The New York Yankees and Aaron Judge have agreed to a one-year, $19 million contract, according to sources.
The agreement avoided an arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday.
Judge can make an additional $250,000 for MVP and $250,000 for World Series MVP as part of the deal.
Before Opening Day, Judge declined a $213.5 million contract offer from the Yankees that would have locked him up for several years. As things currently stand, Judge will become a free agent after this season.
