Will Aaron Judge stick around in New York?

The slugging outfielder rejected a seven-year, $213.5 million contract before Opening Day and will become a free agent after the season.


Yankees president Randy Levine hopes Judge decides to re-sign with New York and remain in the Bronx for years to come.

Levine spoke about re-signing Judge on FOX News Radio’s The Brian Kilmeade Show:

“We’re going to try our very, very best to sign him. We think the world of him. We think he’s a great player. We think he’s a great Yankee. And you know, that’s something that will happen in the off-season. … We’re going to put our best foot forward and try and keep him. We know his worth to the franchise. We know his worth to the Yankees. He’s been carrying us and doing it with great poise and dignity. And we’ll see what happens in the off-season. It won’t be for a lack of trying.”

Judge leads MLB with 59 home runs, just two shy of the club and American League record of 61, set by Roger Maris in 1961. But to Judge, the home run king is Barry Bonds, who reportedly used performance-enhancing drugs while on the way to hitting 73 home runs in 2001.

Levine said:

“Well, I think that the record book says it’s Bonds. I think that’s what he says. And until the record book gets changed, it’s Bonds.”
