After a disappointing season, Yankees fans are expecting some changes ahead of the ‘24 campaign. However, it doesn’t seem as if a change in manager is on the horizon in New York.
According to Andy Martino of SNY, Aaron Boone is expected to be back in his role as the Yankees manager in 2024, barring anything unexpected occurring when he meets with the front office on Wednesday in Tampa.
The Yankees’ “higher-ups” are set to meet at the team's Florida headquarters in order to review the disappointing ‘23 season. Per Martino, Boone is expected to be involved in those meetings, an indication that he figures to remain as the team’s manager.
Boone has one more year remaining on his current contract, which will expire after the ‘24 season. Despite missing the postseason for the first time since 2016, it seems New York’s front office is not quite ready to part ways with its manager.
After the team was eliminated from postseason contention in late September, superstar Aaron Judge voiced his support for Boone, saying he hoped the organization brought back the 50-year-old in 2024. Judge’s input reportedly played a significant role in the organization’s decision to retain Boone.
Boone has been the Yankees’ skipper since 2018. He’s led the team to five postseason appearances but never made it past the ALCS. The team’s 82 wins this year were its fewest since 1995, excluding the shortened ’20 season.
