Hensley Meulens will interview for the Yankees' managerial vacancy, the Daily News has confirmed.

Brian Cashman said Sunday that the team was suspending the interview process until the GM meetings are complete on Thursday. They will join Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson and former Indians and Mariners manager Eric Wedge as the only known candidates to interview for the position so far.

"I can't simulate what I do in NY and have the best kind of interview down here", general manager Brian Cashman told reporters when he arrived on Sunday night. He has been with ESPN as an analyst since his retirement following the 2009 season.

Aaron Boone celebrates after hitting the game-winning home run in the bottom of the 11th inning against the Boston Red Sox during Game 7 of the American League Championship Series on October 16, 2003 at Yankee Stadium. He was the Giants hitting coach from 2010 to 2016 and was recently named their bench coach.

Boone, 44, has never coached or managed, but comes from a baseball family, and the Yankees are intrigued about whether his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience.

Meulens, 50, played for the Yankees from 1989-93 and also briefly played for the Expos and Diamondbacks.

Meulens speaks five languages and has strong ties with Didi Gregorius, working each winter back in Curacao with the Yankees shortstop.
