With an astounding 37-17 record so far in the MLB season, the New York Yankees are off to a blazing start.


The dynamic combination of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, whose strength and presence at the plate have been key to the team’s success, have led the Yankees to a 34-6 record when both homer in the same game, dating back to 2018, when Stanton joined the team.


They most recently accomplished the double destroyer on May 24th.


Yankees Offense Is In Full Swing 


The Yankees’ offensive assault has been greatly aided by two players renowned for their outstanding home run-hitting ability. With a height of 6’7″, Judge is an intimidating presence in the batter’s box and holds the MLB record for most homers hit in a single-season with 62 in 2022.


This season, Judge has been in outstanding form, thrilling both the squad and the fans with his constant crucial hits and huge bro bombs.


Stanton, who came to the Yankees in 2018, has also been an elite player when he’s healthy. He’s accumulated 415 homers in his career.


Because of Stanton, the Yankees have a strong middle of the lineup, which makes it difficult for opposing pitchers to get through without being damaged. Add in the elite pitching led by MLBbro Marcus Stroman, who set the tone early in the season, and a 28th World Series is not out of the question.



Stanton, the former Hank Aaron Award winner, currently ranks tied for 7th in the league in homers.  It has been great to see what a healthy Stanton can do in “The City That Never Sleeps.”


Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge Are Both Healthy: History Of Hits and Misses 


In 2018, when Stanton was coming off an MVP season, hitting 59 homers for the Marlins and joined Aaron Judge in the heart of the Yankees lineup. Stanton held up his end of the deal, playing 158 games, hitting 38 homers and driving in 100 runs. Judge, however, was limited to 130 total games in 2019 and 2020, while Stanton was only able to suit up for 41 total games in 2019-20.


In 2021, Judge played 148 games and Stanton played 139 games and they hit a combined 74 homers, showing glimpses of what a full focused season would be like. In 2022 and 2023 Stanton once again battled injuries and played in just 211 combined games, while carrying the lowest batting averages of his career, while Judge had an all-time great season.


Judge joined Stanton back in the MASH unit in 2023, playing just 106 games. This season, Judge lead the league in games played (54) and Stanton has a healthy 47 games under his belt.


This season has shown off Judge and Stanton’s synergy more than ever, as both sluggers are playing at their best at the same time for the first time since Stanton’s arrival. Stanton’s playing time and performance have been restricted by injuries in past seasons. Judge has also experienced his fair share of injuries, but finally we are seeing how devastating they can be in the middle of the lineup on a daily basis.


He’s breaking more records.



“Bronx Bro Bomber” has been in complete all-star form this season. Having 16 home runs and 37 RBI. He is currently tied for 3rd in the league for home runs. Also, Judge is tied for 11th in the league for RBI. Judge has been the X-factor for the Yankee’s this season.


Stanton and Judge’s strength, leadership, and health have been major factors in the Yankees’ incredible 37-17 start. The Yankees look poised to maintain their dominance and make a deep postseason run.
