Former Royals manager Tony Pena has interviewed with the Yankees for their possible opening for a first base coach. Luis Soho was the Yankees third base coach in 2005, but they want him to move to first base, however he’s considering the option of becoming a minor league manager.
Pena resigned from the Royals in May after an 8-25 start. He was 198-285 with Kansas City and led them to 104 losses, then a team record, in 20004. He took over for Tony Muser 38 games into the 2002 campaign. In 2003, the Royals spent the better portion of the season in first place and finished 83-79.
