Aaron Judge, the star of the New York Yankees, is still going strong, hitting his season-high 58th & 59th home run. And surprisingly, the Milwaukee Brewers were in opposition to these home runs. It looks like Judge is exerting every effort to help the New York Yankees snap out of their second-half skid this year. The outfielder is getting close, and now he is only three home runs away from Roger Maris’ single-season record. He has also achieved the record for most multi-HR games (11) in MLB history. Nevertheless, the baseman is more concerned with getting his team into the MLB playoffs.
Aaron Judge Hits 59th Homerun!

Most recently, Aaron Judge has had one of the best offensive seasons. Every time Judge takes the mound, brilliance is anticipated.

However, it would be the icing on the cake if Aaron Judge’s club enters the playoffs in the 2022 MLB season. However, the top New York Yankees player has decided not to sign a contract extension with the team. Instead, he placed a wager on himself over the summer. And looks like the bet has paid off.
Anthony Rizzo Returns To Yankees After Injury!
On the other hand, Yankees’ first baseman Anthony Rizzo was activated off the Injured list by the New York Yankees on Sunday. Meanwhile, outfielder Estevan Florial was sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In the Sunday series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers, Rizzo batted second after leadoff hitter and American League MVP front-runner Aaron Judge. He finished 3-for-6 with a single home run in the Yankees’ 12-8 triumph.
Last week, Rizzo stated that he was almost ready to play again after no longer experiencing the headaches that were a side effect of receiving an epidural injection to cure his ailing lower back. The first baseman’s slugging prowess forced him to miss practice because of migraines. It prevented him from playing baseball on September 6. However, after receiving treatment with an epidural blood patch for two weeks, Rizzo’s recovered from migraines. And as a result, Rizzo was called back into the bullpen.
