Aaron Judge thrilled with spot in the order — and baseballs aren’t

0 Comment

In his second season and batting in the second spot in the Yankees’ order, Aaron Judge, quite simply, is the Second Coming.

Why does Judge absolutely love nfl jerseys cheap china batting second in this Yankees order? It comes down to his personality and his willingness to help the team.

Judge is batting .340 on the season with a .470 on-base percentage and is currently powering through an 11-game hitting streak — when the Yankees can sneak in a game between the cold and the rain.

Over that span, the big fella is hitting .390 with a .528 on-base percentage and a .654 slugging percentage.

Batting second is home now.

“I really like it,’’ Judge told The Post at Comerica Park after the Yankees-Tigers game was rained out Saturday. “I like being in the action right away. I always hated it like when last year I was hitting like seventh, eighth or ninth, I had to sit there and wait around, wait around, wait around, the anticipation would build.

His second at-bat can come just as quickly with the Yankees’ deep lineup that features Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius.

Batting in the two-spot, Judge said: “I’ve got no pressure on me with the team we’ve got. With ‘G’ the reigning MVP and Didi and Gary, I’m having fun. With [Brett Gardner] leading off and getting on base.’’

Don’t forget, Judge is coming off left shoulder surgery after winning Rookie of the Year honors.159

“I knew I probably wouldn’t start off as hot as I wanted to because I missed a lot of swings in the offseason,’’ he said. “I knew spring training was going to be a grind and the beginning of the season was going to be a grind because I would be getting used to seeing curveballs again.authentic nfl jerseys  In spring training I’m just trying to get my timing for a fastball and all of a sudden the season starts and I’m not getting all fastballs then. It was a couple games getting my timing in and now the biggest thing is just sticking to my plan.’’

The plan is working. Swing at pitches he can handle, be patient at the plate. All that avoids a sophomore slump.
