Some who post on the site know our son has started a baseball site called Straight108. While Jason most often devotes his articles and analysis to the SF Giants (pretty challenging this year) he used the All Star break to evaluate Aaron Judge. Since he coached against him in college for 3 seasons, he had his scouting reports as a reference point to use both in a "projection" assessment and for a contrasting development analysis.
Since both projection and development above the HS level are often hot topics on this site, but very hard to apply, I thought I would post Jason's assessment which he just published, including some video analysis. To me, it is so interesting since it traces back to HS, through college, the Cape, Milb, the struggles in MLB in 2016 and Jason's views on why Judge is having so much success is 2017 traceable to pitch recognition relating to a small change in the approach (vertical and horizontal) in visualizing pitches.
I hope some will find this article useful in better understanding the journey is full of challenges and this includes those who play the game and those who project who will be successful in playing the game.
