According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Los Angeles Angels strategy to employ Nevin as their 3rd base coach.
Nevin, a one-time All-Star as a gamer, invested the last 4 seasons as Aaron Boone’s 3rd base coach in the Bronx. After the 2021 season ended, the Yankees chosen not to restore Nevin’s agreement, together with striking coach Marcus Thames and assistant striking coach P.J. Pilittere. First base coach Reggie Willits likewise left the club to coach at the University of Oklahoma.
Nevin’s time with the Yankees might eventually be kept in mind most for his unfortunate choice to send out Aaron Judge house from very first base upon a Giancarlo Stanton line drive off the Green Monster in the AL Wild Card Game versus the Red Sox. The Yankees were tracking 3-1 in the top of the 6th inning at the time, and Judge was lowered at the plate quickly following the dangerous send out.
To change Nevin, the Yankees worked with previous Mets supervisor Luis Rojas to coach 3rd base, keeping Rojas in New York after 2 seasons as the Mets supervisor.
