Thoughts

As you can tell from his stats, Judge is a huge man and with that comes two things. One is a large level of sheer power but the other is a large strike zone. For Judge, he used his raw size to develop jump off the bat but he could use some time to work on the proper swing plane to maximize the power potential. He got limited big show experience in 2016 and was exposed given his number of strikeouts. To his defense, he does a solid job of staying within his strike zone and does not often chase pitches destined for the dirt. In the long run that exposure will be beneficial as he learns to adjust to the top level of pitching. Like many young players he need to get the bat on the ball more and avoid walking back to the dgout

Defensively he is a serviceable but not great right fielder. He has a cannon for an arm but an average glove. While not an asset, he will not be a liability in the field. After all, corner outfielders with average gloves and big arms can have long careers. That is more than welcome for a player with 40 plus home run power. The upside is huge for the power hitting outfielder who has the expectation of succeeding Carlos Beltran in right field sooner rather than later.
