TGP Prospects Month Top 29 Prospects List - #3 Aaron Judge

The first cookie has crumbled and his name is Aaron Judge. I have to be completely honest here I feel like the top three prospects in the Yankees system are completely interchangeable when it comes to these lists. Some will put Judge at the top of the rankings, others will have Jorge Mateo and some may even buy into what Gary Sanchez did last season in Trenton, Scranton and in Arizona with the Surprise Saguaros. Me personally I go with Judge only because of his struggles with the RailRiders in the second half of the season.

I truly believe that the struggles came along with that lower back "injury" he had last season because it coincides with the game logs you can find on Baseball Reference. With that said though I have the likes of Mateo and Sanchez ahead of Judge because those struggles could be a sign of whats to come as well. Judge has always struck out a little too much and he's always had a problem with chasing away and getting fooled by the soft stuff away. Back injury or not that may continue to show its ugly head in the future, not that this would keep Judge from being an All-Star caliber player for the majority of a long Major League career.
