The only gap larger than the one between Aaron Judge's two front teeth is the gap between how much power he has compared to the next most powerful guy in the big leagues.

On Sunday, Judge splattered a baseball 496-feet against the Orioles. It's the longest home run in the majors since ESPN began tracking with advanced technology in 2009.

The Yankees got Judge with the 32nd pick in the 2013 draft. Even though he's 25 years old he's still a rookie, who just so happens to lead the American League in batting average (.344), home runs (21) and RBI (47).

Twins third baseman Miguel Sano is right behind him with 46 RBI.
