Giants continuing talks with Judge

The Giants and outfielder Aaron Judge have continued to discuss a long-term contract extension, according to multiple sources.

The two sides have been talking for weeks, and though there’s still no agreement, the belief is that they will eventually come to terms on a deal.

Judge, who turns 28 in April, is entering his fourth season with the Yankees. He’s eligible for salary arbitration for the first time this year, and is set to become a free agent after the 2021 season.

The 6-foot-7, 282-pound Judge has been one of the most productive players in baseball since he made his debut in 2016. He’s a two-time All-Star and was the American League Rookie of the Year in 2017.

Judge has hit .279/.392/.540 with 89 home runs and 246 RBIs in 280 career games. He’s also been a key part of the Yankees’ lineup, hitting in the middle of the order and providing plenty of protection for sluggers like Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez.

The Giants are in the midst of a rebuild, but Judge would be a significant addition to their lineup. He would also help them in their efforts to compete with the Dodgers in the National League West.

So far this offseason, the Giants have been linked to a number of free agent outfielders, including Yasiel Puig, Marcell Ozuna, and A.J. Pollock. But they’ve yet to land any of them.

Judge would be a big get for the Giants, and it seems like they’re doing everything they can to make it happen.
