Gary Denbo, the Yankees’ vice president of player development, is heading to Miami to become the Marlins’ director of player development and amateur scouting, according to George A. King III. The move should come as no surprise since Derek Jeter is at the helm of the Fish, and there had been plenty of speculation about Denbo leaving.
Denbo has held many titles in his tenure with the Yanks, which dates back to the 1990’s, including managing Jeter in the Gulf Coast League in 1992 and serving as the club’s hitting coach in 2001. The two still have a close relationship and it was inevitable that the Captain started poaching Bombers.
The Marlins have not requested permission to speak with any other Yankees’ front office personnel, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com
Today is Gary Denbo's last day with Yankees. He is joining the Marlins as the director of player development and amateur scouting.
