Aaron Judge promoted to Tampa

The New York Yankees 2013 First Round Draft Pick (32nd Overall) Outfielder Aaron Judge has been promoted to the Tampa Yankees. Judge was added to Tampa’s roster on Thursday after participating in the South Atlantic League All-Star Game earlier this week.

He spent the first half of the 2014 season with Class A Charleston where he maintained a .333 batting average along with nine homers and 45 RBIs and was selected as the SAL Mid-Season All-Star just this week. Judge didn’t play after being drafted last season due to a quadriceps injury.

Before being drafted, Judge played at Fresno State University where he was a three time All-Conference First Team selection. Judge also won the 2012 College World Series Home Run Derby. He was also named the Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American. Judge was previously drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 2010 MLB Draft in the thirty-first round by the Oakland Athletics.

The six foot seven inch outfielder also grew up playing football and actually received interest from colleges to play football while in college. However, Judge always love baseball a bit more and decided to pursue his baseball career through college.

There is no doubt that Aaron Judge will bring some necessary offense to the Tampa Yankees current power outage since the promotion of Pete O’Brien.
