According to Jon Heyman, the San Francisco Giants offered Aaron Judge in what is “‘believed to be’ around $360 million.” It’s unknown how long the duration of the deal is, but for now, that seems like a strong offer.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported last week the Yankees have an offer on the table worth around $300 million over eight years, but they could increase it depending on how far the Giants are willing to push the market.
Judge is from California and was drafted out of high school by the Oakland Athletics in the 31st round in 2010. He elected to go to college at Fresno State and developed into a first-round pick by the Yankees three years later.
Judge set an AL record with 62 homers during the 2022 season. He also led MLB in on-base percentage (.425), slugging percentage (.686) and total bases (391).
