I think Miguel Andujar will be the guy other teams will want from the Yankees.

Andujar had 1 ML game and went 3-for-4 with a walk, driving in 4 runs and stealing a base.  And then they sent him down.  Get that guy a first baseman's mitt and get him out there.

It was inevitable.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge made history Friday night when he crushed his 30th home run of the season. With the long ball, he passed the legendary Joe DiMaggio for the franchise's single-season rookie home run record.

The Baby Bronx Bombers were already well on their way to christening Yankee Stadium as the house that Judge built with his incredible power far exceeding expectations. Now, he's etched his name among the greats, at least for the time being.

A 21-year-old DiMaggio hit 29 home runs in his rookie season back in 1936 across 138 games. He hit his last home run of the season on Sept. 13. In fact, he hit three that day over two games in a doubleheader.

Judge cranked his 30th in only his 82nd game of the season. The All-Star break hasn't even creased the calendar yet, and he's got a semi-realistic shot at 60 home runs if everything breaks the right way.

The Yankees, perhaps more than any other franchise, have had an incredibly storied list of names grace their rosters over the years. None have ever accomplished what Judge has in their rookie year. Not Mickey Mantle. Not Lou Gehrig. Nobody.

The 25-year-old still has a way to go to match DiMaggio's other numbers from that fateful year. In addition to 29 homers, DiMaggio knocked 44 doubles and 15 triples. To date, Judge has 13 doubles and three triples.

How the remainder of Judge's inaugural season and career in the Bronx winds up remains to be seen, but with this home run, he will not simply be a footnote in Yankees history books.

Everything about Aaron Judge remains larger than life - including the cost of his shirt.

The New York Yankees phenom's debut pinstriped jersey from 2016 was sold for $157,366 on Sunday in an auction held by Steiner Sports, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.

No jersey has sold for more in the "Big Four" leagues in the past 15 years than Judge's. For reference, Steph Curry's jersey from Game 3 of this year's NBA Finals was auctioned for $135,060 in June.

Judge, who's wowed everyone in baseball with his prodigious power, leads the American League with 33 home runs, and is tied for the major-league lead with Giancarlo Stanton.

The 25-year-old made his big-league debut Aug. 13 last year at Yankee Stadium, going 2-for-4 with - you guessed it - a home run in his first at-bat in the show.

A sign of things to come, clearly.

CLEVELAND (AP) Aaron Judge's slump has carried him to the bench.

Judge is not in New York's starting lineup for Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Indians, a move Yankees manager Joe Girardi decided was necessary to give the slugger a chance to regroup.

''He's struggling. We felt we'd give him a day off and maybe it helps him. You try to do it a lot of different ways when guys are struggling. You keep running him out there. I just felt maybe a day off would do him some good.''

Judge is batting just .164 (11 of 67) with four homers, nine RBIs and 29 strikeouts since the All-Star break. His batting average has dropped from 329 to .299 and he struck out in 21 consecutive games.

''Mechanically he's a little bit off,'' Girardi said. ''I think he's missing some pitches he wasn't missing the first half of the season and those are leading to his problems.''

With Indians ace Corey Kluber on the mound in the series opener, Girardi felt it was the right time to rest the power hitter.

Judge leads the majors with 34 homers but he's not been connecting as of late, and Girardi wants to give the 25-year-old a mental break.

Girardi conceded that players can make things tougher on themselves in trying to get their swing back.

''I think a lot depends on how tough the guy is mentally,'' Girardi said. ''If you struggle for a while, you're going to get frustrated. Is that pressing? I don't know. Bottom line in either case you're not happy with the results so you're going to work at it, try to fix it.''

Girardi also gave designated hitter Matt Holliday a night off. He's batting only .182 in his last nine games.

Judge and Holliday are both expected to be back in the lineup on Friday.

He was so red hot a slump was bound to happen. It's only been 3 weeks and he's still hitting some home runs here and there. He needs to start laying off of pitches out of the zone again, he's chasing.

Beginning of the end for Ryan Howard.  This was before the injury.   That stupid shit Joe Morgan got in his head and convinced him to try and pull every pitch.  Stopped hitting home runs to the opposite field.  Was never the same after that.  Again, even before the Achillies he was headed the wrong way. 
Edit - Home run derby for Howard was beginning of the end.

Seen Tiger fishing. He actually looks physically fit. I really think he doesn't want to play anymore. I know his back problem is legit. Not doubting that. Just think he has lost the desire as well.

Here's a negative stat for Judge. He is striking out at an alarming rate. After 81 games, he has struckout 104 times. As the pitchers make adjustments & figure him out, he will end up with over 200 strikeouts.
The 3 top strikeout totals are:

223 - Mark Reynolds
222 - Adam Dunn
219 - Chris Davis


BTW, Mickey Mantle's highest strikeout total in a season was 126. The Babe's highest total was 93 & Gehrig's highest total was 84.





It's not exactly a record you want to chase.
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge set a new MLB record when he struck out in the top of the ninth inning of Wednesday's game against the New York Mets. It was the 33rd consecutive game where Judge has struck out, breaking a previous record held by retired slugger Adam Dunn.
Judge almost made it, too. He didn't go down on strikes until his fifth plate appearance of the game and he even worked the count full.
The last time the 25-year-old rookie didn't get punched out was on July 7 against the Milwaukee Brewers when he went 1-for-5 with a home run.
Even before Judge slowed at the plate following the All-Star break, he was prone to striking out. To date, he has struck out in 31.8 percent of his plate appearances.
Despite the inauspicious streak, Judge neither leads the majors in strikeouts or strikeout percentage. Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano leads baseball with 164 strikeouts while Texas Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo has fanned in 37.3 percent of his plate appearances.
Numbing the pain somewhat, however, was the monstrous home run Judge sent into the night sky earlier in the game.

Aaron Judge may be one of the most powerful, and popular, players in baseball, but the behemoth of a human does have a weakness.

The 25-year-old New York Yankees rookie struck out for the 36th straight game on Saturday, breaking the single-season record for consecutive games with a strikeout.

Judge had already set a similar record, but for non-pitchers, when he struck out against the New York Mets earlier this week.

Entering Saturday's contest, Judge had already struck out 163 times this season.
