New York Yankees have re-signed manager Aaron Boone. He has received a three-year extension.
According to Yes Network’s Jack Curry, Boone also has a club option for the 2025 season. His current deal was set to expire in several weeks at the end of the World Series.
He has led the Yankees the past four seasons. During this stretch, he has a 328-218 record.
Each season, he guided the Yankees to the postseason. However, Boone is just 11-11 in the extra season.
This season, Boone guided the Yankees to the American League Wild Card Game. New York was eliminated by their arch-rivals, the Boston Red Sox, who advanced to an American League Divisional Series with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Boone finished either first or second in the American League East during his tenure. Only once though, in 2019, did the Yankees finish the regular season in first place.
He guided the team to a 92-70 record this season. In his first two seasons, in 2018 and 2019, he guided the team won 100 or more games (203-121).
Last season due to the coronavirus, MLB played a 60-game season that began in July.
The Yankees have not won the World Series since the 2009 season when they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies. The pressure is on Boone to get to the World Series and win it.
During his managerial career in the Big Apple, Boone has not guided the Yankees to the World Series. The furthest he guided the team to was the American League Championship Series in 2019.
The Houston Astros defeated the Yankees 4-2 in six games. The Astros eventually lost in the World Series to the Washington Nationals.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
