NEW YORK (AP) - Pitching coach Dave Eiland has been fired by the New York Yankees, the first move in what should be a busy offseason in the Bronx after a disappointing loss in the American League championship series.

General manager Brian Cashman would not divulge a reason for letting Eiland go after his third year as the team’s pitching coach. Cashman says the decision was his and the reason is private. He insisted Monday that it had nothing to do with the Yankees’ poor performance against the Texas Rangers in the ALCS.

Eiland was away from the team from June 4 through June 29 to deal with a personal matter.

Cashman’s next order of business will be to re-sign manager Joe Girardi. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera can also become free agents.
