It was a nice compromise with the Yankees for this year’s salary, however, Judge isn’t confident this week’s events change his outlook for the 2023 season and beyond.
“No,” Judge replied when asked if avoiding arbitration gives him more confidence that a long-term deal can get done. “We got this one done and I was happy about that.”
Judge did reveal that he’s happy about clearing this hurdle.
“It’s a business. They’ve got the things they’re doing on their side running numbers and stuff like that,” he told reporters, via NJ.com. “We’re doing the same thing. I’m just thankful to get past it, get it done and go back to focusing on winning some games here.”
At this point in the year, Judge is batting .299 with 27 home runs and 53 RBIs.
