Yankees owner makes statement on Aaron Boone’s future

Aaron Boone at a press conference

New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner on Wednesday offered up a rather firm statement on the future of manager Aaron Boone.

Steinbrenner told Mark Didtler of the Associated Press that he did not anticipate changing managers. The comments seemingly signal that Boone will be back for the 2023 season.

Boone appeared to have solid job security even before Steinbrenner’s remarks. A year ago, he signed a new contract that runs through 2024, along with a team option for the 2025 season. In addition, despite the way the season ended, Boone led the team to 99 wins and their first ALCS appearance since 2019.

Fans may not be pleased with this news, especially since Boone’s decisions sometimes drew scorn and frustration. However, the Yankees evidently value the stability he brings, as well as his ability to hold the clubhouse together.
