Yankees Top Brass Have Reportedly Made Up Their Mind On Aaron Boone’s Future As Manager!

Aaron Boone took over as the New York Yankees’ manager in 2018 without any managerial or coaching background. While his appointment was met with criticism, the former baseball player lived up to the expectations. Under his reign, the Yanks made it to the postseason each year. However, the trophy rack still has an empty cabinet for the World Series ring.

The failure to bring a World Series title back home has been the only thing going against Aaron Boone all this while. Despite that, the top brass consisting of owner Hal Steinbrenner and general manager Brian Cashman has always had his back. Meanwhile, as the Yankees remain on the brim of a playoff elimination for the first time in seven years, Boone’s job has seemingly come under threat.

New York Yankees hasn’t missed the postseason since Aaron Boone took up the role of manager. However, the 2023 season brought its share of challenges for Boone and the Yanks. Injuries to key players, unexpected slumps, and fierce competition in their division tested the team’s core strength. Throughout the ups and downs, Boone remained a steady presence, making critical decisions and keeping the team focused on their ultimate goal of reaching the playoffs. However, ever since the team sacked hitting coach Dillon Lawson over the All-Star break, Boone has been on the edge of the sword. His future as the manager of the Bronx Bombers has seemingly come under threat.

Amid these uncertainties, Andy Martino of SNY has made a bold statement. He claimed that despite all the lows this season, Aaron Boone’s job with the Yankees is secure. He further added that Brian Cashman still considers Boone, an excellent manager and is not blaming him for the team’s fall this season. Marinto went on to say that even if the Bombers fail to make it to the postseason, Aaron Boone isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Well, the Yankees’ top brass’ alleged assessment isn’t entirely wrong. The team has been backed down by a lot of things that weren’t in their control, especially the injuries. Moreover, the team has missed the services of key players for a substantial amount of time. Hence, if the Yanks fail to miss playoffs this season, it would be a collective failure rather than a single personnel’s wrongdoings.

Amid an underwhelming season, the New York Yankees are shuffling the coaching staff. After replacing the hitting coach, the team has added a familiar face in the clubhouse. A former Yankee All-Star, Andy Pettitte, has been appointed as a special advisor to manager Aaron Boone. Andy, a former pitcher, offered his services to New York for 15 years. In those 15 years, he won five World Series titles before calling it quits in 2013.

Meanwhile, as the Yankees sit at a low point in the East division with a record of 53-47, Andy Pettitte’s homecoming couldn’t come at a better time. His job will be to assist Aaron Boone and Sean Casey to revive the Yanks’ season and ensure a playoff spot. Andy will work with the pitchers to bring out the best of them. Hopefully, the move works out in the favor of the club.
