The New York Yankees, 28th in team batting average, have made a decision.
In an unusual move, the Yankees fired hitting coach Dylan Lawson on Tuesday, Yahoo Sports reported. The Yankees, who lost 4-7 to the Chicago Cubs earlier in the day, wrapped up their first half schedule with a coaching staff shakeup ahead of the All-Star break. ‘This is the first time Yankees GM Brian Cashman has fired a coach in-season in his 26-year career,’ Yahoo Sports said.카지노사이트
‘It’s no secret that I’ve been reluctant to change coaching staffs in-season in the past,’ Cashman said in a statement, adding, ‘I believe success and failure is a team effort. However, ultimately, I felt that a change was necessary,” he said in explaining his decision to fire Lawson. Lawson, who served as the Yankees’ minor league hitting coordinator, was promoted to big league hitting coach ahead of the 2022 season.The Yankees have been in an offensive slump since the departure of slugger Aaron Judge in early June. They have the lowest batting average (0.214) and on-base percentage (0.284) in the league since his departure, according to the New York Post. But it’s hard to blame Jersey alone. The Yankees have a team batting average of 0.231 on the season, 28th out of the 30 big league clubs. Their team on-base percentage is also .300, good for 26th.
Most of the offensive metrics have dropped to the bottom of the league, dropping them to fourth place in the American League East (49 wins, 42 losses). The gap to the first-place Tampa Bay Rays (58-35) in the division has grown to eight games, necessitating a late-season surge. MLB.com reported that a hitting coach to replace Lawson will likely be brought in from outside the organisation.
