Eric Chavez gets ready before pitch with Yankees

The Yankees‘ coaching search continues, as Aaron Boone looks to fill out his staff. And a former Yankee has reportedly made the list.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman responded to a report from NJ.com’s Brendan Kuty that said the Yankees have contacted Eric Chavez to see if he would be interested in one of the vacancies. Cashman said they have indeed interviewed the 17-year MLB veteran.

New York is still looking to fill both base coach roles, as well as hitting coach and assistant hitting coach.

Luis Rojas, who Cashman also admitted to have interviewed, has a “strong likelihood” of joining the team as third base coach, per The New York Post’s Joel Sherman.

It isn’t known what role Chavez would fill in the Yankees’ minds. But, as Kuty pointed out, he does have a fiery nature about him that is similar to former third base coach Phil Nevin. If that’s something the Yanks want in the clubhouse still, Chavez may be the one to provide that spark.

Chavez, 43, was a special assistant to Cashman back in 2014, so the connection was there after he was done with his playing days. He also coached with the Angels’ Triple-A Salt Lake Bees in 2018, serving as their interim manager.
