Jim Hendry & Jeff Samardzija Could Be on the Way Out of New York

I won't leave you hanging for long because I know you're probably all a little confused by the title of the post. Jeff Samardzija is not a member of the New York Yankees so how could he possibly be on his way out of New York, right? You are right but it is also worth mentioning that Yankees special assistant and adviser to Brian Cashman and former Cubs front office member Jim Hendry was the man that signed Samardzija to his first Major League deal pulling him away from football and Notre Dame University and Hendry may also be on his way out of New York.

Cashman has already lost one of his top generals this season when his assistant GM Billy Eppler took the general manager position with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Hendry may be the next one on the way out. Hendry recently interviewed with the Philadelphia Phillies about a potential adviser role with the team. Hendry also interviewed with new team president Andy MacPhail for the vacant GM job left open by Ruben Amaro Jr. but the team eventually hired Matt Klentak for that position.

If Hendry leaves does he take the possibility of signing Samardzija with him? At the end of the day, maybe.
