Analyzing every MLB free agent signing: Aaron Judge stays a Yankee, Phillies add Taijuan Walker

Dec 7, 2022

Baseball’s hot stove is firing up. The Winter Meetings are abuzz in San Diego, and MLB teams are making moves, signing free agents and laying the groundwork for the 2023 season.

Let’s break down all the MLB free-agent deals, assessing whether they made sense for the team and the player.

The AL MVP and single-season AL home run king is staying in the Bronx. Coming off his headline-monopolizing, 62-homer contract year, Judge is reportedly re-signing with the Yankees on a nine-year, $360 million deal. The pact will pay him an average of $40 million through his age-39 season. Reports indicate that his choice was between the Yankees, the San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres, who made a late push during the Winter Meetings.
