Cashman Signs Extension With Yankees

8:39pm: The extension runs through 2011.  Cashman looks forward to the challenge.

4:16pm: Kat O'Brien of Newsday is reporting that Brian Cashman and the Yankees have reached an agreement on a three-year extension.

Brian Cashman has agreed to return as the Yankees general manager on a three-year contract, Newsday has learned. Cashman deliberated over the decision about whether it was time to move on after 11 seasons as GM, but gave the Yankees an affirmative answer this afternoon. In the end, a Yankees source said, it came down to what was best for his family. The new contract will be for slightly more than Cashman had been making, putting it at in the ballpark of $2-million per year.

This move is not unexpected as both Jon Heyman and George A. King III had reported in recent days that Cashman wanted to return to the Yankees.

A formal announcement from the Yankees is expected later today.
