Pederson uses Instagram to recruit Judge to Giants originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
It appears that the Giants will be pulling out all the stops in recruiting free-agent slugger Aaron Judge.
After the New York Yankees slugger was spotted in San Francisco on Monday night, reportedly with plans to visit the Giants on Tuesday, Joc Pederson took to Instagram in an effort to recruit the American League MVP to the Giants.
"I got 99 problems ... winning ain't one. We're ready when you are @thejudge44" Pederson wrote in reference to Judge's jersey number and the famous Jay-Z song "99 Problems."
Pederson sweetened the post with a photoshop of the slugger in orange and black, a picture that is posted by Giants fans in the replies of nearly every tweet about Judge on Twitter.

After attempting to recruit free agent shortstop Trevor Story to San Francisco one year ago, Pederson is hoping for better luck this time around.
