The Yankees release Preston Mattingly

12 Comments

This has virtually zero baseball significance, but some people like dynasties, so we pass it along: the Yankees have released Preston Mattingly, son of Don.

In six seasons in the minors, Mattingly has put up a line of .232/.276./335.  Both his father’s current employer and his father’s former employer released him, so you have to figure that’s it for him.

At least as a player. Maybe he can be Magic Johnson’s special assistant for Mattingly-relations or something.
