leaving you to wonder if The Judge is truly ready for the next level.

It’s not a coincidence that after Judge missed a week with an injury, which is still a mystery to this day although he was seen in the locker room and clubhouse with his back wrapped days before coming back into the lineup, that his Triple-A numbers went on a steady decline. His strikeout numbers went up, his batting average went down and despite him catching up to one and hitting a home run every once in a while he definitely did not showcase his true talents against next level pitching this season.

Judge will be fine, I feel that in my heart. Congrats on the great season Aaron and here’s to a healthy and even more productive 2016 season.
