Ken Rosenthal, a talented reporter for The Athletic, a U.S. sports media outlet, followed suit, tweeting that it was a large contract worth $360 million (¥49.367 billion) over nine years. According to the U.S. media outlet Spotrac, $40 million per year is the highest contract in MLB history for a top-fielder. The total of $360 million is the third highest in MLB history.


Judge hit 62 home runs this season, breaking the A-League record. He was the league’s MVP, beating out Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani. He became a FA in the off-season, and in addition to the Yankees hoping to retain him, the Giants and Dodgers were also reportedly in the fray.
