Aaron Judge has a new record to add to his already impressive resume.
The Yankees right fielder hit his 70th career home run, becoming the fastest MLB player to reach that feat, according to ESPN Stats & Info. He reached that mark in his 231st career game against the Angels on Saturday.
The previous record was held by longtime Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard, who had 70 homers in 233 games.
Ubaldo Jimenez once told me, ‘if you pitch here your off-speed pitch will have a different angle or different movement,’ Chen said. I heard that, so I think I need to make some adjustment to it, but actually it’s kind of hard to make the adjustment on the field while you’re pitching.

This was the final charge pending from his two arrests, that took place in a nine-month span. He had faced four felony charges from the two arrests (on May 7, 2017 at a music festival in Miami Beach and Jan. 19 from a traffic stop in Sunrise, Florida), but all were dismissed. The misdemeanor charge remaining was from the Jan. 19 incident.
Anderson is still subject to possible discipline from the NFL, which is still reviewing the matter. He will meet with league investigators on a future date.
He said at last week’s mandatory minicamp that he doesn’t expect to be suspended.
Naturally, we hope the league will see it for what it is and not impose any suspension on him, considering the actions the court took — and the state took, O’Donnell told ESPN. He’s a good citizen and I hope it doesn’t impact in any way, shape or form on his professional career — and it shouldn’t.
The no contest plea was first reported by NFL Network.
