The Yankees have chosen not to renew their contract to kill coach Marcus Thames. Athletic first reported on Thursday.
Leaving Temax after a disappointing AL wild card loss to the Red Sox last week is the first major loss of life for the Yankees staff.
Thames has been on the Yankees staff since 2016 and has been a hitting coach since 2018.
Yankees manager Aaron Bone’s contract also expired later this season, but he is expected to return.
