The New York Yankees offense may be struggling to consistently score runs at the moment, but there is no denying that they have been one of the league’s top offenses in 2022.
Between the three thumpers, they have combined to hit 105 round-trippers in 2022, and there is still a month to go in the regular season.
Of course, Judge, with 51, is responsible for almost half of that total.
But Rizzo, with 30, and Stanton, at 24, have contributed their fair share of power, too.
Both have missed some time with injuries, too (particularly Stanton, with a recent Achilles problem), making their feats more impressive.
“Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for 105 HR this season. That’s the most HR by any trio on an AL team before September since the 1998 Mariners (Griffey Jr, A-Rod, Martinez had 110),” stats expert Katie Sharp tweeted.

The Yankees Trio Has More Homers Than Some Teams
The three stars have hit more home runs than the Detroit Tigers (76) and the Cleveland Guardians (101), and are close to the Chicago White Sox, Oakland Athletics, and Washington Nationals, all with 109.
Judge alone being so close to the Tigers speaks loudly about the kind of year he is currently enjoying.
Judge has never stopped hitting for power, but Rizzo is waking up after a somewhat cold spell.
Stanton is just returning from his injury, but he is capable of catching fire in a hurry, too.
There might be some issues with the rest of the Yankees lineup outside of those three hitters, DJ LeMahieu, Andrew Benintendi, and Jose Trevino, but as long as Judge, Rizzo, and Stanton are all healthy, the Yankees will be scary.
