MLB has released their weekly Hitter Power Rankings, and Los Angeles Dodgers star Shohei Ohtani unsurprisingly ranks atop the list. Mookie Betts, Juan Soto, Marcell Ozuna, Kyle Tucker, William Contreras, Aaron Judge, Ryan Jeffers, Salvador Perez, and Alec Bohm rounded out MLB's top-10.

While Ohtani ranking atop the list was inarguable, as the Dodgers star ranks first in multiple MLB hitting categories, New York Yankees fans are not happy with star outfielder Aaron Judge coming in at 7th on the list. Those fans have made their opinion known on X (formerly known as Twitter), sharing replies to MLB's post:

While Judge started the year slow, he is hitting .417 over his last seven games with three homers, which has raised his OPS on the season to .948 which ranks 7th in all of baseball and 3rd in the American League.

In their explanation for Judge's ranking, MLB wrote the following:

"Tucker isn’t the only established star AL outfielder to be making his season debut on this list, as The Judge has started getting back on track after an uncharacteristically poor start to the year. Through April 22, Judge had a paltry .174 batting average to go with a .645 OPS. In 20 games since then, he has cranked seven dingers, along with a .310 average and 1.119 OPS, giving the Yankees the lethal outfield they envisioned this offseason."

If Judge keeps hitting at this level, he will not only challenge Ohtani for the top spot on this list, but we be firmly in the AL MVP race.
