New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Saturday that the team will make a long-term contract extension offer to Aaron Judge before Opening Day.
Judge’s camp and New York have mutual interest on getting a deal done, but they were far apart on terms in the recent past.
The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent at the end of the 2022 season if a deal isn’t met.
Judge has a career .276 batting average with 158 home runs, 366 RBI, and 89 runs since entering the majors in 2016.
In his first six seasons with the Yankees, Judge has earned $17,115,671.
