The ScoreCubs name Carter Hawkins new GM

The Chicago Cubs officially hired Carter Hawkins as their new general manager to work under president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer, the team announced Friday.Hawkins becomes the 16th GM in franchise history after being poached from the Cleveland Indians, where he spent 14 seasons and most recently served as assistant GM."I am thrilled to bring Carter into our organization," Hoyer said in a statement. "He has earned a fantastic reputation as a leader through hard work, open-mindedness, humility, and intelligence. I enjoyed getting to know him throughout the interview process, and it quickly became clear that we share the same passion for team building. I look forward to partnering with him to build the next great Cubs team."Chicago will formally introduce Hawkins during a press conference Monday at Wrigley Field.The Cubs have undergone transformative changes to their roster over the past few months. Chicago began making moves as Theo Epstein stepped down as president of baseball operations, resulting in Hoyer's promotion from GM. Hoyer, who helped assemble the 2016 World Series club, then parted with multiple members of the championship roster, including Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and Javier Baez.Copyright © 2021 Score Media Ventures Inc.

The ScoreYankees' hitting, 3B coaches won't return in 2022

The New York Yankees have informed hitting coach Marcus Thames and third base coach Phil Nevin that their contracts won't be renewed for the 2022 season, according to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.Nevin, 50, joined the Yankees from the San Francisco Giants prior to the 2018 campaign. The former infielder somewhat infamously sent Aaron Judge home during the sixth inning of the AL wild-card game against the Boston Red Sox, resulting in Judge being thrown out by several feet. pic.twitter.com/48cDjKcOp3 MLB (@MLB) October 6, 2021 Thames, 44, has been New York's hitting coach since the 2018 season. He was originally hired by the Yankees organization in 2013 to act as a hitting coach for High-A Tampa."They made a decision," Thames said, according to Brendan Kuty of NJ.com. "I just hate that we didn't win a championship. But they want to go in a different direction, and I guess I wasn't the voice that they thought to get us over the hump."Despite having a lineup filled with star sluggers including Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and DJ LeMahieu, the Yankees ranked seventh among AL teams by wRC+. The club added Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo prior to the trade deadline but fell short of a postseason run, losing to the Boston Red Sox in the AL wild-card game.In addition to Thames and Nevin, manager Aaron Boone's contract is also set to expire following the conclusion of the World Series.Copyright © 2021 Score Media Ventures Inc.
