Yankees’ Aaron Judge has been on absurd stretch since first career ejection

New York Yankees fans may want to send MLB umpire Ryan Blakney a gift basket for being the first to eject Aaron Judge from a baseball game.

Since Judge’s first career ejection on May 4, he has been the best player on the planet, bar none. The Yankees captain has truly enjoyed an absurd stretch of hitting.

Right after that ejection, Judge went on a historic tear for the month of May. He set records upon records doing things no one in MLB history has ever done.

That hot streak has carried over into June, and the Yankees carry the best record in the American League going into Monday.

In the 33 games since Judge’s ejection, the Yankees star outfielder has been putting up video game numbers.

His 24 home runs on the season lead MLB and he’s currently on pace for 58 home runs. His 4.9 fWAR also leads all MLB players by a wide margin, which is incredible considering his fWAR was 0.7 entering the month of May.

There is no better player on the planet than the Yankees captain right now and as long as health is on his side, another MVP award is likely coming his way.
