Report: Yankees to Name Kevin Reese Head of Minor League Operations

According to a report from the New York Post’s George King, the Yankees will be naming Kevin Reese as their new head of minor league operations.  He will be taking over for Gary Denbo, who left to join Derek Jeter in Miami.

Reese joined the Yankees as a scout after the 2008 season and has risen up the ranks.  In 2016 he was named the director of professional scouting for the organization.

He is, of course, no stranger to the organization.  Reese originally played for the Yankees in the minors from 2002-2007.  The Yankees acquired him from the San Diego Padres in exchange for infielder Bernie Castro.  At the time he was considered the 23rd best prospect in the organization.

Reese finished his playing career after the 2007 season, he hit .292 over 849 career minor league games, most of them with the Yankees.  He had a cup of coffee with the big club in 2005 and 2006, hitting .385 in 12 major league games for the Bronx Bombers.

Other candidates who interviewed for the job were John Kremer the Yankees director of performance science as well as director of minor league operations Eric Schmitt as well as minor league field coordinator Carlos Mendoza.
