Yankees close to deal with Larry Rothschild

Rothschild 2

During Brian Cashman’s press conference a couple of weeks ago, he made it clear that if Joe Girardi returned to the Yankees then he would like to have the coaching staff ¬†return as well. Now that the Yankees have their manager through 2017, they are now closing in on a deal with Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild.

A source told the New York Daily News that the contract was not finalized as of yet, but the two sides have agreed to terms.

With Rothschild as the pitching coach, the Yankees ranked eighth in the American League with a 3.94 ERA this past season. The Yankees posted a 3.84 ERA and a 3.73 ERA in Rothschild’s first two seasons with the team.

    Not a good new. They are much better pitching coaches available.

    Only the pitchers really know if he's good at his job. Team pitching stats do not always reflect how any coach is doing. How far does his influence extend in the organization? Does he have any say as to how the minor league pitchers are handled? Does he have any input into trades or free agents? There are too many questions without answers to assess him fairly.
