OF Aaron Judge New York Yan­kees

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

The 6-foot-7, 275-pound Judge is the Yan­kees’ best power-hit­ting prospect in years and is the type of player who could bring New York— which is threat­en­ing to run away with the AL East — depth in their ro­ta­tion or some pop in the out­field. Since the Derek Jeter-Jorge Posada years, the only start­ing po­si­tion play­ers the Yan­kees have de­vel­oped on their own are sec­ond base­man Robin­son Cano and out­fielder Brett Gard­ner. Judge, 23, is now at Class AAA and has an .837 on-base-plus-slug­ging per­cent­age at two lev­els this sea­son.
