CARLSBAD, Calif. - The Mets are planning to conduct bench coach interviews next week, before diving into their search to replace fired hitting coach Pat Roessler. But Chili Davis, recently axed by the Cubs, is on their early list for hitting coach, according to major league sources.
Following a 19-year MLB playing career, Davis has served as hitting coach for the A's, Red Sox and Cubs. Chicago fired him after the 2018 season.
Candidates for the bench coach position include former managers Jim Riggleman and Pete Mackanin.
