The New York Yankees lost their bench coach in Carlos Mendoza when he crossed boroughs over to Queens. Needing to fill that role, they announced yesterday that they have hired former major leaguer and manager, Brad Ausmus. Having the managerial experience, pairing him with Aaron Boone could work out the way the Yankees hope.


Brad Ausmus began his major league career in 1993 with the San Diego Padres. After spending four years in San Diego, Ausmus had stints with Detroit, Houston, and Los Angeles (NL). In his 18 year career, Ausmus slashed .251/.325/.344 with 80 home runs, compiling a career 16.5 WAR. Ausmus earned three Gold Gloves as well as an all-star appearance.


Bringing managerial experience to his new role with New York (AL), his voice could speak volumes next to manager, Aaron Boone. Ausmus was a manger with the Tigers (4 years) and the Angels (1 year). Ausmus also seen stints of Team Israel's manger in the WBC (2012), Team Israel's assistant (2023), and the Athletics bench coach (2022). Ausmus' long resume could prove wealthy for the Bronx Bombers.
