Aaron Judge (31, New York Yankees), who hit three home runs in one game, was named the player who had the hottest week in the American League.
The Major League Secretariat announced on the 26th (Korean time) that Judge was selected as the American League Player of the Week. This is his ninth award in his career.
Previously, Judge received this award three times last year, and this season he was also named the best player in May. If it weren’t for injuries this season, he would have been able to win three awards.
In five games over the past week, Judge recorded a batting average of 0.529, 3 home runs, 8 RBIs, 4 runs, 9 hits, an on-base percentage of 0.619, and an OPS of 1.854.토토사이트
In particular, Judge recorded 3 home runs and 6 RBIs in the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on the 23rd. He also had four hits, including one double.
As a result, his grades also improved significantly. In 101 games until the 25th, Judge recorded a batting average of 0.268, 35 home runs, 71 RBI, 74 runs, 94 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.404 and an OPS of 1.013.
Although it is difficult to achieve the required number of at-bats due to an injury that prevents him from playing in many games, there is a high possibility that he will end this season with an OPS exceeding 1.000.
Judge hit 35 home runs despite being unable to play in many games due to injury. The biggest goal for the 2024 season is expected to be to play in as many games without injury.
