While the Giants and Dodgers continue to battle it out for a chance of signing Aaron Judge, the Yankees still remain ahead of the two teams to retain Judge. This of course comes as no surprise with Judge being open to staying home.
If the Yankees can offer Judge the right price, there’s little indication of why he’d end up leaving despite knowing the value he will command until he is signed. While the Yankees remain all in to bring Judge back, the Dodgers have other priorities to fill as well (via Jon Heyman, New York Post).
It remains to be seen if Trea Turner will be coming back to the team which creates another need for the Dodgers. While the team looks at Judge, they also look at help with other top shortstops and possible pitchers in the market.
There is a lot to consider as the team cleared over $100 million in the books. Are the Dodgers willing to pay a max amount of money for Judge or will they look to a more even distribute of money to fill all positions of need evenly?
