New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is enduring a rough start to the 2024 season, and questionable calls from the umpires aren’t helping his cause.

On Tuesday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Aaron Judge faced off against dominant pitcher Zac Gallen in the third inning. Despite battling Gallen to a full count, the Yankees superstar, known for his imposing stature and power hitting, was called out on a strike that appeared to be well below the strike zone.

Aaron Judge, typically known for his composure even in heated situations, displayed visible frustration with the call. This incident adds to a growing list of questionable strike calls against him throughout his career. Remarkably, the New York Yankees captain has never been ejected from a game despite these frustrations.

  1. My question really is: At what point does the MLBPA or the Yankees front office do something drastic? YES Network last night had a very telling stat about pitches low that were called strikes: Judge us the leader with 489 such strikes. #2? that Xander Boegarts with 368 duck called pitches. That is called a runaway leader. But nothing will happen to the umpires because MLB umpires cannot lose their jobs due to their performance.
