The Winter Meetings are fast approaching.
Thus far, there has been little activity in MLB free agency, something baseball fans hope changes next week when the meetings begin.
Of all the free agents on the market, Aaron Judge is the most prized one.
After breaking the single-season home run record in the American League, the slugger has entered free agency for the first time in his career.
The San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees are the top two suitors for the 30-year-old.
According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, the Yankees have put an offer on the table for Judge.
Passan notes that the offer is around eight years and “in the neighborhood of $300 million.”

Yanks Make Offer To Judge
Judge is sure to earn a nice payday with his next contract, but he may want more than what the Yankees have offered him.
The slugger is a Bay Area native, so the Giants cannot be ruled out as free agency starts to heat up.
But for now, the Yankees have an offer ready for Judge.
With him being the top free agent out on the market, more offers may come.
Judge’s 62 home runs have put him in position to earn a record-breaking deal wherever he decides to sign.
The Yankees have made it clear that they intend to keep Judge around.
But the Giants certainly won’t go quietly.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are also an interesting possibility for the AL MVP.
The Yankees still have time to make a better offer if the slugger rejects the current one.
