Soto Rallies For Aaron Judge Amid Tough Series vs Jays!


Juan Soto stood up for his teammate and captain Aaron Judge after the latter went hitless in the first two games of the series loss against the Blue Jays. He said the world knows the kind of player Judge is and how he possesses the ability to create destruction on a given day. “Tough series for him, you just gotta forget about it and keep going,” said Soto.
