Is underreporting of Judge's post HR Derby injury costing him the MVP?

In September we are seeing the return of Judge's Ruthian capabilities and this casts more doubt on the supposed six week slump. Recently, he's modified his stance, he's reaching the sliders down and away, and his timing is as good as the first half. I find it hard to believe that the sudden and durable slide in stats was just a guy in a slump and his September stats bears this out. However, on the Yanks post game today the discussion was about this alleged slump and how writers may factor this into the all-star voting. If the Yanks came clean about Judge's shoulder, if that is the case, it would weigh heavily in him possibly getting the MVP.
