Aaron Judge (32, New York Yankees), the “homer king” who missed many games last year due to injury, has a batting order and defensive position for the 2024 season.
Major League Baseball’s official website MLB.com expressed New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone’s opinion on the batting order and defensive position Judge will play on the 26th (Korea time).
According to the report, Boone will have Judge play center field for most of the games. Also, as previously announced, Judge hits three times in the batting order, not two.월카지노도메인
In other words, Judge will play the most in the 2024 season as a center fielder. The New York Yankees will use Juan Soto and Judge’s No. 2-3 in the 2024 season.
In addition, DJ LeMayhew will stand in front of Soto-Jersey. In addition, Gleyber Torres and Alex Verdugo could also be a leadoff option.
Judge played 593 games in right field out of 835 games in the Major League. Judge played in center field in just 117 games. However, he played in 77 games in center field in the 2022 season when he showed the best performance.
Therefore, it is not unfamiliar for Judge to see center field. In addition, Giancarlo Stanton may play as a designated hitter and save his physical strength when he is away.
Judge showed his best performance with 62 home runs in 2022, but played in only 106 games last year. He missed a long time due to a major injury while defending.
Therefore, the New York Yankees and Judge will be most wary of injury. Judge is a batter who can hit a home run at any time if there is no injury.
If Judge, who hit as many as 37 home runs despite his injury last year, can play more than 150 games in the 2024 season, it is no dream to recreate the form of 2022.
