Brian Cashman Gets 3-Year Extension with Yankees

10 Oct

The New York Yankees are sticking with Brian Cashman. Cashman has certainly had his shortcomings in recent years. His Yankee teams have missed the playoffs each of the past two seasons, and he’s consistently been unable to replenish the farm system.

Still, the Yankees decided to hand Brian Cashman a 3-year contract extension. His previous deal was set to expire at the end of the month. Terms of the deal have not been released. Cashman has been the GM of the Yankees since 1998.

This offseason is a crucial one for the future of the Yankees. It is up to Cashman to find a replacement for Derek Jeter, and revamp the starting rotation.

Max Scherzer and Jon Lester are the big-time free agents, and the only pitcher the Yankees currently have slated in next year’s rotation is Michael Pineda.

CC Sabathia is a major question mark, Hiroki Kuroda and Brandon McCarthy are free agents, Masahiro Tanaka may undergo Tommy John surgery, and David Phelps is no sure thing. Then there’s the whole Alex Rodriguez situation Cashman will have to deal with. That should be fun.
