Yankees extend GM Brian Cashman on 4-year deal

New York Yankees, Yankees, Brian Cashman

The New York Yankees haven’t extended superstar slugger Aaron Judge yet, but they have figured out the future at the general manager position, announcing they have extended Brian Cashman on a four-year contract.

Per the Yankees:

The New York Yankees today announced that the club has re-signed Brian Cashman to a four-year contract through the 2026 season to continue serving as Senior Vice President and General Manager.

Many have called for the replacement of Cashman over the past few seasons, given the Yankees’ inability to reach the World Series. Year after year, the Bombers make inefficient signings, and while they’ve struck gold with a few gems, injuries and inconsistencies have plagued the team ever since Cashman joined their ranks.

The Yankees made the safe choice of retaining Brian Cashman:

At 55 years old, Cashman is the longest-serving Yankees GM in the history of the team and is the longest-tenured in Major League Baseball. The Bombers have been to the postseason 21 times in his 25 seasons, winning four World Series titles, but it has been quite some time since their last success.

Right now, Cashman must focus on bringing back the team’s best player and arguably the best player in the game. In addition, the Yankees could use another starting pitcher and require left-field support, with Andrew Benintendi hitting free agency.

Ultimately, the team needs plenty of reinforcements, and Hal Steinbrenner is willing to open up his checkbook to get the job done, but with a flurry of free-agent signings on Monday afternoon, the top options are dwindling.
