Yankees name Gary Tuck bullpen coach, announce three other hires


The Yankees have officially announcing the hiring of Gary Tuck (bullpen coach), Matthew Krause (strength and conditioning coordinator), Trey Hillman (special assistant, major and minor league operations), and Mike Quade (roving outfield and baserunning instructor). The moves have been in the works for weeks. Tuck replaces Mike Harkey, who left to become the Diamondbacks’ pitching coach a few weeks ago. Here’s the press release if you’re looking for background info on all four new hires.

    Glad Hillman’s back. Not a fan of Krause. Ambivalent about the rest.

      Big scouter of Strength and Conditioning Coordinators, are you?

    If they don’t get dealt before ST, I love that Murphy and Romine get to work with Gary Tuck who’ll only help make them better catchers. Hey, having McCann & Cervelli go through “camp Tuck” won’t hurt them either.
