MLB Rumors: Aaron Boone 'Among The Candidates' For Yankees Manager Job

Yankees managerial candidate Rob Thomson was Joe

On Friday, the Yankees announced that they have interviewed former Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge.

Former Yankees third baseman and current ESPN analysis Aaron Boone is among the candidates for the team's open manager job, ESPN's Buster Olney reported Thursday.

He was an ESPN analyst in 2014 and 2015 and has spent the last two seasons as a player development adviser with Toronto.

Things have ramped up a little on the managerial front in the Bronx this week.

But that's starting to change, and one of the names being tossed around likely will make Boston Red Sox fans sick to their stomachs.

Interviews may or may not be coming for Cone, Flaherty or Boone. Joe Girardi posted a 910-710 record in 10 seasons in New York, the best record in MLB during that period, and the Yankees reached the playoffs six times, winning the 2009 World Series.

The following offseason, Boone tore a knee ligament playing pickup basketball, which helped pave the way for the Yankees trading for Alex Rodriguez from the Rangers.

Boone hit one of the most iconic homers in Yankees history, a walk-off ALCS Game 7 homer against the Red Sox in 2003.
