Fans of the New York Yankees can now relax during the Major League Baseball offseason as it has been reported by mlb.com today (Wednesday, December 7) that Aaron Judge has agreed to a nine-year, $360 million deal to remain with the team.
While baseball fans everywhere were tracking the latest rumors for weeks, Judge was in the midst of free agency for the first time ever following his record-breaking year with the “Bronx Bombers.” The New York Yankees finished the regular season with a 99-63 record and first in the AL East division.
The 30-year-old and AL MVP was selected in the 2013 MLB Draft from Fresno State University and has been showcasing his pinstripe pride as a Yankee ever since.
While we all hoped we’d see Judge return to Yankee Stadium in the spring of 2023, he’s now locked in for 9 more years and has received the largest free-agent deal in MLB history.
