Like millions of Yankees fans … Derek Jeter tells TMZ Sports he’s super hopeful his old squad is able to keep Aaron Judge in Pinstripes — and re-sign the superstar this offseason.
Jeets didn’t mince words when we got him out in NYC this week … explaining he “of course!” wants the outfielder back at Yankee Stadium for 2023 and beyond.
The problem? It’s unclear if that’ll actually happen.
Judge, of course, is a free agent … and after turning down a monster contract offer from the Yankees before the 2022 season began, some believe he could be looking elsewhere in the coming weeks and months.
Jeter told us he isn’t sure where things stand in the negotiations between Judge and the Yankees — or where else in the MLB the star could end up.
