Bowa To Make Decision By End Of Week

Posted by Mark McCray |

Still not saying it is very probable, but until he decides not to opt out of his contract in Los Angeles, there is still a small possibility for the Yankees to recruit Larry Bowa back to the Bronx.


The Yankees will have a clearer idea of who their third base coach will be later this week.

That's when Larry Bowa will meet with Dodgers brass to discuss his future. Bowa, who is the Yankees' No. 1 choice to replace Bobby Meacham, recently finished the first of a two-year deal to coach third for the Dodgers. Nevertheless, Bowa has an out in the contract.

Bowa, the best third base coach in baseball, was with the Yankees in 2006 and 2007 but not retained when manager Joe Torre didn't return for the 2008 season. Instead, Bowa joined Torre in Los Angeles.

If Bowa decides to stay with the Dodgers, the Yankees might turn to Mike Gallego or Dale Sveum.
