Carlos Mendoza and Reggie Willits are under consideration to join new manager Aaron Boone’s coaching staff. Mendoza, 38, recently completed his fifth year as the Yankees’ minor league infield field coordinator and could be Joe Espada’s replacement as the third-base coach. The former Yankees minor leaguer has worked with infielders Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar and Thairo Estrada and is highly thought of within the organization. Espada left the Yankees following the postseason to join the Astros as the World Series winners’ bench coach. Willits, 36, played six seasons for the Angels and has been the Yankees’ minor league outfield/base-running coordinator for the past three seasons.
