Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is expected to sign a new contract as soon as next week.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman will have his work cut out for him this offseason, and the sooner he can get to work, the better. According to a report from ESPN New York, the soon-to-be free-agent general manager could have a new contract as soon as next week.

Cashman is expected to meet with part owner Hal Steinbrenner in the near future to extend his contract, which expires Oct. 31. The deal reportedly pays Cashman a little over $2 million a year.

After finishing the season with the best record in the American League, the Yankees crashed out of the playoffs with a loss to the Detroit Tigers in the American League Division Series. It was the first time New York did not reach the American League Championship Series since 2008. Central to the Yankees' attempts at returning to the playoffs will be how Cashman handles ace lefty CC Sabathia, who can choose to opt out of the last four years of his seven-year, $161 million contract.
