Aaron Judge Unanimously Named 2017 AL Rookie of the Year


His tally also surpassed Babe Ruth's Yankees record for home runs in a season.

Despite hitting.188 in the postseason (9-for-48), Judge did hit four home runs in October and his defense saved the Yankees from going out earlier than they did when he robbed Francisco Lindor of a home run in Game 3 of the ALDS.

Only three previous times have both leagues' Rookie of the Year been awarded unanimously: Benito Santiago and Mark McGwire in 1987, Mike Piazza and Tim Salmon in 1993 and Scott Rolen and Nomar Garciaparra in 1997.

The first position player, according to Elias, to stand at least 6-foot-7 and weigh 282 pounds, the right-handed hitting Judge wasn't even named as the Yankees' starting right fielder until the final week of spring training, winning a battle against Aaron Hicks.

For Judge, Monday's honor may have been a mere appetizer to a main course that could arrive Thursday, when he is considered a leading contender, along with Houston's Jose Altuve, for AL most valuable player. The 22-year-old, who split time between first base and the outfield, batted.271 with 97 RBIs for the National League champions.
