Former Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson and former Yankees OF Carlos Beltran have both been informed they are out of the running for the team's manager position.
Thomson, who has spent 28 years in the Yankees, doesn't have any bad feelings toward the organization after the decision.
From Thomson: "Yes I'm out of the running (for #Yankees manager). No hard feelings on my part! It's the business... the Steinbrenners and the Yankee organization have taken great care of me for 28 years!!!! I've been a lucky man!!!!"- Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) December 1, 2017
Now, Thomson is reportedly finalizing a contract with the Phillies to be their new bench coach, according to CBS Local.
Beltran, who announced his retirement after winning the World Series with the Astros, was also off GM Brian Cashman's list, per Yahoo's Tim Brown. He was the most recent interviewee for the position.
"I'm out of the race, but extremely happy and blessed for the opportunity to interview for one of the most prominent franchises in sports," Beltran texted The Post's Joel Sherman.
There were reports that stated Beltran will take a different position with the Yankees if he wasn't chosen to manage the team. However, according to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, he has said he was "looked forweard to spending time with my wife and kids and enjoy my first summer vacation in more than 23 years."
