The New York Yankees have retained a key member of their front office for 2023 and beyond.
This afternoon, the club announced that General Manager and Senior Vice President Brian Cashman would be staying in his role after signing a four-year contract.
Cashman’s contract had expired following the 2022 season.
The 55-year-old has served as the team’s general manager and senior vice president since 1998.
The Yankees also announced the news of Cashman’s extension on their various social media platforms, including Twitter.
The update on Twitter features a photo of Cashman taking questions from reporters with the word “re-signed” written at the top.

Yanks Extend Cashman
Since Cashman took over as the Yankees’ general manager, the team has won four World Series titles and five American League pennants.
New York put together a three-peat from 1998-2000 and reached the World Series again in 2001, this time falling short against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Yankees returned to the World Series in 2009, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies.
Cashman has made several notable trades and signings during his tenure with the Yankees.
This season, Cashman swung deals to acquire right-hander Frankie Montas from the Oakland Athletics, reliever Scott Effross from the Chicago Cubs, and former Gold Glove center fielder Harrison Bader from the St. Louis Cardinals.
Now, the baseball world watches with great interest as he attempts to re-sign American League MVP Aaron Judge, who has also met with the San Francisco Giants.
