New York Post | Jake Nisse: You know who had a good day yesterday? Aaron Judge. The Yankees’ right fielder agreed to a one-year, $8.5 million contract to avoid arbitration. This marks the first major payday for the 27-year-old since his debut in 2016. The Bombers signed all nine of their arbitration-eligible players, as Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News notes. Stay tuned, as Tom will break down the moves a little later on today. | Joe Giglio: Do the Yankees have another splash in their system? Giglio thinks the club should use their remaining financial and prospect firepower to land Nolan Arenado from the Colorado Rockies. The Yankees reportedly love Arenado, and Colorado appears willing to move him for financial reasons. This seems more like a pipe dream than anything, though.

Sports Illustrated | Max Goodman: Finally, you can file this under: It’s almost time for baseball. The Yankees released their game times for the 2020 season, including Opening Day. The Bombers kick off the new season on March 26 at 3:05 PM in Baltimore. Soon, friends, soon.
