I wrote an article before the playoffs looking at each starter’s postseason success at this point in their careers. And while there was a wide range of playoff experience on the roster, Aaron Judge was without a doubt the most dominant postseason starter on the team.
Heading into the 2019 playoffs, Judge had accumulated 79 plate appearances between the 2017 and 2018 playoff runs. He’d been absolutely dominant. Across 79 plate appearances, he had 17 hits, 7 of which are home runs. Additionally, he’d walked 12 times. Those stats were good enough for a .412 wOBA and 162 wRC+.
