One of the Yankees’ best sluggers has put pen to paper.
Aaron Judge and the Bombers agreed Friday to a one-year, $8.5 million contract according to MLB Network. The move means both parties get to avoid arbitration, with Judge taking in easily the largest salary of his young career.
Judge earned a salary of $684,300 during his fourth season in 2019. The outfielder batted .272 and tallied 27 home runs in 102 regular season games after missing the early stages of the season with injury.
The Yankees also locked up Gio Urshela and Gary Sanchez earlier in the day.
