Owner Wants Aaron Judge With Yankees For 'The Rest Of His Life'

New York — Yankees Managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner wants to leave no doubt about where he stands aaron judgeThe future in pinstripes.

“I’ve made it very clear that I want him to be a Yankee for the rest of his life,” Steinbrenner said Tuesday at MLB owners’ meetings in New York. “No doubt about it. He knows it.”

The sentiment marked the latest in a string of public comments from Steinbrenner indicating the team’s strong interest in bringing Judge back on a long-term contract. In an interview with Yes Network, Steinbrenner named Judge as team captain, saying that if the slugger returns “is something we would consider.”

Judge has said in the past that his priority is to stay with the Yankees, and Steinbrenner believes that is still the case.

“I believe [Judge] wants to be a Yankee,” said Steinbrenner. “I think we have a good thing going here.”

Judge turned down an offer from the Yankees before Opening Day of this season that would have paid him $213.5 million from 2023 to 2029. The MVP earned the respect — and cemented his place as one of the top free agents on the market.

“The rest is up to him and his family and where they want to go from here,” Steinbrenner said. “But we’re going to do what we can, I assure you.”

While Judge would likely receive one of the largest free-agent contracts ever, Steinbrenner said it would not prevent the Yankees from spending more money in free agency.

“We have a lot of potential to do other things as well,” Steinbrenner said.
