Report: Yankees to hire Kevin TowersBy
Via MLBTR, the Yankees are going to announce the hiring of former Padres’ GM Kevin Towers before spring. It’s unclear what KT’s responsibilities will be, though he’s expressed a desire to get out of the office and back into the field. Chances are they’re bringing him aboard as a consultant, otherwise he’d be forfeiting the money San Diego still owes him.
This is a great, yet completely unsurprising pickup. Brian Cashman and Towers have long had a great relationship, and Towers’ keen eye for pitching is a welcome addition. Welcome to the Boogie Down, KT.
