Yankees to make Aaron Judge extension offer by opener

Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees couldn’t agree before the MLB arbitration deadline earlier this week, but general manager Brian Cashman still thinks the team could soon reach an extension with his star right fielder.

“Between now and opening day, we’ll make an offer and obviously he’ll get an offer and all the conversations will have happened and will resolve to a multi-year deal or not,” Cashman said Saturday, according to The Associated Press (via ESPN). “We’re committed. We’ll make an offer and hear what he has to say in response, and then it’ll be in pencil before opening day.”

Judge, 29, was the 2017 American League Rookie of the Year when he led the league in homers with 52 and walks with 127. He won All-Star honors again in 2018, but sustained injuries for much of the next two seasons. before making his All-Star Game return in 2021. He finished fourth in AL MVP voting last year after hitting 39 homers with 98 RBIs.

With Judge due to reach free agency next year, he told reporters he ‘wants to be a Yankee for life’ and thinks both sides can ‘find a number that works for both’ parties. .

The Yankees are scheduled to start the regular season on April 7 with a home series against the Boston Red Sox.
