With the playoffs set to end soon, there will soon be a heated contest over who signs Aaron Judge, who becomes a free agent next month. According to MLB insider by Jon Heyman, Aaron Judge’s opportunities to extend his contract with the New York Yankees are looking better than they have in a long time.

After that, Heyman went on to say that the Yankees had a significant competition coming from the San Francisco Giants. Despite this, they should continue to negotiate a deal with the outfielder who is 30 years old and is available through free agency.

The insider said:

“But I think we’re all pretty, I don’t want to say confident, but the Yankees and people in New York feel Judge is most likely to come back to the Yankees. It’s probably even 10 or 15 percent that he goes anywhere else beside the Yankees. It would not behoove him to leave, it really wouldn’t.”

In the ALDS Game, Aaron Judge affirmed his preference for the Yankees.

Aaron Judge turned down a seven-year, $213.5 million contract extension at first. This would have made him the second highest-paid average outfielder in baseball. But if Judge has a great season with the team and they make it to the World Series, he could be back in the Bronx in 2023.

All-Rise was hoping for a 10-year, $360 million contract extension, like the one Mike Trout got with the Los Angeles Angels.

In 2016, Aaron Judge joined the New York Yankees. In 2017, he was named Rookie of the Year. But after a few seasons of average numbers, Judge has stepped up his game this year. He had the most home runs, runs, RBIs, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and on-base plus slugging percentage.

The end of the regular season was the best part of his season. He hit his 62nd home run putting him ahead of Roger Maris, who had held the record since 1961.

With a history of injuries, a long-term contract could be risky for the Yankees’ backroom staff now that he is in his 30s. But after a monster season in which he broke records, he will be worth a lot on the market.

What do you think? Will Aaron Judge be back in the Bronx in 2023 despite a not-so-good playoff season?
