A couple of big candidates appear to be in the mix for free-agent outfielder Aaron Judge.

The New York Yankees have made a new offer to Judge, general manager Brian Cashman confirmed on Friday, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. The 30-year-old turned down a seven-year, $213.5-million extension from the Yankees before Opening Day.

"It's in real-time, so we're on the clock," Cashman said. "We're certainly not going to mess around. We've made another offer since spring training."

Judge recently had a positive face-to-face meeting with Yankees managing partner Hal Steinbrenner to discuss his future with the Bronx Bombers, according to Cashman.

The Los Angeles Dodgers could also become serious players in the offseason sweepstakes for Judge, sources told MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

The Dodgers have room in their outfield mix after non-tendering Cody Bellinger on Friday, plus they also have plenty of financial space to add Judge if they desire.

Judge is a free agent for the first time following a historic 2022 campaign that saw him win American League MVP after hitting 62 home runs and 131 RBIs.
