Source: Gary Denbo will replace retired Mark Newman as Yankees Sr. VP of Baseball Operations. — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) October 20, 2014
While we wait patiently for the new hitting coach to be named, the Yankees are reportedly set to fill an important front office hole with this move. Denbo was considered a front runner for this position based on his longstanding history as a scout and MiL hitting coordinator. He's been around the organization for a long time, so take that as a good or bad thing depending on how much you wanted to see an outside voice take over for Newman.
Also via Feinsand, the Yankees have let Pat Roessler go as VP of player development. Expect to see a replacement announced for that job soon.
