Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Yankees will hire Josh Bard as bench coach.
The thought was that maybe the Yankees would hire an experienced hand alongside first-time manager Aaron Boone, but the 39-year-old is only a few years removed from wrapping up his playing career. He's spent the last two seasons as the Dodgers bullpen coach. Prior to that, he was working as a pro scout and special assistant in the front office. Bard previously played with Boone in Cleveland. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the club will also hire Phil Nevin as third base coach and bring back Mike Harkey as bullpen coach. Mon, Dec 11, 2017 08:06:00 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the Yankees are close to finalizing a five-year, $25 million extension for general manager Brian Cashman.

The deal hasn't been finalized, but a source tells Nightengale that it's all but done at this point. It's a substantial raise from the three-year, $9 million contract he signed in 2014. The 50-year-old Cashman has been with the Yankees since 1998, and the club has won three world championships under his watch. The club is coming off a surprising 91 win season, and came one game away from playing the Dodgers in the 2017 World Series.

Boone will pursue a broadcasting career with ESPN's "Baseball Tonight." The 36-year-old will finish with a .263/.326/.425 career batting line, 126 home runs and 555 RBI. He played 12 major league seasons.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, 36-year-old infielder Aaron Boone is likely to announce his retirement this winter.

Boone made a brave return just five months after open-heart surgery this season, but isn't much of a baseball player at this point in his career. He batted just .154 in 26 at-bats near the end of '09 while navigating the Astros' farm system and didn't manage a hit in 13 at-bats once promoted to the major league level. As it stands, he's a .263/.326/.425 career hitter with 126 home runs and 555 RBI over 12 seasons.

The Astros confirmed Friday that Aaron Boone (open-heart surgery) will return to the club on September 1.

Boone has proven his health with an extended rehab assignment and is raring to get back to the bigs. He'll get his chance Tuesday. "Not that I didn't have an appreciation of it before," said the veteran, "but now I have a real appreciation for what it's like to play at the elite Major League level." He'll be a platoon player and isn't likely to hold much fantasy value.

Aaron Boone (open-heart surgery) finished 0-for-2 in his first rehab game Monday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Boone plans to spend the next 10 days at the Double-A level. He'll then head to Triple-A Round Rock for about a week and rejoin the Astros in Arizona on the first of September. Of course, that schedule is contingent on him avoiding any setbacks.

The Astros will treat any hint of a setback with major caution, so his plan may derailed here and there.
