The numbers really speak for themselves.
He may be stuck on 60 homers, but there’s still a chance for him to tie or break Roger Maris‘ record from 1961.
But for those who keep track of barrels for hits, you’ll find that Judge himself is also at the top of that list.
Judge has had 80 barrels for hits this season.
Kyle Schwarber is in a very distant second with 57.
There's #AaronJudge, and then there's everyone else.

Judge Leads Another Category
At this point, you can just find a category that anybody around baseball is keeping track of, and you’ll see Aaron Judge at the top with a huge lead over the runner up, putting up those numbers at a record pace.
This is of course a less talked about statistic.
Most baseball fans and analysts are focusing on his home runs, his RBI total, his batting average, and his OPS.
The first three mentioned are what have him in the running for the Triple Crown.
But he sure knows how to put his bat on the ball and make solid contact when he swings away.
That’s just the nature of Judge’s game.
That’s why he’s the favorite to win the MVP Award, even above guys such as Shohei Ohtani.
Pick a statistic, and you’ll almost certainly find Judge leading the rest of the pack.
His bat has carried them this season, and could carry them to an AL East title soon.
