Aaron Judge boosted his draft stock over the summer and is now a likely first rounder.  With his power, Judge is a high ceiling prospect, but there are questions over how much he will hit at the next level.

  • Strong, muscular build
  • Tools are solid across the board
  • Big raw power is his biggest asset
  • Swing is a bit long
  • Pitch recognition is widely questioned
  • Patient approach
