The Yankees come out of the All-Star break as baseball’s best

Before the start of this baseball season, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge turned down a seven-year contract extension offer from the team for an estimated $30.5 million per year. Judge, who was selected by the Yankees with the 32nd overall pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft out of Fresno State and made his MLB debut in August of 2016, agreed to a salary increase to $21 million in June the day he and the franchise were scheduled for an arbitration hearing.
