Earlier in the week, the New York Yankees announced manager Joe Girardi would not return. Various names have been tied to the Yanks' managerial post since -- our own Mike Axisa looked at about a dozen candidates -- but on Saturday a new one surface: Jerry Hairston Jr.

Hairston, 41, has served as a television analyst for SportsNet LA since retiring as an active player. He comes from a baseball family: his brother Scott, father Jerry, grandfather Sam, and uncle Johnny are among those to suit up for big-league duty.

Hairston played in parts of 16 big-league seasons, during which he hit .257/.324/.368. His 45-game stint in pinstripes saw him hit .237/.352/.382 with two home runs.
