Ladies and gentlemen, the “Bamb-Tino” has returned to the Yankees–but just so we’re clear, not to play baseball.

The Yankees have announced Tino Martinez has joined the Yankees as a minor league instructor. He’ll be at the minor league complex until the end of the week and will occasionally visit minor league teams throughout the season.

Martinez is known for helping the Yankees win four World Series championship and five pennants from 1996 to 2001. He previously was a hitting coach for the Miami Marlins in 2013 but re-signed. Just last season, Martinez was honored with a plaque in Monument Park.

  1. Hopefully he's learned how to control himself around minor leaguers. http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-baseball/2292

    I thought he might have a shot at the hitting coach job. Notoriously tough coach.
