New York Yankees Offseason 2012: Jim Hendry Joins Staff As Special Assistant To Brian Cashman

The New York Yankees have come to an agreement with former Chicago Cubs general manager Jim Hendry to become a special assistant to general manager Brian Cashman, according to an ESPN report.

A major league source told ESPN the deal will keep Hendry in New York for multiple years.

Hendry spent 17 years with the Cubs, working his way from farm director to scouting director, assistant general manager and eventually general manager. During ten seasons as the Cubs general manager, the team won three division titles, advancing in 2003 to within five outs of the team's first World Series appearance since 1945. (Insert Steve Bartman reference here.)

Hendry was fired by Tom Ricketts after the Cubs followed a 75-win 2010 campain by winning 71 games in 2011. Former Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein was brought in as president of baseball operations and he hired Jed Hoyer to replace Hendry as general manager.
