APPLICATION APPROVED; the almighty Yankees’ Minor League Manager is hired by….

On January 9, it was reported that the New York Yankees will need to locate a new Single-A manager after their current one was hired by the Miamis Marlin to become an executive. Minor league managers’ departures, while noteworthy, rarely make headlines. That is, unless it’s Rachel Balkovec, who continues to break baseball records. The 36-year-old has been appointed as the Marlins’ director of player development, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. She will leave her managerial position with the Yankees’ Single-A affiliate, the Tampa Tarpons, where she has spent the previous two seasons. When New York hired Balkovec in January 2022, she became the first woman to be the full-time manager of a Major League-affiliated team.

And, while he appears to be available for acquisition, it will not happen until another team — the Yankees are among his pursuers — offers the amount that the White Sox believe he is worth.

“All it takes is one team wanting to jump out and get a deal done,” White Sox general manager Chris Getz told reporters in Chicago on Tuesday. “In Dylan’s situation, I don’t believe there is a team out there that hasn’t expressed some sort of interest in him. They are all in different situations.

“If we believe there is a fit that benefits our club, we will strongly evaluate it. That hasn’t happened yet.”

Despite missing out on Yoshinobu Yamamoto, the Yankees’ rotation still has a void

more perfect the management, this is only the beginning.
