After Judge spoke, Yankees manager Aaron Boone was asked for reaction during his post-game interview.

As the Orioles prepared to face the St. Louis Cardinals March 15, Machado signed autographs for the fans at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium and heard good-natured comments about New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge trying to recruit him. "He gave me a refresher that Major League Baseball is sensitive to that kind of stuff, and that's about it", Judge said.

Per Randy Miller of NJ Advanced Media, Judge said he told Machado how he would look wearing a Yankees uniform prior to Wednesday's spring training game between the two teams.

"It was all new to me", Judge said.

"I don't have any worries with Aaron Judge, and in general nearly all of our people", Cashman said. They communicated to us that Mr. Judge's off the cuff comments were not appropriate and not authorized by the club. But those weren't questions Judge was thinking of, as he made his pitch to Machado, hopeful they'll both wear Yankee pinstripes together for a long time.

Judge said the phone call from Cashman lasted about 30 seconds and the GM told him: "Here's a reminder that you can't do this and have a good night, and I said all right, see you tomorrow".

Major League Baseball didn't appreciate Judge potentially tampering with Machado, who will be a free agent this upcoming offseason.

"Asked me to just politely talk with Aaron and remind him about the optics of that type of dialogue", Cashman said. "Learn something new every day". In Triple A, in a (once again) injury riddled season, Austin played in 52 games. Austin has played pretty well this spring with three of his five hits being home-runs. New York's current shortstop, Gregorius, is eligible to be a free agent after the 2019 season.

Machado-to-the-Yankees trade rumors swirled during the offseason.

"He's one heck of a player, and he's been doing it for quite a few years at the best level", Judge said Wednesday. "He's one of the best - if not the best - defensive third basemen in the game, and now he's probably going to be one of the best defensive shortstops". With what he brings on the offensive side of it, he's the complete package.

In a statement provided to The New York Daily News, the league office indicated it instructed Yankees management to impress upon Judge the inappropriate nature of his comments.

"Also he's going to be a happy man when it comes to free agency wherever he wants to go".
