The Yankees’ Aaron Judge and the Reds’ Nick Castellanos were named the MLB Players of the Week presented by Chevrolet on Monday.
Judge homered in all five games last week to earn American League honors, crushing six homers in all. On Sunday night against the rival Red Sox, he hit two big blasts — including a tiebreaking two-run shot in the bottom of the eighth, which propelled New York to a three-game sweep.
Overall, Judge hit .368 with a 1.794 OPS and 13 RBIs last week, helping the Yankees go 5-0.
He’s now a three-time AL Player of the Week Award recipient, as he won twice during his rookie season in 2017.
