Aaron Judge re-signed with the Yankees on Wednesday on a historic nine-year contract that will pay him $40 million per year (the highest average annual value ever for a position player).

Judge, coming off a 62-home run season, was the top prize on the free agent market, but plenty of other All-Stars are still available, including Carlos Correa, Xander Bogaerts and Carlos Rodón.

More free agent dominoes could fall Wednesday as the Winter Meetings wrap up in San Diego.

San Francisco will now pivot to other bats (Carlos Correa?) and the Yankees will begin filling out their roster around the AL MVP.

And the team appears reluctant to pursue Carlos Correa -- the top free agent remaining -- per The Athletic.

The Yankees GM is addressing reporters at the Winter Meetings after Judge's deal, though it is not yet official.

Cashman: Hal Steinbrenner is “putting his money where his mouth is” regarding Aaron Judge signing, which is not yet official (paperwork, physical, all that) #Yankees.

JT Realmuto got a five-year, $115 million deal from the Phillies two years ago.

The Yankees have re-signed Aaron Judge.

The Padres and Giants have also been linked to him in free agency.

Jon Heyman reports the Mets are still interested in a deal with NPB star Kodai Senga after the Quintana deal.

One year and $40 million more than the Yankees.

All-Star closer Kenley Jansen is heading to Boston on a two-year, $32 million deal, per ESPN.

Closer Kenley Jansen and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on a two-year, $32 million contract, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN.

It's a two-year, $26 million deal.

The Giants missed out on Aaron Judge (despite looking like the favorites to land him for about 15 minutes on Tuesday, at least on Twitter).

The logical choice wold be the free agent shortstop market, where Carlos Correa and Xander Bogaerts remain unsigned.

The Giants landed outfielder Mitch Haniger on Tuesday, but their fans will wake up Wednesday seeing Judge back in pinstripes.

The Yankees will likely need more than re-signing Aaron Judge to improve their roster heading into the 2023 season.

Per The Athletic, the Yankees are targeting Carlos Rodón (the top free agent starter left on the market) and outfielders Andrew Benintendi (who the Yankees traded for last year) and Masataka Yoshida (who is joining MLB from Japan's NPB)..

It's a four-year deal worth $68 million, according to ESPN.

The fifth spot could go to a young pitcher (Hayden Wesneski?) or the Cubs could sign another free agent!

Chicago signed Cody Bellinger to a one-year deal earlier Tuesday and they're still in the mix for the top free agent shortstops.

16 free agent, will improve a rotation that is a bit thin behind Kyle Hendricks and Marcus Stroman.

Senga is a true free agent who doesn't require any kind of posting fee.

ESPN says it's a two-year deal worth $15 million.

It looks like a four-year deal (four years and $72 million, according to Jon Heyman on MLB Network).

The Giants have signed a free agent outfielder?

It's not Aaron Judge (yet?), but it is Mitch Haniger on a three-year, $45.3 million deal, per ESPN.

The report specifically mentions that the deal does not affect the Giants' pursuit of Judge at all.

He remains a free agent, but the possibility of the Giants signing him has never felt closer

Yankees for Judge

A recent report saying that it sounded like Judge was going to the Giants was walked back with the reporter apologizing for "jumping the gun." Susan Slusser, a Giants writer, did say there is buzz on Judge to the Giants and that it's possible a decision was reached in the last half hour

Buzz in the lobby is Judge is going to sign with the Giants
