The Yankees fell short of a title in 2019, but it was still a successful campaign.
Manager Aaron Boone was at least acknowledged for that path traveled.
Boone was named an American League Manager of the Year finalist, Major League Baseball announced on Monday.
Along with Boone, the Twins' Rocco Baldelli and the Rays' Kevin Cash, were also named as those in consideration for the award.
The Yankees did take one crown this season, the AL East, with a 103-59 record, edging out the second-place Rays. In order to grab that divisional pennant and record, Boone helped guide the Yankees there after battling a slew of injuries this season, which might be an understatement.
In two seasons at the helm, Boone has led the club to a 203-121 record between both seasons. He's brought them to the playoffs both seasons.
AJ Hinch, who led the Astros to the World Series, was not named a finalist.
The last time a Yankee skipper brought home the award was in 1998 under Joe Torre's guidance, which ultimately led to World Series title No. 24 for the franchise.
The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Nov. 12.
