All rise!

Aaron Judge is as of this writing the most exciting player on the New York Yankees, and since his rookie year, the team’s best offensive player.

Judge played in 27 Games in 2016, maintaining his rookie eligibility for 2017.  The First Baseman was named the Rookie of the Year, leasing the AL in Home Runs (52), Runs Scored (128), Walks (127), while winning the Silver Slugger and coming in second for the MVP.  An All-Star as a rookie, Judge was also named an All-Star in 2018 (27 HR, .278 BA), and had 27 Home Runs again in only 102 Games in 2019.  

As of this writing, Judge is coming off another great year, where he was fourth in MVP voting off a 39 Home Run year.  With a current career OPS of .940, and still under 30, Judge should be able to climb up this list if he continues, but there is no other all-time top 50 to move up on.
