The Yankees have continued filling their coaching voids as they added Josh Bard (bench coach), Phil Nevin (third base coach), and Reggie Willits (first base coach) to their staff.
They have also hired Carlos Mendoza as their infield and quality control coach. He will be in uniform and in the dugout during games.
Bard, who has been the Dodgers bullpen coach for the past two seasons, was a former catcher and teammate of manager Aaron Boone's back with the Indians.
The 39-year-old Bard hit .254 with 39 homers and 220 RBI in his 10-year career in the major leagues. He retired in 2011, and spent time as a scout and a member of the Dodgers' front office.
Nevin was the third base coach for the Giants last season, and has various other managerial experiences. He was manager of Double-A Erie Seawolves in 2010 followed by Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens after that season. He also was interviewed for the Astros' manager role at one point as well.
Willits has served as the Yankees' outfield and baserunning coordinator since 2015. He played six seasons in the MLB, all with the Angels where he hit .258 with 35 doubles and 40 stolen bases.
Larry Rothschild will stay on board as the Yankees' pitching coach. Boone said that at least one coach joining his staff will be Spanish-speaking.
