The Yankees are promoting player-development staffers Dillon Lawson and Desi Druschel as their hitting coach and assistant pitching coach, according to a report Friday by The Athletic’s Lindsey Adler.

Lawson has been with the Yankees since October 2018 as the minor league hitting coordinator. From November 2017 to October 2018, he was a minor league hitting coach with the Houston Astros.

Prior to his time with the Astros, Lawson spent more than a year in college baseball as the University of Missouri’s hitting coach from August 2016 to November 2017.

Lawson spent an original stint with the Astros as a minor league hitting coach from December 2015 to August 2016. He got his start in college baseball through various assistant roles with Lindenwood University (2007-09), IMG Academy (2010-11), Morehead State University (2009-12) and Southeast Missouri State University (2012-15).

Druschel, meanwhile, was previously the Yankees’ minor league manager of pitch development.

On Nov. 14, the Yankees did not renew the contracts of hitting coach Marcus Thames and assistant hitting coach P.J. Pilittere.
