The 30-year-old slugger is a clear favorite for the American League MVP Award and has a shot to potentially win the Triple Crown.
He’s hit 59 homers with 127 RBI, a 1.120 OPS, and a .316 batting average.
He’s now just two homers away from tying Roger Maris‘ American League record from 1961.

Judge Does It Again
At this point, teams have grown accustomed to seeing Judge go yard, and it’s gotten to the point where nobody even moves, as shown by a graph from Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
One player did actually move a little bit, that being Brewers pitcher Luis Perdomo.
Everybody else though stayed put.
The outfielders knew instantly that the ball was gone.
Judge just has that kind of power.
He can put a charge into one and send it a mile high.
It’s clear that teams have now just come to expect Judge to hit a long home run or two at some point.
His power is incredibly hard for any team to contain.
Him reaching 61 home runs just seems like a formality now.
The graph shown in the tweet is from Judge’s second home run on Sunday.
Everybody on the field for the Brewers seemed to know right off the bat that it was a home run.
Nobody has been able to stop him as of late and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon.
It was just another classic case of the ball being hit so hard that nobody moved even an inch.
