Report: Aaron Judge receives huge contract offer from Yankees

Aaron Judge looking on

The New York Yankees are launching a major effort to keep Aaron Judge, according to a report.

MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported that the Yankees made a multi-year contract offer to Judge last weekend, via Ryan Chichester of WFAN. The Yankees are reportedly willing to pay Judge around $30 million annually, but would be reluctant to go beyond six or seven years on the length of the deal.

Judge is eligible to become a free agent at the end of the season, and has suggested he would prefer not to negotiate a contract once the regular season begins. That leaves about a week for the two sides to get something done. He’s well-established as one of the league’s best power hitters, and delivered 39 home runs in 2021.

Judge has suggested that he wants to stay with the Yankees, but the terms of the contract will matter most of all. The length sounds like it may be a sticking point more than anything else.
