Yankees Judge named AL Player of the Week

BRONX, N.Y. β€” Aaron Judge has been on fire lately for the New York Yankees. The Bronx Bombers right-fielder is on a home run tear as well and is presently tied for the league lead with 12. Hence, No. 99 was named American League Player of the Week.

Judge hit five home runs in the past week, including four against the Baltimore Orioles, along with home runs in the past three consecutive games.

In addition, Judge batted an AL-best .571 and sported an MLB-high 1.333 slugging percentage and 1.973 OPS. He is quite literally carrying the outfield (or what’s left of it) on his back.

This marks Judge’s fourth career Player of the Week Award. His most recent was the final week of July 2020. Judge is the second Yankee to be named AL Player of the Week this month, following starting pitcher Corey Kluber, who earned the distinction two weeks ago.
