The New York Yankees are one of the top teams in all of baseball.

They have maintained their place amongst the league’s elite even with MLBbro Aaron Judge performing below his standards in April.  Despite the slow start, the fact that the Yankees offense has still been producing, shows that he may have more assistance than he has had in previous years.

The addition of Juan Soto and the usual power of MLBbro Giancarlo Stanton has helped tremendously. 


Aaron Judge Can Afford To Slump Now, The Well-Rounded Yankees Are Winning

#HIGHFIVE (Week 6): Aaron Judge, Marcus Semien Turning Up


There was never a doubt that Judge would eventually find his elite form, but there was also no pressure on him to do so this early in the season. The Yankees have witnessed the past few years that their team can excel early and then flame out in the playoffs. This year they want to be clicking in October.


While it is good that Judge is finding his form, he needs to make sure that he can maintain this or parlay it into postseason success. But if the last two weeks prove anything, it’s that Judge does not need much to get hot. Just over a month ago the baseball world was concerned that Judge was beginning to decline, but now he is on one of the best two week stretches in the majors currently. 

As the season plays out, as long as Judge is healthy, the Yankees will be competitive.
