The Yankees avoided arbitration with one of their biggest stars on Friday, agreeing with Aaron Judge to a one-year deal for $10.175 million, a source told MLB.com reporter Mark Feinsand. The team has not commented.

Judge was one of eight Yankees eligible for arbitration, including core stars Gleyber Torres, Luke Voit, Gary Sánchez and Gio Urshela.

Judge appeared to be on an American League MVP Award-worthy track early in the pandemic-shortened season, mashing nine homers before sustaining a right calf injury, then reinjuring it on his first day back in the lineup. Limited to 28 games, Judge batted .257/.336/.554 with 22 RBIs (140 wRC+). Judge’s 2020 salary was $8.5 million.

The Yankees have had only two recent cases advance to arbitration hearings. The most recent was right-hander Dellin Betances, who requested $5 million and was awarded $3 million in February 2017. Prior to Betances, the most recent Yankee to reach arbitration was righty Chien-Ming Wang in 2008.
