2018 Pinstripe Preview: Neil Walker

After going through much of the offseason unsigned, the Yankees swooped in and signed versatile infielder Neil Walker to a one-year deal worth $4-million. Despite signing the 32-year-old veteran to a big league deal, Walker is expected to begin the season coming off the bench, and he should see time at second, third, and first base with the Bronx Bombers. Now with his fourth big league club, Walker will make to look an impact on an otherwise youthful Yankee team.

The latest on the surprising Yankees managerial candidate: Carlos Beltran

On Wednesday Carlos Beltran was the latest candidate to interview for the managerial opening.  Yes the same Beltran who won his first World Series ring and retired. This probably doesn't come as much of a surprise since Beltran was vocal about his interest in managing someday. Apparently that day is now.

Here are a couple Carlos Beltran quotes per MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

Despite Beltran’s lack of coaching/managerial experience, he's always been mentioned as a very intelligent baseball mind who always worked well mentoring the younger players, and he was always well respected by his teammates and opponents. He had a very successful playing career, and if paired with a veteran former manager as a bench coach, i.e. Dusty Baker, he could do well with the Yankees.  This team is built to win for the next 5-10 years. It will be interesting to see if the Yankees will bring any more candidates in for interviews.

Brian Cashman said Beltran would be the last candidate they would interview and that his personal recommendation has been submitted.
