The latter could become a free agent at the conclusion of the current major league baseball campaign. He reportedly turned down a seven-year, $213.5 million contract extension last April.
"We're not going to discuss this publicly any longer," Cashman said Wednesday, as reported by MLB.com. I'm not saying we're going to stop talking to each other, but rather that we're not going to talk about it publicly. He [Judge] has been great so far. It's no surprise, he's still great."
Heading into today's matchup between the Bronx Bombers and Toronto Blue Jays, Judge had a healthy .290 batting average. He had also hit 10 home runs and produced 31 runs in 107 at-bats.
The Yankees had the best start to the season of any major league baseball team, with a 21-8 record.
