Aaron Judge

The Los Angeles Dodgers already have one of the most star-studded rosters in all of Major League Baseball, but there’s a chance that lineup could get even more loaded over the offseason as the team could potentially make a move to bring in former New York Yankees free agent slugger Aaron Judge.

It would be quite a massive move if the Dodgers could sign Aaron Judge, especially given Los Angeles’ already massive payroll, but MLB insider Mark Feinsand of MLB.com outlined how the move could work.

“Should the Dodgers decide to let the likes of Trea Turner, Justin Turner (club option), Craig Kimbrel and Joey Gallo (among others), leave as free agents, they could have roughly $100 million coming off the payroll, giving them ample space to make a bid for Judge,” Feinsand wrote.

Even if the Dodgers are able to sign Judge, however, they’d then have to determine the best position for him on the field. Judge has played the majority of his MLB career in right field, which is where Dodgers star Mookie Betts currently plays. As a result, Feinsand suggested that Betts could move to second base.

“Betts has been the Dodgers’ everyday right fielder since he joined the team in 2020, but the 30-year-old was drafted as a second baseman and, according to a source, would be open to a move back to the infield at some point during his career,” Feinsand said.

Of course, there’s a chance that Judge simply remains in New York after his record-breaking season. But if he does move to a new team, this could be an option.
