Aaron Judge's already historic season is now officially one for the record books.

The New York Yankees rookie phenom continued his stunning freshman campaign Sunday with a mammoth home run - his 40th - off Texas Rangers reliever Nick Martinez in the fourth inning. Judge joins Mark McGwire as the only rookies in baseball history to have hit 40 home runs, according to Baseball Reference.

Judge went on to hit his second homer of the afternoon in the sixth inning off Texas' Yohander Mendez, running his season total to 41 and leaving him eight shy of McGwire's rookie record of 49 from 1987.

The 25-year-old came into Sunday's game slashing .274/.409/.568 while leading all American League hitters in home runs, runs scored, and walks.

He also walked for the 107th time, breaking Les Fleming's rookie record set in 1942.

Some sources credit Ted Williams with 107 walks in his rookie season.

Williams was 1 behind Fleming according to the stats flashed during FOX's broadcast.

Aaron Judge appears to have turned things around.

The New York Yankees outfielder, who entered Monday's game against the Minnesota Twins hitting .300/.500/.950 with four home runs over his last seven games, wasted no time getting on the board by blasting a solo home run off Ervin Santana in the first inning.

The 395-foot shot was Judge's 44th on the season.

Aaron Judge is now firmly entrenched in New York Yankees royalty.
The rookie slugger continued his remarkable debut campaign Wednesday afternoon by smacking his 45th home run of 2017, a two-run shot off Minnesota'sBartolo Colon.
That #Statcast record has been overruled!@TheJudge44now has the most barrels in a season (78), passing Miguel Cabrera ('16) on this HR. pic.twitter.com/ooL0ut3DYC
— #Statcast (@statcast) September 20, 2017
With the homer, Judge became only the seventh player in Yankees history to hit at least 45 home runs in a single season. The list of men he joined is indeed a who's who of pinstriped legends: Babe Ruth (nine times), Lou Gehrig (four), Mickey Mantle (twice), Alex Rodriguez (twice), Roger Maris, and Joe DiMaggio.
Judge also knocked in his 100th RBI of the season with the two-run shot, making him the eighth Yankee ever with 100 RBIs, 100 runs scored, and 100 walks in a single season. According to MLB.com, he's just the third rookie to reach those heights, joining Ted Williams in 1939 and Al Rosen in 1950.
Judge is four homers shy of tying Mark McGwire's major-league rookie home-run record that's stood since 1987. He already surpassed Williams' modern-era record for walks by a rookie earlier this summer.

Don't look now but Judge is hitting again. His average in September is a very respectable .270 or so, the Ks are down a bit, the walks have always been sky high, he's hitting opposite field singles like he did in the first half, and of course there's the power.  It helps that Sanchez is hot too and protecting him in the lineup.

Agreed. But. Do you think it has to do with facing weaker pitching a la Orioles, and is the increased production coming either in the first couple innings or when the Yanks are already ahead 5 to 7 runs (aka "Danny Tartabull HRs")...? What about down 2-1 in the 8th with a guy on base...?
I don't see Judge getting the Big Papi deadly clutch homers, especially off folks like Indians starters when cards are on the table. I hope I am proven wrong.

His Sep. numbers include games against presumed playoff teams Boston and Minnesota, so he's not just beating up on scrubs.  I'm not going to judge clutch hitting until the postseason.  This team has been incredibly un-clutch in October for years now and I'm hoping the new blood changes that this year.

It's not happening no matter how much you want to believe it is. He's a good talent but isn't connecting with a national fanbase and can't get primo endorsements. 

Nobody cares about Trout because not even his home fanbase cares about him or their team.  Honestly, Albert Pujols has more credibility than Trout even today as far as face and name recognition goes.  If your home team does nothing to truly promote you, and your fanbase isn't paying to see you, you are screwed.  Add to it that SoCal doesn't really give a shit about baseball in general and 3/4 of the country isn't staying up past their bedtime to watch him play...means that Trout is basically not special.  I would argue that Kris Bryant is more of a face for baseball than Trout because there are Cubs fans nationwide and they all know who Bryant is (and they actually support him by buying his merch).

If Aaron Judge can just hit 25-30 HR per year and hit .275, he will PRINT money.  Because the Yankees fanbase has wanted somebody like him since Mo and Jeter retired.

When the Blue Jays played a series there in 2015. Their fans were chanting MVP every time Josh Donaldson came to bat.

Clutch comes with experience.  I'd like to think he'll develop that intangible as he gets older.
I do feel like many of his hits and HRs do tend to bury teams and or put them in a hole early.  He's on base a lot early, making pitchers work.

Not exactly a fair comparison.  Judge is basically a rookie that played last September.  Papi did not have a season like this until he was 28, arguably not until he was 29.  Papi played in Minnesota, which should have played his strengths well, but he didn't really explode until he played in Boston where he could wrap HRs around the Pesky pole.  It wasn't until Boston's World Series year that Papi actually had a year you could call better than Judge is having this season.  As of today, he leads the AL in HR, Runs scored, and Walks.  I don't know where he stands in the RBI race, but he's doing well.  The object of a hitters' game is to get on base and score runs, and to drive in runs.  Judge can't possibly be doing ALL this damage in non-clutch situations.  And it's not like the Yankees are a juggernaut here - the presence Judge provides has improved everyone around him.  He was doing major damage in May in the six hole before Gerardi put him in the three.
Papi was a special ball player, but at age 25, he hadn't even come close to what Judge has done.  Let's see if Judge can do what Papi did when he's 30, until then, it's not fair to him.

For all his baseball-pummeling prowess, Aaron Judge still can't seem to stop striking out.

After a first-inning punchout Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays, courtesy of starter Joe Biagini, Judge was sent back to the dugout on strike three for the 200th time this season, setting a new all-time worst mark among rookies.

Chicago Cubs infielder Kris Bryant previously held the record, when he struck out 199 times in the 2015 season. Judge, however, reached the mark in 43 fewer at-bats.

Judge also joins a rare group of five other players who have struck out 200 or more times in one season.

Despite his new record, Judge is still mashing baseballs at a historic pace. The towering Yankees slugger just needs another three home runs this season to match Mark McGwire's rookie record of 49, set in 1987.

Aaron Judge sentenced yet another baseball to life in the cheap seats Friday with his 46th home run of 2017.

He ripped the fourth pitch he saw from Toronto Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada deep to left field to give the New York Yankees an early 1-0 lead.

With the homer, Judge inched within striking distance of Mark McGwire's MLB rookie record of 49, set in 1987. Judge has eight more games after Thursday's contest in which to either tie or pass McGwire.

At 469 feet, the ball Judge belted Friday is the second-longest deep fly of his young career. Plenty more seem bound to follow.

At 469 feet, that was the second-longest homer of Aaron Judge's career, as tracked by @statcast. His longest was 495 feet. pic.twitter.com/TzoSB48lgD
