Yankees hire Gary Tuck and Trey Hillman

Justin K. Aller

The Yankees have hired Gary Tuck and Trey Hillman for the 2014 season.

Tuck has been hired as the Yankees' new bullpen coach after Mike Harkey left to be the pitching coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He served in the same role for the Red Sox between 2007 to 2012 and was Joe Girardi's bench coach back in 2006 with the Florida Marlins. This marks his fourth stint with the organization.

Hillman returns to the organization as the Yankees' special assistant for major and minor league operations. He has spent the last three years as the Dodgers' bench coach and has experience managing the Royals and Nippon Ham Fighters over in Japan. He has actually managed six difference Yankee minor league teams in his career.

Other additions to the organization this offseason include Mike Quade and Matthew Krause. Quade will serve as the organization's roving outfield and baserunning instructor after previously serving as the Cubs manager. Krause has been hired as the new strength and conditioning coordinator for the major league team, replacing Dana Cavalea after he was released following the 2013 season. Krause had held the same position with the Reds for the past nine seasons.
