ESNY’s New York Yankees top 10 prospects

6. Aaron Judge

One of three drafted in the first round by the Yankees in 2013, Aaron Judge is by far the best of the bunch. 

The big-bodied outfield is a consensus top 100 prospect and is the only one to make it to the show out of any of these prospects at this point in time. 

The first thing that comes to mind when seeing Judge, is how large he is. At 6’7”, Judge is easily one of the tallest players in the MLB. His height, depending on how you look at it, is either his biggest strength or biggest weakness.



The young slugger struggled in his first experience in the big leagues and that was not all surprising. Judge also struggled in his first taste of Triple-A, but after some adjustments, he dominated year two.

I expect to see Judge make some adjustments, like trying to cut down on strikeouts and be better prepared for his second taste of the majors.

If Judge can cut down on his strikeouts, (44% last season) he should be put in a better position to succeed.
