Judge has not turned in a long stretch in which he seems to hit homer after homer, but his overall numbers are not far off his amazing Rookie-of-the-Year pace. While Judge has not be able to get on an extended hot streak, he's also been able to refrain from falling into a lengthy drought at the plate.
Torres put together a historically torrid streak to kick off his career and he's manufactured plenty of clutch hits through his first 241 plate appearances in the big leagues. It will be interesting to see if he's back to full strength in time for the game, and if so, we have to wonder if he'll even play.
Severino not only made his second All-Star team -- he might have a chance to be named the starter to this one based on his fantastic season thus far. Severino is no longer an up-and-coming star; he's among the best starting pitchers in the entire game.
Chapman is pitching like the reliever the Yankees expected when they inked him to a five-year, $86 million before last season. Chapman's become every bit as much a pitcher this season as he is a flame-thrower. Chapman's confidence in his off-speed pitches have magnified his high-velocity offerings, making him extremely difficult to hit this season.
