Yankees and AL MVP Aaron Judge agree to nine-year, $384 million trade, a source told s Mark Feinsand Wednesday.

The club has yet to confirm this deal which is pending physical. This would be the largest contract awarded to a free agent in MLB history, surpassing Bryce Harpers – year, $242 Million Dollar vs. Phillies at 2019.

Judge was in an embarrassing situation when he first entered free agency. Enviable position, after rejecting a seven-year contract, he has exceeded all expectations, $157.5 million pre-season extension.

As Yankees general manager Brian Cashman put it, it was “the best bet ever made.” Judge responded with an eternal season, batting. 211/ .384/.384 exist139 In the home run game leading the major leagues (32), Run(70), RBI (

), slugging percentage, hitting percentage, OPS+ (131) and total bases (384).

Judge Chase Smash Roger Maris’s 32 The AL single-season home run record has fascinated the sports world for weeks, culminating in 32 Home run in Game 2 of a doubles game at Texas on Oct. 4. Judge is the fourth player in AL/NL history to hit the ball 39 or more home runs in a single season, join Barry Bonds (99 exist1999), Mark McGuire (66 exist686 and39 at 686) and Sammy Sosa ( 65 exist1998, 64 exist2001 and63 exist1999).

“Whatever he gets will be astronomical, and he deserves it,” first baseman Anthony Rizzo said. “He’s betting on the biggest stage, the biggest market, and doing it with ease. He deserves to be rewarded as the highest paid player in the game. He’s the new gold standard, in my opinion.”
However The postseason hasn’t been smooth for the Judges, and manager Aaron Boone said the home run chase could be a factor. In nine playoff games, Judge has hit .131 (5-Change-22) With two home runs and three RBIs. He is 1 for 11 in a four-game AL Championship Series sweep in Houston. After the Yankees’ playoff elimination, Judge was asked if he still wanted to stay in New York.
” I’ve known that since I first wore pinstripes,” the judge said that night. “But we can’t get some things done before spring training, and now I’m a free agent. We’ll see what happens.”

Judge is a product of Linden, California, who grew up supporting the San Francisco Giants (his favorite player Not Bonds, but infielder Rich Aurilia), who has worn Yankees pinstripes his entire career thus far, was selected in the first round (18nd overall ) of 2017 MLB draft from Fresno State University in California.
