Yanks Fire Hitting Coach Dillon Lawson
Stakes Content Team


The struggling New York Yankees have made a coaching change, announcing the dismissal of hitting coach Dillon Lawson. Lawson, who had been with the organization since 2018 and in his second season as the team’s hitting coach, was let go due to the team’s underperformance.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman acknowledged the rarity of midseason coaching changes but believed a new voice overseeing the team’s hitting operations was necessary for improved performance in the second half of the season. Cashman emphasized the collective nature of successes and failures in the organization.

The Yankees have narrowed down their options for Lawson’s replacement to two candidates and are expected to make a decision soon, according to sources. Should be an interesting new hire regardless of who fills the role.


The Yankees’ offensive production has been lackluster, particularly with the absence of Aaron Judge, the reigning AL MVP, due to a torn ligament in his right big toe. The team ranks 18th in runs scored, 28th in batting average, and 21st in OPS among all Major League teams through 91 games. I guess when you’re hitting almost as bad as the Oakland A’s, it’s time for a change.


Seeking a turnaround in their hitting performance, the New York Yankees have made the decision to relieve Dillon Lawson of his duties as hitting coach. The team is now in the process of identifying his replacement as they aim to improve their offensive output and regain their competitive edge in the second half of the season.
