NYY Brian Cashman Likely to Return in 2024

09 August, 2023

The New York Yankees are in serious danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2016. However, owner Hal Steinbrenner is not interested in changing the front office leadership. Rather, according to Bob Klapisch of, general manager Brian Cashman’s job is safe regardless of how the season plays out.

“The idea (of firing Cashman) isn’t even on the table,” said a source to Klapisch. “It’s not up for discussion.”

Since 1998, Cashman has been the Yankees’ general manager. He has designed several World Series-winning teams. He’s also put together a roster that has a 59-55 record so far. In this year’s American League East, that translates to fourth place and an 11 1/2-game disadvantage. In the race for the third and final American League wild-card slot, the Yankees trail the Toronto Blue Jays by 4 1/2 games. Their run differential of plus-six is the lowest in the division.

Whereas Cashman is almost guaranteed to return for another season, manager Aaron Boone’s future is less certain, in part because his contract expires after the 2024 season. That doesn’t mean Steinbrenner will make a change in the dugout; after all, this isn’t the first time Boone has occupied what appears to be a hot seat; but if one of the two leaves, he’ll be the odds-on favorite.

The Yankees have hit a rough patch recently. Most notably, they placed veteran first baseman Anthony Rizzo on the injured list with a possible concussion sustained in a collision with San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. in late May. Boone kept playing Rizzo even after he complained about fogginess and was in the midst of a terrible slump.

The Yankees have a 13% probability of making the playoffs, according to SportsLine’s model.
