Aaron Judge

Baseball-reference

Aaron Judge put up video game numbers in 2017, and was near the top of the league in many categories. He led the AL in homeruns and runs, while finishing second in on base percent and OPS (on base plus slugging) behind Mike Trout. The Rookie of the Year voting picked Judge unanimously. The AL MVP vote chose Judge as its runner up, though we think the vote should have been much closer. The narrative with Judge will continue to revolve around his strikeout rate, but he has the work ethic to silence that.
