Yankees, Aaron Judge will not get a contract extension until the 2022 MLB season
Aaron Judge and the Yankees had not reached an agreement to renew the contract by the deadline on the first day, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman confirmed on Friday.

Brian Cashman says the Yankees’ final offer to Aaron Judge was a 7-year extension at $30.5m/y + $17m for this season. In total, Cashman says it was an 8-year offer.

The 29-year-old judge refused the deal and decided to take his chances on the market. A $30.5 million annual salary is a lot to leave on the table, though it`s possible Judge surpasses that figure with a strong season.

Cashman expressed optimism that the Yankees and judges could get together for overtime before the off-season.

It depends on whether the judge wants to participate in the negotiations during play.

In addition to the long-term deal, the judge and the Yankees are even in conflict regarding the judge’s 2022 salary.

The two sides were unable to reach an agreement during the off-season and the issue will be decided by the arbitrator in June.

Cashman reiterated that this was a message to Yankees fans. Yankees fans may be disappointed that they didn’t agree to extend their contract with one of the game’s most popular players.

Earlier that day, Aaron Boone said he was confident that whatever happened to the judge’s contract would not affect the scene, as the judge reiterated.
