The 2022-23 MLB offseason is underway, and one of the biggest questions yet to be answered is how much money Aaron Judge is going to make in free agency.

Judge already rejected a seven-year, $213.5 million offer from the New York Yankees before the season began, then proceeded to belt an AL-record 62 home runs during the regular season. Suffice it to say, his price tag is considerably higher now than it was a few months ago.

How much higher? MLB insider Kiley McDaniel has an idea.

Aaron Judge Contract

According to McDaniel, baseball industry experts believe Judge will receive a contract of nine years and $324 million, which would be $36 million a year.

That's over $100 million more than what New York offered him in the spring, and for good reason. Judge is coming off a historic season that will likely net him AL MVP honors and now has multiple 50-homer seasons under his belt, making him one of the greatest sluggers ever. And unlikely many mashers, he runs the bases well and isn't a liability in the field.

The Yankees already have a nine-year, $324 million contract on the books in Gerrit Cole. If they want to keep Judge, they might need to add another one.
