After the great Bronx epidemic in 2019, the Yankees continue to overhaul their employees and their training and conditioning processes.
An industry source confirmed a report from The Athletic that the Yankees will hire Eric Cressey, a celebrity in the performance world, to monitor their training and conditioning.
Former director of strength and conditioning, Matt Krause, was fired, as The Post first reported on December 20, and longtime top athlete Steve Donohue, who started with the Yankees organization in 1979 and 1986 under the legendary trainer Gene the Big League Club member Monahan will take on an emeritus role. The Yankees plan to announce their reorganization shortly with exact titles.
Last season, the Yankees won 103 regular season games and another five in October, sustaining massive injuries. A total of 30 players recorded 39 remaining on the casualty list, and their 2,433 lost days against the IL set a known sport record, according to Major League Baseball. General Manager Brian Cashman made his displeasure public on June 30 during the team's visit to London when he said: "I have gone through the process and I am leaving it. We always evaluate our processes. If there [are] Gaps or problems or mistakes that we have made will then be fixed. "
You were treated. Cressey co-founded Cressey Sports Performance with offices in Massachusetts and Florida and worked with star pitchers such as Max Scherzer, Corey Kluber and the Mets Noah Syndergaard. He hosts a podcast and writes a blog. As The Athletic reported, the Yankees will allow him to continue working with players from other teams.
Coach Michael Schuk, who has spent the previous six seasons as Donohue's deputy, will take the lead.
