Yankees new pitching coach Matt Blake had just been promoted by Indians

Newly-hired Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake was a hot commodity.

The Yankees announced Thursday that Blake would replace longtime pitching coach Larry Rothschild on staff for the 2020 season. It turns out that Blake was just promoted to Cleveland’s director of pitching development just two days before the Yankees announced his hire, according to the Athletic.

Blake first joined the Indians as a lower level pitching coordinator in 2015 before getting promoted to assistant director of pitching development in 2016. But the Indians couldn’t hang on to the highly-touted pitching coach, who ultimately chose New York.
