Former Mets manager Luis Rojas expected to become Yankees next 3rd base coach under Aaron Boone

Luis Rojas won’t have to move very far for his next job in baseball. About six miles to be in tact.

Rojas, who spent the last two seasons as the New York Mets manager, is expected to become the third base coach for the New York Yankees under Aaron Boone.

Rojas would be replacing Phil Nevin, who was the Yankees third base coach since Boone’s hiring in 2018. Most fans will remember Nevis for his blunder in the 2021 American League Wild Card Game in which he sent Aaron Judge home to get thrown out, ending a potential rally to overtake Boston.

The 40-year-old Rojas was the Mets quality control coach before Carlos Beltran stepped down as the Mets manager before he ever managed a single game due to the Houston Astros cheating scandal and Rojas was named the manager before 2020.

The Mets went 103-119 under Rojas before he was dismissed as the manager.
