Via Ken Davidoff, the Yankees do not have an obvious candidate to replace Dave Eiland as pitching coach, and will look both inside and outside the organization to fill the position. Dave Duncan signed a new contract with the Cardinals today, so thankfully we can put an end to that speculation before it even begins. Triple-A pitching coach Scott Aldred and roving pitching coordinator Nardi Contreras are the only in-house replacements I can come up with, but there’s bound to be more.
Meanwhile, Joe Girardi said he doesn’t expect there to be any more changes to his coaching staff even though all of their contracts are up. You’d have to think that hitting coach Kevin Long will get a nice big contract extension after his work in recent years.
