Yankees sign Larry Rothschlid to three-year contract

Photo of Larry RothschildThe Yankees just announced their new pitching coach. It’s Larry Rothschild, the former pitching coach of the Marlins and Cubs and the first manager of the then-Devil Rays. YES Network tweets Rothschild signed a three-year deal.

Ironically, Rothschild managed Dave Eiland while he coached for the Rays for two full years. Rothschild also coached Joe Girardi in 2002 when he caught 90 games for the Cubs.

So what can Rothschild do for the Yankees? Well, his main task will be to fix A.J. Burnett. But that job may not be possible for just one human to tackle.

More on Rothschild when information becomes available.
