Yankees Managerial Candidate Lost

Trey Hillman, former Yankees minor league manager, Texas farm director and world champion Japanese baseball manager, will become the manager of the Kansas City Royals next season. Although a darkhorse, Hillman was a trendy pick to become the next Yankees manager.

The Kansas City Royals today announced they have reached an agreement on a multi-year contract with Trey Hillman as manager. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Hillman, 44, is currently managing the Nippon Ham Fighters in Japan’s Pacific League and will be introduced to the Kansas City media in a 2:00 p.m. press conference on Monday afternoon in the interview room at Kauffman Stadium.
Hillman may become a plausible candidate down the line, but to me, it's still a two horse race between Girardi and the Hitman.
