Aaron Judge is the top free agent on the market. No surprise after he hit an AL record 62 home runs in 2022. But he’ll most likely get the largest contract this offseason, and that just may come from one of the Dodgers’ NL West rivals.
The Giants have been pegged as a top landing spot for Judge, and a team that’ll make the biggest push to sign him. This week, they’ll get their chance at a pitch.

MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reported that Judge is currently in San Francisco, where he’ll meet with the team to discuss a potential deal.
A deal most likely won’t get done this week, but they’re getting the opportunity to give him a true pitch on why he should join their team. For Dodger fans who don’t want Judge in the division, this is definitely something to monitor. We know the Giants will offer him a ton of money, so if he likes it in the Bay, they could be a real threat to sign him.
Other rumors linked Judge to the Dodgers almost immediately following the club’s early exit from the postseason. Also, the incumbent team, the New York Yankees, will be in the mix on the All-Star slugger right up until he makes his final decision.
The winter meetings start on December 4th in San Diego and things are sure to get wild on the MLB hot stove.
