TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- George Steinbrenner has not given up on Darryl Strawberry.
The New York Yankees <sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/nyy/> owner said Tuesday the troubled former outfielder will be offered a job as a player development coach after completing court-mandated drug treatment.
``He will join me,'' Steinbrenner said. ``He will come with us. He knows he has a place to go.''
Strawberry was sentenced May 18 to two years' house arrest at a rural Florida drug treatment center.
Steinbrenner has been monitoring the progress of the eight-time All-Star, and said he deserves another opportunity.
``I'll take that chance,'' Steinbrenner said. ``You got reach out and help.''
The position likely would involve working with minor league players at the Yankees' complex in Florida.

Darryl Stberry as he used to sign my Tidewater Tides programs @ Met Park in the early 80's is a very interesting fellow. I've followed his career for the last 20 years and I hope he does well with this latest chance. He's a blown a few recent chances, so maybe this one will be good for him? I suspect if it doesn't do well then you may not hear to much about it.

Lets hope he does well, George certainly stands behind him. :) As many flops as he has made I have no reason to believe he will make it though.
