6'7": Aaron Judge, New York Yankees, RF

Publish date:

Though he's cooled off since a remarkable first half capped by his victory in the Home Run Derby, Judge has powered the Yankees into playoff contention with an AL-best 36 homers; he also leads in slugging percentage (.608) and ranks third in WAR (5.6). The force with which Judge sentences baseball to die is something to behold; on back-to-back days in June, he launched the season's longest home run (495 feet) and set a record for the highest exit velocity of a home run in the Statcast era (121.1 mph).  

Total players: 19
