Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman hasn’t officially announced the other candidates for the position, but he did say every candidate will participate in a conference call with the New York media.
Thomson managed one game last season after Girardi took the day to attend to personal matters. Thomson enjoyed his time as the Yankees interim manager and later expressed he would be willing to fill the position full-time.
Along with a new manager, the Yankees will see some new faces at the coaching positions; former third base coach Joe Espada accepted a bench coach position with the Houston Astros. Including Thomson, first base coach Tony Pena, pitching coach Larry Rothschild and bullpen coach Mike Harkey are currently free agents.
