The Yankees may have won big last night against the Kansas City Royals, but suffered one of their most significant losses of the season when they lost Aaron Judge for at least the next three to four weeks to an ulnar styloid fracture after being hit by a pitch on his right wrist. This injury sent the Bronx Faithful into a panic; they conducted a candlelight vigil at Yankee stadium for their wounded outfielder, and everyone suggesting their ideas of how Brian Cashman and company should fill the enormous hole left by their gargantuan slugger.

The Yankees are now 22-10 and are only half of a game back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East standings. The Yankees have proven they are for real and will undoubtedly be in the playoff picture come October, but this does not mean the team is not flawless. Where do teams typically try to patch up the holes on their roster? The Trade Deadline. I know the season is roughly a month and some change away from prime trade talks, but I wanted to do an early preview of the areas of need the Yankees may have and who they might pursue.
Aaron Judge has seemingly done it all on the field since he debuted in the majors in the summer of 2016. He hit a home run in his first at-bat, broke the rookie home run record, has had a section in Yankee Stadium designed for him, and has set the standard for StatCast metrics with his unreal exit velocity, but what occurred Wednesday night in Toronto was one of the most feel good stories for the Yankees in 2018. This would have never happened, however, without a standard of sportsmanship established by the “Aaron Judge Kid’s” family.
