NEW YORK (AP) — Slugging Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees avoided arbitration when they agreed to a one-year contract worth $10,175,000.

Judge had his third straight injury-interrupted season since winning the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year award, hitting .257 with nine homers and 22 RBIs in 101 at-bats and 28 games.

After homering in his first five games, he strained his right calf and played just once between Aug. 11 and Sept. 16.
