Cashman puts lid on Aaron Judge contract talk

Despite his red-hot start to the season, Aaron Judge still has not reached a decision with the Yankees regarding his contract. And Yankees general manger Brian Cashman said Wednesday morning he will not talk about whether progress has been made for an extension.

“We’re not going to talk about it now going forward,” Cashman said. “Whether that means we’re not going to talk, I’m not saying that, but we’re not going to talk about it (publicly). But he’s been great. But that’s no surprise, because he is great.”

Judge, 30, is slashing .290/.356/.626 and he’s leading MLB with 10 homers through 28 games. He hit his first career walk-off home run in the Yankees’ win Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.

The slugger turned down an extension offer of $230.5 million for the next eight seasons just hours before the team’s 2022 season opener. New York’s offer was $17 million for the 2022 season plus $30.5 million per season for the next seven years.
