Angels, Yankees reportedly discussed Aaron Judge trade in offseason

  Angels, Yankees reportedly discussed Aaron Judge trade in offseason The Angels had trade talks with the Yankees about Aaron Judge this winter, ESPN.com’s Buster Olney reports, but it sounds as if the discussions were little more than due diligence.  “It was the lightest of flirtations,” as Olney put it, “and perhaps a door-opener for other names.”  No details about the specific nature of the talks were mentioned, but it’s safe to assume the Angels explored some bigger outfield names like Judge before eventually landing Dexter Fowler in a salary dump of a trade from the Cardinals.

NEW YORK – Giancarlo Stanton ’ s blistering, ninth-inning single was the game winner Sunday afternoon, allowing the Yankees a second straight walk - off victory. Washington Nationals closer Brad Hand imploded again at Yankee Stadium, yielding two walks before Stanton ’ s hot grounder to left scored Tyler Wade from third, completing a 3-2 win . That surface has been problematic for Judge in the recent past. Expanding the zone. Immediately following his April 28-29 break from the lineup, Judge went 5-for-9 in his next two games with two homers and eight RBI.

The Yankees started their rally against Brad Hand (2-1) when Tyler Wade and pinch hitter Aaron Judge drew walks. DJ LeMahieu beat out a double-play grounder to move Wade to third and Stanton won it by sharply hitting a single into left field between shortstop Trea Turner and third baseman Starlin Castro as the infield was in for Washington.
