    Via MLB Trade Rumors -

    Eric Hinske only worked in the Yankees’ scouting department for a month before leaving to become the Cubs’ first base coach, but he helped convince Brian McCann to sign on for five years in New York, Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger writes. Hinske and McCann played together in Atlanta from 2010 through 2013. “[Hinske] was involved. He helped me with Brian McCann,” says Yankees GM Brian Cashman. “So I appreciate Eric Hinske giving Brian McCann a lot of good advice about his experience here with the Yankees. He was a great resource for about 30 days.”

    Of course, Hinske was here when the team was good. McCann may find playing with the Yankees to be a different experience.
