There is a possibility that Aaron Judge has played his final game with the New York Yankees. After being swept by the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series on Sunday, the Yankees’ season came to an end and they were eliminated from contention.

After the conclusion of the World Series, Aaron Judge, who is the favorite to win American League’s Most Valuable Player, is set to become a free agent. Aaron Judge has claimed that he hasn’t made up his mind on a decision about his future yet.

Talking about it, Aaron Judge said, “I haven’t even thought about the next step yet. We got time to figure it out. I’ve never been in this spot before.” Talking about the possibility to stay with the Yankees, the slugger said, “I’ve been clear about that since I first wore the pinstripes, But we couldn’t get something done before spring training. And I’m a free agent, and we’ll see what happens.”

He added, “Getting a chance to wear the pinstripes and play right field at Yankee Stadium, that’s an incredible honor, I definitely didn’t take it for granted at any point. I always checked myself pregame when I’d say a little prayer, I’d kind of look around the stadium and kind of pinch myself.”

There are many teams that are interested in acquiring the services of Judge once the free agency season starts, and the Yankees will be required to spend big if they want to keep hold of their superstar.
