Judge Beginning to Rule AAA Pitching

Last week, I wrote an article comparing Aaron Judge to Giancarlo Stanton, saying those comparisons were unfounded.  And while they still are, Judge seems to finally be living up to his top prospect hype.

In the last 15 games, Judge has 9 home runs in AAA.  He has 7 HR in his last 9 games, including his AAA-leading 16th last night.  It’s a small sample size, but in the last 10 games he is also batting .361 and has driven in 12 runs.

With Aaron Hicks unable to hit a beach ball with a boat oar, it may be time to call up Judge and see what he can do.  Could he be in the lineup tonight against Cole Hamels?
