Yankees hire Matthew Krause to be team's new strength coach

US PRESSWIRE

The Yankees have hired a new strength and conditioning coach.

The New York Yankees have hired Matthew Krause to be the team's new strength and conditioning coach, says George King of the New York Post.

Krause will replace Dana Cavalea, whom the Yankees fired a little over a month ago. Prior to being hired by New York, Krause was a member of the Cincinnati Reds' organization since 2002 and has served as the team's big league strength coach since 2004.

Fair or unfair, Cavalea was replaced due to the team's extreme amount of injuries this past season, which included the likes of Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Kevin Youkilis, and on down the line, thus Krause was brought in. And, for what it's worth, only eight teams, on average, have lost fewer days to the disabled list than the Reds since 2010. Perhaps Krause's magic can translate in the Bronx. Then again, the Yankees will once again be dealing with a roster chock full of old and brittle players, so we'll have to wait and see.
