  • Yankees' Joe Girardi will not return as manager in 2018: report

ESPN is reporting that New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi will not be back with the team next year. In a statement released via his agent, Steve Mandell, Girardi said that he appreciated the organization having given him the opportunity to lead the team.

Girardi had been working on a four-year, $16 million contract, which was set to expire on Tuesday. "Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration, and we've chose to pursue alternatives for the managerial position".

A three-time World Series champion as a player with the Yankees, Girardi succeeded Joe Torre as manager after the 2007 season and led NY to its 27th World Series title in 2009 but has fallen short each year since. The Yankees performed above the expectations of many with a young team this year, finishing with a 91-71 record.

Before becoming manager, Girardi played in the big leagues for 15 years.

Joe Girardi is reportedly out as manager of the New York Yankees after 10 seasons. "He has a tireless work ethic, and put his heart into every game he managed over the last decade".

Girardi won a 2009 World Series with the Yankees but before this season hadn't reached a playoff series since 2012.

"I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organization", Cashman said in a statement. "He should take great pride in our accomplishments during his tenure". His 910 regular-season wins rank sixth in franchise history, trailing Joe McCarthy (1,460), Joe Torre (1,173), Casey Stengel (1,149), Miller Huggins (1,067) and Ralph Houk (944).

Although the Yankees went far in the playoffs, there was controversy in the playoffs, where Girardi was held accountable [VIDEO] for the loss in Game 2 of the American League Division Series in Cleveland. On Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that some Yankee officials believed that Girardi was "spent" and "ready to move on".
