The New York Yankees have reached a new deal with general manager Brian Cashman, according to the MLB official Twitter account.

Cashman, 44, will remain with the Yankees under a three-year contract serving as the senior vice president and general manager.  The details of the contract have yet to be released.  His previous contract, however, was worth $6 million over three years.

The longest-serving Yankees GM since Hall of Famer Ed Barrow, Cashman came to the organization as a 19-year-old intern in 1986.  During his tenure with the team, he has earned five World Series rings, including four as GM.
