The New York Yankees have hired Matt Blake as their new pitching coach.

Blake was previously an area scout for the Yankees and a pitching coordinator for the Cleveland Indians. He will be taking the job of Larry Rothschild, who was fired about two weeks ago.

He will look to develop the starting pitching as well as strengthen middle relievers.

This is a developing story and we will know more soon.
