New York Yankees broadcaster Carlos Beltran, who is making his YES Network debut this year, hinted that Aaron Judge may have already agreed to a new contract extension to keep him with the Yankees long term.

He corrected his comments later, but the baseball world is already speculating: Did the judge put pen to paper on a new contract to stay in New York?

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, instead of calming speculation and rumblings, left the door open for a possible extension with the star right fielder.

“Brian Cashman said he hadn’t heard Carlos Beltran’s comments on YES. When asked if Aaron Judge had agreed to an extension, Cashman said he wouldn’t comment. Cashman wouldn’t say neither if the Yankees made an offer,” MLB.com editor Bryan Hoch tweeted Monday.

Lots of questions, no real answers.

The Yankees’ most important long-term play could be about to be extended

It’s possible the Yankees and Judge have already agreed, but there may be details to finalize before they’re ready to make the official announcement.

The fact that Beltran has talked about a possible long-term stay is telling enough, though.

We won’t know for sure until Cashman or the organization makes an official announcement.

The judge enters the final season of salary arbitration.

He’s asked for $21 million and the Yankees are offering $17 million, and if they don’t agree on a contract extension soon, or even his 2022 salary, they’ll go to arbitration.

The 30-year-old future outfielder hit .287 in 2021, with 89 runs scored, 39 homers, 98 RBI and a solid .917 OPS.

He is a candidate to be the next Yankees captain if extended and remains, arguably, the best player on the Yankees roster.
