FanGraphs | Jay Jaffe: Aaron Judge’s start to 2024 has been underwhelming. Over the last two seasons, he’s established himself as the best hitter in the game. Expectations are sky high, and for good reason. Jaffe’s thorough analysis of the various aspects of Judge’s offensive profile comes out with a positive conclusion. Judge’s approach is unchanged, and he does not appear hampered by the toe injury he suffered last year. Hopefully, the last couple games were an indicator that he is returning to form.

The Athletic ($) | Chris Kirschner: Like his captain teammate, Gleyber Torres is off to a poor start, but in the case of Torres, the public confidence is not as high as it is for Judge. Torres has had up-and-down performances for most of his career. After being the best version of himself last year, there was hope that the 2023 Torres was here to stay. It’s too soon to conclude anything, but Kirschner had the opportunity to speak with Torres about his mindset. As you likely know, it’s Torres’ contract year. His performance this season will determine how much he gets. He told Kirschner it wasn’t on his mind. Let’s hope that is true and he starts producing.

ABC 7 | Sam Ryan: Jenny Cavnar, Oakland Athletics play-by-play announcer, has something in common with Yankees’ iconic radio voice, Suzyn Waldman. They are both trailblazers in Major League Baseball play-by-play announcing. This series was the first time where both called the same game, with the Yankees matching up against the Athletics in a four-game series.

MLB.com | Mark Feinsand: The Bronx Children’s Museum and The Player’s Alliance have partnered together and unveiled a new mural. The mural features six living Black baseball legends that have all left their mark on Yankees’ history either in recent years or decades ago. Willie Randolph, Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield, CC Sabathia, Derek Jeter, and Aaron Judge are all featured in the mural created by the Bronx-born artist, André Trenier.
