There is a “strong likelihood” that former Mets manager Luis Rojas will take the job as the Yankees‘ third base coach, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

It was reported on Sunday that Rojas had interviewed with the Yankees to be one of their base coaches.

The Yankees have openings after both base coaches, Reggie Willits (first) and Phil Nevin (third), were not retained among a recent offseason staff shuffle. Manager Aaron Boone, however, received a three-year contract extension with an option for the 2025 season.

After the season, the Mets declined to pick up Rojas’ option for the 2022 season.

Rojas recently interviewed for the San Diego Padres’ managerial vacancy. Ultimately, the Padres with in a different direction and hired former Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin.

The 40-year-old Rojas posted a 103-119 record as the Mets’ manager from 2020-21.

Prior to becoming a first-time manager with the Mets, Rojas was a coach and manager at different levels in the organization from 2008-19.
