Yanks reach 3-year deal with Kevin Long
Via George King of the NY Post:
According to multiple sources, Kevin Long and the Yankees have agreed to a three-year deal that runs concurrent with the pact manager Joe Girardi recently signed.
Long, the hitting coach whose three-year deal worth about $1.2 million expired yesterday, will receive a raise. Next season will be Long’s sixth handling Yankees hitters.
Good to have Long wrapped up, of course. It’s no secret how effective he has been (see Robinson Cano).
King also writes that bullpen coach Mike Harkey is a “strong candidate” to replace Dave Eiland as the team’s pitching coach. Single-A Staten Island manager Josh Paul would then take over Harkey’s previous role as bullpen coach.
