The Toronto Blue Jays think they know why Aaron Judge was looking off to the side during his 8th-inning at-bat on Monday night.

Judge homered twice and walked three times in his New York Yankees’ 7-4 win over the Jays. Toronto’s TV announcers made note of how Judge was glancing out the side of his eyes before homering in the 8th (watch here).

Judge said after the game that he was looking over to his dugout because he was monitoring his teammates. The Jays said they were going to look into things.

So what was happening?

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Toronto thinks they were tipping pitches and that Judge was glancing to get the tip from his coaches/teammates.

The Blue Jays also apparently took issue with the positioning of the Yankees’ base coaches.

Suffice it to say the Blue Jays aren’t buying Judge’s explanation. It sure seems like they feel Judge and the Yankees were taking advantage of something New York noticed.
