Cashman Says Yankees’ Focus Is ‘Pitching, Pitching, Pitching’

The New York Yankees will focus on “pitching, pitching, pitching” as they seek to improve their starting rotation and bullpen during the Major League Baseball offseason, General Manager Brian Cashman said.

Cashman said hitting isn’t a concern for New York, which had a major league best 222 regular-season home runs this year while ranking second to the Boston Red Sox in runs scored and runs batted in. By contrast, Yankees pitchers combined for a 3.73 earned run average to rank 11th of 30 major league teams.
