New York Yankees general manager confirmed that the team was unable to agree to a long-term contract extension with Aaron Judge.
GM Brian Cashman stated that the final offer to Judge’s camp was for seven years worth $213.5 million.
The deal would have been on top of his 2022 salary of $17 million that the two sides avoided arbitration with this season.
Judge made 36 plate appearances this Spring Training slashing a monster .406/.472/.875 to go along with four home runs and seven RBI.
The soon to be 30-year-old will now wait until the offseason to discuss a long-term extension with the Yankees.
