Aaron Judge has been the biggest superstar for the New York Yankees in the last few years. In fact, he was the only superstar slugger on the team until Juan Soto came in the offseason. Last year, the Bronx Bombers realized the importance of having multiple superstar hitters. They relied heavily on the 2022 AL MVP. But the new captain of the NY side hurt his toe during a freak accident at the Los Angeles Dodgers fence. Later, it turned out that the 16th captain of the Yankees franchise history suffered a torn ligament.

As a result, he was out of the lineup for almost two months. In his absence, the Yankees could not maintain a winning streak and eventually failed to make the postseason. That’s when the NY side planned to bring reinforcements in their offense and outfield. Finally, the Yankees landed the best hitter in baseball for a year. Now, the Bronx Bombers look really good, with the duo of Aaron Judge and Juan Soto powering their offense. Lately, the superstar of the Atlanta Braves, Ronald Acuna Jr., said both Judge and Soto are on his list of top 5 MLB players.

Last year, Ronald Acuna Jr. had a terrific season for the Atlanta Braves. As a result, he won the National League Most Valuable Player. Recently, the reigning NL MVP had an interview with Complex Sports and MLB. During that conversation, Acuna Jr. shared the names of those he believes are the best players in the league. Moreover, on the list of the Braves superstar, there are a lot of big hitters who made it. Among them, the Yankees captain Aaron Judge is number four on Ronald’s list. Juan Soto, the new big addition to the Yankees roster, is number three on that list.

However, Ronald Acuna Jr. presented another list. It was about who he considers to have the “Most swag.” Neither Aaron Judge nor Juan Soto made that list. As per the Atlanta Braves superstar, Julio Rodriguez has the most swag in the league. On that list, Acuna Jr. put himself at number five. Moreover, the reigning NL MVP had put Rodriguez at number five on his previous list of top-five players. Ronald Acuna Jr. believes the young generation of players have some other level of style that attracts more fans, and it is important for the growth of baseball.

Like Aaron Judge, The Braves Superstar Is Also Chasing A World Series Victory

Ronald Acuna Jr. said Shohei Ohtani, Juan Soto, and Aaron Judge are among the top five players in the major league. Among these names, only Juan Soto has experienced a World Series victory with the Washington Nationals. But Ohtani and Judge are still looking for their first World Series. Even the Braves Superstar is looking for the “Big Dance” as well. The Atlanta Braves won the title in 2021.

But the Braves’ leadoff hitter missed out on that victory due to injuries. Since then, Ronald Acuna Jr. has been chasing the dream of being a World champion. On the other hand, if the NY Yankees win their 28th title this year, it will be the second one for the Dominican superstar. But can Soto help Aaron Judge break the deadlock for himself and the team?
