Philadelphia Phillies. The hope is that Blake’s youth and more analytic-based approach will help jolt a Yankees pitching staff that struggled with consistency and finished middle of the pack during the 2019 season.’ data-reactid=”31″>The Yankees parted ways with 65-year-old Larry Rothschild after nine seasons as pitching coach on Oct. 28. The respected Rothschild is rumored to be a candidate for the same position with the Philadelphia Phillies. The hope is that Blake’s youth and more analytic-based approach will help jolt a Yankees pitching staff that struggled with consistency and finished middle of the pack during the 2019 season.

Some have said the Yankees should aggressively look to add pitching in free agency. While this hiring doesn’t necessarily eliminate that possibility, it does point to New York being more focused on building and developing pitching from within.

New York has no shortage of talent to work with in the major leagues and in the minors. Now all eyes will be on Blake as he attempts to modernize the system and maximize New York’s talents.
