The Yankees have let go of director of strength and conditioning Matt Krause following six seasons with the team, according to a report from The Post.
Krause had been with the Yankees for six seasons after spending the previous 11 years with the Reds organization.
The Post also notes that, while it's unclear if the litany of injuries the Yankees suffered this year had anything to do with Krause's exit, the 30 different players who had stints on the injured list in 2019 is believed to be a major league record.
Despite a 103-win season, the Yankees' injury woes were a topic of conversation all year long. Of the nine players in the team's opening day lineup, only Gleyber Torres and Brett Gardner were able to avoid the injured list for an extended period of time. Gardner did have a brief trip to the IL, but both Torres and Gardner played more than 140 games in 2019.
There's been a surprising amount of turnover in the Yankees' coaching staff for a team that won as many games as they did despite that adversity. Larry Rothschild was relieved of his duties as pitching coach in October while Josh Bard will be replaced in 2020 by Carlos Mendoza as the team's bench coach.
