(AP) Manager Joe Girardi has signed a four-year contract extension to stay with the New York Yankees.


General manager Brian Cashman had said after the team missed the playoffs that the Yankees wanted to keep Girardi, whose name was mentioned for the Cubs opening in his native Illinois.


New York took care of that quickly, announcing Wednesday that he's signed through the 2017 season.


The 48-year-old Girardi has led the team to the playoffs in four of his six seasons, winning the World Series in 2009. Under Girardi, the Yankees have gone a majors-best 564-408 (.580) since 2008.


A 15-year MLB catcher, Girardi played for the Yankees from 1996-99.
