MLB stars are unstoppable right now

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Aaron Judge burst onto the scene in 2017 paying for the Yankees, and hitting 52 home runs in his rookie year. This was a major-league record until Pete Alonso broke it in 2020. He’s a 2 time all star in 2017 and 2018. He was 2nd in the MVP voting in 2017 to Jose Altuve, which is a controversy now that the Astros cheating scandal came out. He won rookie of the year that season too, and a silver slugger. In 2017, he was leading the major leagues in home runs, walks and runs.

Aaron Judge is back at it again in the 2020 season. He hit 7 home runs in 5 games during the start of the season, and leads the majors in RBI’s and homers. In the last 7 games, he is hitting .304 with 4 homers and 9 RBI’s in only 23 at bats. He struck out 3 times against Tampa Bay on Friday night.

Mike Trout had a child on July 30th, 2020. He returned to the Los Angeles Angels lineup on August 3rd and has hit 3 home runs in the next 3 games, including his 5th career birthday blast. He has hit 5 home runs this year, with 4 coming in the past 7 games. In 40 at bats, he is hitting .325, 5 home runs, and 11 RBI. He has only struck ou 9 times in the past 10 games. This isn’t anything new to him because many people consider him a the best player in the league. There is not much that needs to be said about him.

Nicholas Castellanos is a right fielder for the Cincinatti Reds and has tied Aaron Judge for the major league lead in home runs at 7. In 403 at bats last year he hit 11 home runs. It is a shortened season this year, but he would be on pace to hit 56 home runs in that many at bats, based on how many he has hit so far this year. So far in 50 at bats he has 12 runs, 17 hits, 7 home runs, 16 RBI’s and 5 walks. He is swinging a hot bat, with a .340 average. He leads the league in slugging percentage, on base plus slugging, and is tied for the lead in home runs.

Nelson Cruz

Nelson Cruz is 40 years old!!!! He has 15 RBI’s, 3 homers which he hit in one game, and a .365 average in 52 at bats. He has struck out 14 times, which is a high number for 52 at bats. But with 3 homers and 15 runs batted in, you can’t complain too much. Especially when you are getting this much production from a 40 year old and your team was the first to reach 10 wins. That team of course being the Twins, who are off to a scorching hot start in the shortened season.
