All of the Yankees’ arbitration eligible players except Aaron Judge has settled on a contract for 2022 (Jon Heyman). The two sides are $4 million apart, with Judge coming in at $21 million and the Yankees at $17 million. While this does set the stage for a hearing, it’s also not a foregone conclusion that this gets to that point. Judge could agree to a new deal for 2022, or even a much bandied about extension, prior to the hearing. Now, if this case does get heard, there’s no in between: it’ll either be $17 million or $21 million for 2022.
