Yankees turn to young pitching coach for high-tech approach

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Just four years ago, Matt Blake was varsity pitching coach at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, about 20 miles outside of Boston. Next spring, the 34-year-old will be guiding the high-priced arms of the New York Yankees.

"The biggest thing is just finding out where the player is at and what it is that makes him tick," Blake said Thursday after his hiring as Yankees pitching coach was formally announced. "Across different ages or nationalities and cultures, you got to get to the root of what is it that they are seeking for help and then bring it to the edge of their learning zone, if you will."

Blake replaced Larry Rothschild, who was fired after nine seasons and got hired as pitching coach of the San Diego Padres.
