The New York Yankees fired pitching coach Larry Rothschild on Monday. Rothschild had held the job since 2011, when he replaced Dave Eiland.
“I want to personally thank Larry for his near decade of commitment to this organization. Larry cares deeply about his craft and the pitchers under his tutelage, and he played a significant role in our successes over the past nine seasons. There’s a reason why Larry has had the type of distinguished baseball career he’s had, and it starts with experience and dedication that is difficult to emulate,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said in a statement.
The 2019 Yankees finished 103-59 for a .636 winning percentage, and their 4.31 team ERA ranked sixth in the AL.
The 2018 team finished 100-62 but with a 3.78 ERA.
One place where Rothschild May emerge is Philadelphia where Joe Girardi was recently hired as manager.
