The New York Yankees are on the prowl for a manager after cutting ties with Joe Girardi following the 2017 season. So while names aplenty — including former Yankees Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran — have been rumored to take the job, at least one coaching position won’t need a makeover. Longtime Yankees general manager and senior vice president Brian Cashman may have let the cat out of the bag on Friday, confirming to reporters that pitching coach Larry Rothschild will be back for the 2018 season. Other reports in mid-November hinted that the tenured pitching coach would be back in the Bronx despite the exit of Girardi, who was fired from his post after the 2017 postseason. Rothschild just completed his seventh season with the Yankees. New York’s pitching staff finished above average in a host of pitching statistics, including team ERA (No. 5), WHIP (No. 3), strikeouts (No. 4) and quality starts (No. 10).
