Aaron Judge named International League Player of the Month

Aaron Judge has been named the International League’s Player of the Month for June, according to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre beat writer Shane Hennigan.

In 28 games in June, Judge hit .343 (35-102) with nine home runs and 25 RBIs. He had 11 multi-hit games in June, including his first career multi-home run game. He failed to reach base in just three of the games he played in.

Judge becomes the first RailRider to earn International League Player of the Month honors since Jose Pirela won the award in June of 2014. 

The 24-year-old continues to make a case that he belongs at the big league level.  After hitting just .183 in the month of May, Judge made some adjustments and got back on track. His outstanding month at the plate helped the RailRiders retake the top spot in the International League North standings.

In 76 games this season, Judge has posted a slash line of .270/.362/.491, including a league best 16 home runs. He was recently named to the Triple-A All Star team, as he will represent the International League against the Pacific Coast League on July 13 at BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte, North Carolina. The game can be seen live on MLB Network.

Fans have been anticipating the arrival of Judge in the Bronx for quite some time now. If he continues to hit at a high level, it might not be long before Judge is playing right field at Yankee Stadium.
