About 20 minutes ago, the Yankees announced that Larry Rothschild, former pitching coach for the Chicago Cubs, will be filling the same position for the Yankees for the next 3 years. Rothschild will take the place of Dave Eiland, who was not rehired after a bumpy 2010 season. Unlike Eiland, Rothschild brings significant experience as a major league pitching coach to the table, having held the position in Chicago since 2002. He has also worked with the Braves and Marlins in the past, as well as managing the Rays. I’m typing from some mediocre wifi right now so more in-depth analysis will have to wait, but I can’t say that I’m surprised that the Yankees went for an experienced, well-respected major league coach after the Dave Eiland experience did not work out. This announcement came out of left field, but ninja-like moves such as this one have become the norm for Brian Cashman.
