Mike Stobe

The Yankees selected OF Aaron Judge with the No. 32 overall pick of the 2013 MLB Draft. Judge is a big outfield prospect, standing 6'7, 255 pounds.

The New York Yankees have selected Fresno State outfielder Aaron Judge with the 32nd pick of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft.

Judge, 21, hails from Linden, Calif., and projects to be a right fielder at the next level. He's listed at 6'7 and 255 pounds. After completing high school, Judge was selected in the 31st round by the Oakland Athletics in 2010. He turned them down and headed to college, playing three seasons in Fresno. He hit .345/.451/.529 with 18 home runs during his junior campaign.

With his size and strength, Judge has potential to hit for 30 home runs down the road, ESPN writes. However, they note he hasn't always hit for power in college, raising some questions about his makeup at the plate. Judge tends to strike out more than most, although MLB's Jonathan Mayo notes he has good plate discipline. Mayo also lauds his throwing arm, noting he has all the tools to make a good right fielder.
