Former Yankees Manager Joe Girardi Joins MLB Network

Joe Girardi will not be in a dugout this season, but he is still going to be around the game of baseball.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Girardi had been hired by the MLB Network as a studio analyst. The ex-manager of the New York Yankees will now be behind the desk for the 2018 season.

Girardi, 53, had spent the last decade as the manager of the Yankees. During his tenure in New York, he went 910-710 and won a World Series in 2009. Girardi was also the manager of the Florida Marlins during the 2006 season. He had a record of 78-84 in his lone year with the Marlins. Girardi won the NL Manager of the Year Award that season.

The Yankees reached the American League Championship Series in 2017 but lost to the Houston Astros in seven games. Despite a successful season, the team decided to move on from Girardi. It was reported that Girardi and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman were not getting along. The Yankees hired Aaron Boone to be their new manager in December.

It will be interesting to hear what Girardi has to say, as he has plenty of insight into what’s going on in the MLB. He will undoubtably bring a new perspective to the desk.

In all likelihood, Girardi will be back in the dugout within the next few years. For now though, he is going to give his thoughts on television.

New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is heading back to the injured list and could be out until August, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman and MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch.

Stanton has struggled to stay healthy this season, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone announced that the slugger was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a strained posterior collateral ligament in his right knee, according to The Athletic’s Lindsey Adler.

Stanton returned from the injured list last week after missing over two months with a biceps strain and other injuries.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters that Stanton is unlikely to return to the field during the month of July, and will not travel with the team to London for the upcoming series with the Boston Red Sox.

In a corresponding move, the Yankees called up outfielder Mike Tauchman to replace Stanton on the active roster, opting to pass over calling up Clint Frazier, who is likely on his way out of New York as we approach the trade deadline.
