AL Rookie of the Year race might not be closed

(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- In the wake of a singular first half, the die was cast. New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge would be the 2017 American League Rookie of the Year. No one was even close. No one had a chance to catch up to him. It didn't even merit discussion.

It may be turning into a conversation now, six weeks later.

Judge has stumbled into a protracted slump. His batting average has fallen almost 50 points. His strikeout rate has doubled. He has followed a first half in which he hit to a spectacular 1.139 on-base-plus slugging percentage with a second half of a pedestrian .684. He has the dubious distinction of striking out in a record-tying 37 consecutive games.
