Mickey Callaway was relieved of his duties as the Mets manager following the 2019 season, but he may be out of the game coaching too long.
According to The Post's Joel Sherman, Callaway is being approached by multiple teams about a spot on their coaching staff for 2020.
One of those jobs is reportedly the Angels pitching coach position under their new manager in Joe Maddon. Callaway was the Indians pitching coach before taking the job with the Mets, where he helped lead a solid starting rotation that included Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer.
But it is Callaway's connection to Maddon that makes sense. He pitched for the Angels back in 2002 and 2003 while Maddon was the team's bench coach.
Callaway hasn't made a decision as to what he wants to pursue just yet, and there is still the option that he doesn't coach at all next season. The Mets still have to pay the final year of his contract, so he could essentially take the year to regroup and figure out what his next move is.
It will be interesting to see who else is looking into Callaway's services next season, but it seems that he'll have his options.
