Corey Kluber is the ace the Yankees need

Corey Kluber is the difference maker and impact arm the Yankees need atop their rotation.  In 2017 and 2018, Yankee fans wished ace-like status on Luis Severino, but his inconsistencies have left him just short of owning the name.  Kluber, 32, has been the definition of consistent for the Cleveland Indians, winning 18+ games four out of the last five years and winning 20 games in 2018 for the first time in his career. Kluber has posted an ERA below 3.50 every season since 2014, and has struck out at least 220 hitters in the same span. Kluber keeps getting better, and is not showing any signs of regression. Kluber is an ace, the ace the Yankees need.

Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez to compete in Home Run Derby

Aaron Judge has taken the MLB by storm this year, and now has announced that he will compete in the 2017 Home Run derby, and according to Judge, he’s bringing a friend. In a video released through the Yankees social media, Judge told fans that he has accepted his invitation to the Home Run Derby, and also told fans that fellow teammate Gary Sanchez will be joining him in Miami, making it both their first All-Star game and first Home Run derby.

Judge has had an MVP caliber season, currently hitting .327 and leading the league in home runs with 27, including several that have gone well over 400 feet. Judge has also become arguably the biggest story in baseball this season, with his jersey already being spotted all over the stadium in every game he plays.

Gary missed most of April with an arm injury after an awkward swing in Baltimore, but has recovered nicely since coming back, hitting .289 with 13 home runs in 51 games this season after hitting 20 in 53 games last season. Sanchez has also had his fair share of long distance home runs this year.

The news comes with much excitement amongst baseball fans, and especially Yankees fans, as they will get to see the two most powerful hitters on their team attempt to bring the Home Run derby crown back to the Bronx. Judge and Sanchez will attempt to be the fourth Yankee to win the derby, and the first since Robinson Cano won it back in 2011. The Yankees had a creative way of announcing it, using their Twitter account to break the news, and you can see that video right here.
