Yankees’ Aaron Judge comments on resurgence after bad slump

Published on

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge seemingly put memories of his earlier slump to bed, for good, when he went 4-for-4 with a home run, three doubles and two RBI in Wednesday’s 4-0 victory at the Minnesota Twins. 

Judge indicated after the win he’s still getting “locked in” this spring.

“We’re getting there,” Judge said about his ongoing surge, according to Greg Joyce of the New York Post and Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media for NJ.com. “We’re getting there. Not there yet. Hopefully, we get there when we’re talking in November.” 

Judge’s offensive woes in April and early May repeatedly generated headlines despite the Yankees’ hot start to the 2024 season. As Miller noted, the captain entered April 27 batting just .178 on the season. 

Heading into the Thursday afternoon series finale in Minnesota, Judge was responsible for a .255 average. Across the campaign’s first 44 games, he has hit 11 homers with 29 RBI and a .926 OPS. 

“So much for that tough start,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said about the 2022 American League Most Valuable Player. “Look, he’s a great player obviously and obviously starting to see the ball really well. Hitting’s hard, even for great ones. Even the guys that have the best of years and win MVPs, there’s still peaks and valleys.” 

Judge went viral on Wednesday thanks to his 467-foot bomb in the first inning at Target Field. He later reflected on whether he impresses even himself with such towering blasts:
