Rothschild To Return As Yankees Pitching Coach

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Yankees might not have a manager yet, but they know who their pitching coach will be in 2018.

Larry Rothschild will return to the team next season, WFAN’s Sweeny Murti confirmed.

Rothschild, 63, has been with the Yankees since 2011. With Luis Severino enjoying a breakout season and 37-year-old CC Sabathia not showing his age, the Yankees had a 3.72 ERA — third best in the American League.
