Ever since the 2022 season of Major League Baseball concluded, the star slugger who had a record-breaking season with 62 home runs has been all over the news. Judge has been the talk of the town ever since he surprised everyone by declining the Yankees’ 235 million deal to explore his options in free agency.

The Yankees fans are taking a sigh of relief and hoping to get back Judge after high-ranking Yankees officials like Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner revealed that they are in talks with the baseman. Without giving any details, Cashman also revealed that he had presented a revised and more lucrative offer to Aaron Judge. After that, Judge’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show was a series of good omens for the Bombers fans.
However, last week news came that Judge is in his home state California to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family. And an MLB insider broke the news that it was not all Judge was doing.
