Aaron Judge is reportedly staying with the New York Yankees.
The reigning American League MVP has agreed to a nine-year, $360 million contract, sources with knowledge of the deal confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday (December 7).
Judge, 30, gave the Yankees a deadline to reach an extension prior to the 2022 season, which saw him hit an American League record 62 home runs and league-leading 131 RBIs, as well as hit for a .311 average, prior to hitting free agency the following offseason.
The California native's reported decision comes hours after reports that the San Francisco Giants exceeding $300 million.
"Aaron Judge flew into San Diego at the last minute to decide among three teams: the New York Yankees, the San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres," ESPN's Jeff Passan reports. "The Yankees bumped their offer to nine years and $360 million, and in the end, Judge decided he wanted to remain a Yankee."
Judge's decision to rejoin the Yankees was first reported by MLB Network and terms of the deal were initially reported by the Athletic.
The 30-year-old slugger was named the American League MVP last month after receiving 28 of 30 first-place votes for a total score of 410 voting points, defeating 2021 AL MVP Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels -- who received two first-place votes and 280 points -- and Houston Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez, who had 232 points.
