From the Daily News:
The reshaping of the Yankees’ coaching staff continued yesterday as the Bombers informed Neil Allen that he no longer will be the bullpen coach.
Reached at home, GM Brian Cashman confirmed the move and said Allen had been offered a new position within the organization that is not on the major-league level.
Former Phillies manager Larry Bowa will be the Yanks’ new third-base coach, former third-base coach Luis Sojo has been moved – likely to a minor-league managerial spot – and first-base coach Roy White has been let go.
Lee Mazzilli is expected to become the new bench coach, replacing Joe Girardi, the new manager of the Marlins, while hitting coach Don Mattingly will remain in his role.
The reshuffling is part of the Yanks’ stated commitment to giving Torre and Cashman more authority, in hopes that will quell the internal bickering between the New York and Tampa offices.
Why do I have a strange feeling that Tino Martinez will be the new 1B coach?
