Report: Aaron Judge returns to Yankees on nine-year, $360 million contract

The American League Home Run King is staying in the Bronx.

Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees have agreed to a massive nine-year, $360 million contract, pending a physical, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

The All-Star outfielder turned down several other offers, including a last-minute one from the San Diego Padres, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Judge’s contract makes him the highest-paid position player in Major League Baseball history in terms of average annual value ($40 million).

Since making his MLB debut with the Yankees in 2016, Judge has hit .284/.394/.583 with 220 home runs in 729 games.

New York will now shift their focus to other free agents, including outfielders Andrew Benintendi and Masataka Yoshida, as well as starting pitcher Carlos Rodon.
