Aaron Judge, OF, Fresno State
Class: Junior; Height: 6-7; Weight: 255; B/T: R/R
Absolute monster of a man, the 6-foot-7 outfielder out of Fresno State has finally started to capitalize on his power potential this season. After hitting .332/.446/.461 during his first two seasons, the toolsy Judge is hitting .369/.457/.655 with 15 doubles, four triples, 12 homeruns and 12 stolen bases in 14 attempts. His Weighted On Base Average, or wOBA, according to CollegeSplits.com is a solid .475.
Projection: Judge, a hulking 6-foot-7, will always have to contend with an abnormally large strike zone and the subsequent questions surrounding it. But he’s incredibly athletic, has a history of solid plate discipline, and could be another 20/20 candidate down the line. A reasonable comp might be Milwaukee’s Corey Hart, another gangly, athletic outfielder with a similar skill set.
Ceiling: 3.0-win player
