Aaron Boone, who is currently the Yankees’ manager and they are on a seven game losing streak, said that he had met Brian Cashman as well as Hal Steinbrenner just a few days before.
The three spoke about the individual players as well as the current state of the team. Entering Sunday’s series finale against the Red Sox, the Yankees were three games under .500 and eight games out of the last wild card spot with 39 games left in the season.
“We understand we’re in a tough spot and it’s not going well,” Boone said. “We’re in the business of trying to fix it and trying to [ask], ‘What are the best moves moving forward for us to try and get us on track?’”
Boone added that he checks in with Cashman daily and that he meets with Steinbrenner “fairly regularly throughout the year” whether things are going well or poorly.
Recent events have not been good. These conversations have included prospects. Boone said “it’s possible” the team promotes some farmhands before Sept. 1, which is when rosters expand, and that there would likely be more discussions about that on Sunday.
If the Yankees begin the season, Everson Pereira infielder Oswald Peraza, and Austin Wells catcher will be first to play.
