The Yankees have a new manager.
Aaron Boone is back with the New York Yankees. After New York decided to move on from former manager Joe Girardi, Boone has been tabbed as the 35th Yankees manager.
Boone briefly played for the Yankees in 2003 when he was acquired in late July. The third baseman played 54 games for New York before being replaced by Alex Rodriguez.
New York Daily News first reported the hire, followed by ESPN’s Buster Olney.
Aaron Boone is the Yankees' pick as the next manager. Not yet announced by the team.
