Cashman: Yankees Want To Bring Back Rothschild

Brian Cashman confirmed this morning that the New York Yankees hope to bring back the Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild who is a free agent after this season. The 59 year old Rothschild signed a three year deal back in 2010 to replace Dave Eiland and has seen the Yankees pitch to a 3.97 ERA with a 3.92 FIP in his three seasons as pitching coach which ranks about in the middle of the pack as far as across the league goes. You would think it would be a lot better having the likes of Hiroki Kuroda, Andy Pettitte, and CC Sabathia on the team but you have to remember they also had AJ Burnett in 2010 so that probably did not help much.

Speculation is that Rothschild is a Girardi loyalists so if manager Joe Girardi comes back then so will Larry and Brian Cashman has said that he wants both of them back. We will finish this with a quote from Cashman during this interview.

"I think he is an excellent pitching coach," meaning Rothschild obviously, "I would like to have him back, I would like to have Joe back. I wouldn't think that Larry would want to work with just any manager, so first and foremost we have to deal with that."
