MLB RUMORS: Live updates with Aaron Judge re-signing with the Yankees, plus more winter meetings

The 2022 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings produced the biggest offseason news. Aaron Judge re-signed with the Yankees on Wednesday to a historic nine-year contract that will pay him $40 million annually (the highest average annual value ever for a position player). Judge returned to New York despite the earnest efforts of the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres to sign the record-setting player.

Coming off a 62-home run season, Judge was the top prize in the free agent market, but plenty of other All-Stars are still available, including Carlos Correa, Xander Bogaerts, and Carlos Rodón. More free dominoes may fall on Wednesday as the Winter Meetings wrap up in San Diego.

The MLB offseason is now a month old, and while the first few weeks were slow, things have picked up in recent days with Jacob DeGrom (Rangers), Justin Verlander (Mets), Trea Turner (Phillies), Wilson Contreras (Cardinals) Cody Bellinger (Cubs) all landing new teams . Here are the notable moves so far from the Winter Meetings.
