Weekly Check In: Aaron Judge

The New York Yankees decided against calling up their top positional prospect during September call ups this season Aaron Judge and Judge is making this look like the right decision unfortunately. Judge has struggled in Triple-A essentially since the "injury" that kept him out about a week for the RailRiders and ever since he was seen in the Scranton locker room with his back wrapped up. New York played the injury off as no big deal and nothing to report on or worry about but the box score tells an entirely different story.

Judge has been basically non-existent since the "injury" and ended his regular season on Sunday with an 0-for-5 with a K. While the Yankees outfielder has hit the occasional home run he has also seen his strikeout totals steadily climb in his Triple-A career. It probably was the best call to give him the playoffs in Triple-A to go through without expectations and a long winter to rest, rehab and work on whatever is ailing him.
