Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge had a slow start to the 2023 MLB season in the power department by his standard. After setting an American League record with 62 home runs last season, Judge hit five homers in April, his fewest in a full month since July 2021. But the reigning AL MVP has four home runs in his last two games, including two homers on Monday against the Blue Jays, and could be on his way to a streak to catapult him back to the top of the MLB DFS player pool.
