The brotherly bond that Yankees\’ Anthony Rizzo and Aaron Judge have developed among themselves is not hidden from anyone. When the Bombers signed Rizzo from free agency, he wanted his team teammate Judge to also return to the bullpen. Luckily, Rizzo got his wish fulfilled last week when the Yankees and Aaron Judge signed an agreement for nine years. As a result, recently, Rizzo has expressed his happiness about Judge coming back home with some kind words for the slugger.
Anthony Rizzo Praise Dearest Teammate Aaron Judge For Resigning With The Yankees!
Anthony Rizzo on Aaron Judge:— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) December 6, 2022
“Whatever he gets is going to be astronomical, and he deserves it. He bet on himself on the biggest stage, in the biggest market and did it with ease. He should be rewarded as the highest-paid player in the game. He’s the new gold standard.”
There is no doubt about the fact that Aaron Judge is well-loved and adored not only by the Yankees fanbase but also by his teammates. Looks like Judge and his other Yankees teammates have a good relationship and respect for one another. Prior to his uncertain MLB free agency season, the outfielder said that his teammates helped the Yankees to secure 99 wins in 2022. Not only that, but the people continued to bring forth the best in him. Apparently, Anthony Rizzo is thrilled that Judge will stay with the New York Yankees. Regarding the AL Home Run King Judge, the All-Star had nothing but praise to offer.
Recently, the Yankees\’ first baseman Anthony Rizzo has praised Aaron Judge as someone he could always count on. In a recent conversation, while commending Judge, Rizzo reckoned that \”He\’ll bail you out of jail at 4 in the morning if you call him.\”
The massive respect and admiration that Aaron Judge commands in the team are unparalleled. All the Yankees players not only have respect not only for Judge as a player but as a human being as well. As a result, there is a growing sentiment among the team that Judge should be the next captain of the side. New York Yankees have not had a captain ever since the legendary Derek Jetter retired in 2014. And because the Yankees have signed Judge for nine long years. Making him the team captain seems like the logical option.
In the year 2017, the slugger was unanimously named American League Rookie of the Year in 2017. He also finished in second place for AL\’s Most Valuable Player. Aaron Judge set the AL record in 2022 with 62 home runs, breaking the previous mark of 55. He won the American League Most Valuable Player Award, breaking Roger Maris\’ 61-year-old record.
Judge Named Athlete Of The Year!
The most recent honor given to Judge is a severe warning for the Yankees. The slugger was awarded the Time Athlete of the Year last Tuesday after having a phenomenal season of the Yankees. In Anthony Volpe, Oswald Peraza, and Jasson Dominguez, the Yankees have a ton of offensive talent emerging via their prospect system. The team\’s biggest star, though, is unquestionably Aaron Judge.
