The New York Yankees are parting ways with a veteran assistant coach following a 2019 season that ended with a loss to the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series.

Multiple reports have confirmed that the Yankees are firing pitching coach Larry Rothschild, who has been with the franchise since 2011.

ESPN's Buster Olney first reported that Rothschild, 65, could be out.

Joel Sherman has confirmed that the Yankees will be moving on from the veteran pitching coach. Rothschild was previously with the Chicago Cubs from 2002-10. He's also worked for the Marlins, Braves and Reds. Rothschild served as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays manager from 1998-2001.

Sherman added in his report that it's possible Rothschild could reunite with former Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who has been hired as the Phillies' manager.
