The first season of Aaron Judge‘s nine-year, $360 million contract with the New York Yankees wasn’t as healthy as he would’ve liked. That man still hit his homers, though, slugging 37 in just 106 games played. How many will he send over the wall in 2024? We’re going to keep track right here with our Aaron Judge Home Run Tracker.

Similar to what we did in 2023, this will be a central location for all of the outfielder’s 2024 yardwork. The information you can expect to see includes the date and opponent, along with the distance and exit velocity for each dinger.

Where Judge Stands in Yankees History

The 2024 campaign is an important one for Judge. Every season as a member of the Yankees is important, but I’m talking about the milestone he’s fast approaching in the home run department.

Since making his MLB debut in 2016, the right-handed slugger has launched 268 taters (as of 5/16/2024). That already has him ranked ninth in franchise history. He began the year in 10th place but passed Derek Jeter a few weeks into the regular season.

A fully healthy campaign could include another 40-plus homers, which would help him become the sixth Yankees player ever to slug at least 300 homers for the club.

Could Judge enter what has become the increasingly exclusive 500-homer club before all is said and done? He has enough time on his current contract to have a shot – he’s signed through 2031.

The next couple of seasons will be crucial to his chances of reaching that milestone. As it currently stands, there are 13 active MLB players with 300-plus homers. Stanton is the active leader with 408 homers (as of 5/16/2024). The most recent hitter to reach the 500-homer club is Detroit Tigers first baseman/designated hitter Miguel Cabrera. He joined the club in 2021 and finished his career with 511 homers.

Notable Single-Season Performances

Being on the doorstep of 300 career homers after seven-plus years in the big leagues means Judge enjoyed a few monster single-season performances. He’s finished near the 40-homer plateau on two occasions – he hit 39 in 2021 and 37 in 2023.

But it was what the right-handed slugger did in 2017 and 2022 that set him apart, especially from other Yankee hitters. Judge’s AL Rookie of the Year campaign in 2017 included a league-leading 52 home runs. That broke Mark McGwire’s record for the most home runs hit by a rookie in a single season. While this record only stood for a couple of seasons before Pete Alonso broke it in 2019, Judge can always say he’s the first MLB rookie to reach the half-century mark.

The 2022 season was another record-breaking one. He passed fellow Yankee Roger Maris to set a new single-season American League home run record with 62 dingers. He still fell eight homers shy of Barry Bonds’ record, but it was a huge accomplishment nonetheless. That led the league, as did his 131 RBI, 133 runs scored, 111 walks, and 1.111 OPS. After finishing second to Jose Altuve in the 2017 AL MVP Award voting, Judge captured the award in 2022 by beating out Shohei Ohtani.

Home/Away Splits Breakdown

There isn’t a ballpark in baseball that can hold Aaron Judge’s power. He displays it regularly, like with the 473-foot dinger he slugged on May 9. However, it’s worth noting that Judge is fortunate to call Yankee Stadium his home park. According to Statcast’s Park Factors, the Bronx has consistently been one of the easiest places to hit homers over the past three years.

With that advantage, how much better of a hitter is he at home compared to being on the road?

When looking at his career splits, it’s not much different. As of 5/15/2024, Judge has produced a .294/.409/.609 line with 137 homers, 72 doubles, and 305 RBI at Yankee Stadium in 1,863 plate appearances. That susses out to a 1.018 OPS. On the road, his triple slash is .266/.381/.556, which is a .936 OPS. It’s accompanied by 130 homers, 75 doubles, and 294 RBI in 1,949 plate appearances.

Judge’s Monthly Stat Breakdown

Another question some might be wondering is whether there are certain times of the year Judge has historically produced better than others. By looking at his monthly breakdown on Baseball-Reference, he typically likes to start and finish strong.

Here’s a look at pertinent monthly stats (as of 5/15/2024):

  • March/April: .940 OPS, 47 homers, 29 doubles, 109 RBI
  • May: 1.082 OPS, 49 homers, 28 doubles, 112 RBI
  • June: .941 OPS, 35 homers, 17 doubles, 80 RBI
  • July: .961 OPS, 36 homers, 16 doubles, 79 RBI
  • August: .917 OPS, 46 homers, 26 doubles, 105 RBI
  • September/October: 1.020 OPS, 54 homers, 31 doubles, 114 RBI

It helps that he’s historically stepped to the plate more often in March/April, May, August, and September/October than June and July throughout his career. And while his OPS tells us he’s an elite hitter regardless of where we are in the calendar, this shows us when we can expect more homers to fly off his bat.
