After MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported Buck Showalter, Dusty Baker and John Gibbons were all getting interviews from the Astros, SNY's Andy Martino came to Twitter to agree. But he also dropped this nugget about Rojas...
"Agree, and a lot of [the Mets] focus seems to be on deciding whether Rojas is ready. Different folks have different opinions on that, but LR getting a long look," Martino wrote.
Rojas has the experience, but team brass is trying to figure out if the 38-year-old is ready to put that to the test as a big league manager. The quality control coach would be thrust into a situation that the Mets would love to be positive from the jump.

With the Mets now holding their second managerial search of the offseason, a couple of internal options have come up as possible replacements for Carlos Beltran.
SNY's Andy Martino has reported that Mets quality control coach Luis Rojas is "getting serious consideration" for the job.
The 38-year-old served as the Mets quality control coach in 2019, but he's been with the organization since 2007, managing at five different minor league levels.
Rojas is the brother of former Met Felipe Alou.
