In addition to his historic season, Aaron Judge now owns the awards.

Shohei Ohtani, a two-way superstar for the Los Angeles Angels, lost out to Judge for the title of American League MVP on Thursday night. Ohtani received the honour in 2021. According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, Judge garnered 28 first-place votes while Ohtani only received two.

The award going to Judge is not shocking given that he set an AL record with 62 home runs, 131 RBIs, and a.311 batting average this past season. According to ESPN Stats & Info, he becomes the first New York Yankee to win the prestigious title since Alex Rodriguez did so back in 2007. According to repoter, he also becomes the first outfielder from the team to do so since Mickey Mantle in 1962.

Judge’s business dealings are finished, thus he now faces an unclear future. After an amazing season, Judge, a free agent, is due a sizable payday. The majority of people expect that Judge’s next contract will be in the $300 million bracket after he turned down a seven-year, $213.5 million offer from the Yankees at the beginning of the season.

Judge is the Yankees’ first priority, and they remain the betting favourite to sign the superstar, but there will be other teams interested in him, including the San Francisco Giants.

At least Judge can now bring his AL MVP award to the negotiating table in an effort to secure a more beneficial contract than the one he most likely will.
