The New York Yankees and New York Mets will have to pay up in a major way this winter to keep homegrown superstars Aaron Judge and Jacob deGrom. One MLB insider recently gave some insight on what the final bill might be for the impending free agents.

The Yankees and Mets have been two of the best teams in baseball in 2022. While both have struggled a bit lately, they are still viewed as strong contenders to reach the World Series in late October. Two players that will factor into their chances to bring a championship back to New York this year are Aaron Judge and Jacob DeGrom. Two men that are set to bank big bucks as free agents this winter.

When it comes to Judge, he couldn’t have hit the open market at a better time. After passing on a contract extension offer below his market value in the spring, the 30-year-old is having the best year of his career as he closes in on surpassing the legendary organization’s single-season home run record of 60, and is a favorite to win the American League MVP award. He has given the Yankees many reasons to regret not offering him a better contract months ago because they will have to give him a historic deal to keep him in the Bronx after this season.
