After parting ways with Mickey Callaway, the Mets are searching for a new manager. Here's the latest...


Nov. 1, 3:20 PM:

Carlos Beltran has told the Mets that his ideal bench coach would be former manager Terry Collins, SNY's Andy Martino reported Friday. However, that is not something that is guaranteed to happen.

Martino reported earlier Friday that Beltran's managerial candidacy was gaining "late momentum," before a source confirmed that the Mets planned to hire him. 

When Beltran interviewed for the Yankees manager job in 2017, he made the same request regarding Collins as his potential bench coach. That manager job eventually went to Aaron Boone

Nov. 1, 12:06 PM:

Brewers bench coach Pat Murphy has been eliminated from contention for Mets manager, reports Jon Heyman. Nationals first base coach Tim Bogar was eliminated from contention on Thursday night, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

That leaves Eduardo Perez, Carlos Betlran, and Derek Shelton among the known finalists for the job.

Perez and Beltran have been serious candidates throughout the process, SNY's Andy Martino reported, adding that Perez had seemed to have an edge and noting that it's not uncommon for teams to keep a few candidates in the process while negotiations are ongoing.

Oct. 31, 10:30 PM:

Nationals first base coach Tim Bogar has been eliminated from contention by the Mets as a managerial candidate, according to a report from

Sherman reported on Wednesday that Bogar was the only finalist for the job that had yet to have his third-round interview with the team. SNY's Andy Martino noted on Thursday that Bogar, along with Eduardo Perez, had made a good impression with the team, and was considered by some involved with the search as a frontrunner for the job. 

Sherman, who had previously reported that Bogar would meet with the Mets again this week, noted that with him now seemingly out of the mix, Perez, Carlos Beltran, Pat Murphy, and Derek Shelton have now all had their chances of becoming the next Mets manager raised. 

Oct. 30, 9:05 PM:

According to a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Nationals first base coach Tim Bogar is the only finalist remaining in the Mets' managerial search who is yet to have his third-round interview with the team.

This makes sense, of course, with the Nationals going head-to-head with the Astros in the World Series. Sherman notes that Bogar will meet with the Mets again by the end of the week. 

Carlos Beltran, Eduardo Perez, and Derek Shelton have all had their third interviews with the club, per Sherman, which primarily consist of meeting with Mets ownership. SNY's Andy Martino had previously reported that trio would all be receiving third-round interviews this week.

Oct. 29, 8:59 AM:

Tony DeFrancesco has interviewed for the Mets' managerial opening and could still be in the mix, reports SNY's Andy Martino.

DeFrancesco has been the Mets' Triple-A manager since 2018 -- in Las Vegas in 2018 and in Syracuse in 2019 after the team relocated.

In 2012, DeFrancesco had a stint as the Astros' interim manager, going 16-25 during a season where the Astros finished 55-107.

The 56-year-old DeFrancesco started his managing career in 1994 and has also coached in the majors (with the Athletics as third base coach in 2010). He was the manager for Triple-A Fresno from 2015 to 2017 (in the Astros' farm system) and won the Baseball America Minor League Manager of the Year award in 2015.

Oct. 28, 4:10 PM:

Derek Shelton will be getting a third interview for Mets manager, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Along with Shelton, Tim Bogar, Eduardo Perez, and Carlos Beltran are also receiving third interviews, SNY's Andy Martino has reported, with Martino noting that there are "likely more" candidates interviewing a third time. 

Oct. 27, 5:10 PM:

According to SNY's Andy Martino, Pat Murphy is not the only "mystery candidate" in the mix.

Murphy, currently serving as the Brewers' bench coach, has had multiple interviews with the Mets, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Oct. 27, 2:31 PM:

The Mets' third round of managerial interviews will begin this week, reports SNY's Andy Martino, who notes that Eduardo Perez, Tim Bogar, and Carlos Beltran are among those getting another interview. 

However, the above names aren't the only ones being asked back for a third round, according to Martino. 

Oct. 25, 2:08 PM:

Tim Bogar has become a strong contender to become the Mets' next manager, SNY's Andy Martino reported.

According to Martino, finalists have been meeting this week with Mets ownership -- an indication that the process will wrap up soon.

While Bogar is said to have interviewed well, Carlos Beltran and Eduardo Perez "have backers in the Mets organization" and remain in the running for the job.

The 52-year-old Bogar, currently serving as the Nationals' first base coach, had his second interview with the Mets on Thursday. 

Oct. 25, 1:34 PM:

Astros manager A.J. Hinch is "definitely not in mix" for Mets manager "on any level," SNY's Andy Martino reported.

If the Mets tried to pry Hinch -- who is close to GM Brodie Van Wagenen -- away from the Astros, they would have to trade for him since he is under contract.

Oct. 23, 8:04 PM:

It doesn't sound like the Mets are in much of a rush when it comes to naming their next manager.

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets may look to bring back two or three finalists for another round of interviews.

Derek Shelton, Luis Rojas, Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran, Tim Bogar, and Eduardo Perez all received second round interviews with the club.

MLB.com's Anthony DiComo has reported that the Mets are 'not particularly close' to naming a manager, and that the process could extend well beyond this week. 

Oct. 21, 3:48 PM:

Derek Shelton will be receiving a second interview for Mets manager, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post

According to Sherman, Skip Schumaker and Mike Bell will not be receiving second interviews. 

In addition to Shelton, Luis Rojas, Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran, Tim Bogar, and Eduardo Perez have also made it to the second round of the process. 

Girardi is having his second interview with the Mets on Tuesday, with Perez and Bogar having theirs on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, SNY's Andy Martino confirmed. Beltran's interview will likely be on Friday, according to Martino.

According to Martino, there remains a high level of mystery and intrigue in the process, including a potential "bombshell candidate" yet to emerge.

Oct. 21, 8:09 AM:

The fifth candidate to receive a second interview for Mets manager will be Luis Rojas, reports Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.

Rojas, 38, worked as the Mets' quality control coach in 2019 and has been working in the organization since 2007.

Oct. 20, 10:09 PM:

Among the four finalists reportedly set to advance in the Mets' managerial search, one interview will be conducted this week.

The fourth finalist, as first reported by Ken Rosenthal of MLB on FOX and The Athletic, is Tim Bogar.

And according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Bogar will meet with the Mets for his second-round interview on Thursday.

Oct. 20, 9:58 PM:

The Mets have reportedly zeroed in on four finalists.

According to Ken Rosenthal of MLB on FOX and The Athletic, only a handful of the previously reported candidates will be considered going forward.

Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran, Eduardo Perez and Tim Bogar are still in the running to become the next Mets manager, Rosenthal reported.

Oct. 19, 7:24 PM:

The Mets will begin their second round interviews next week, per SNY Insider Andy Martino.

Martino also noted that a decision by the end of the month is still a possibility, though the Mets are still doing some digging into names that have not surfaced yet. 

To this point, the known candidates are Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran, Eduardo Perez, Tim Bogar, Luis Rojas, Mike BellDerek Shelton, and Skip Schumaker. 

Oct. 18, 3:27 PM:

Skip Schumaker, currently serving as first base coach for the Padres, interviewed with the Mets on Friday, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Schumaker, 39, retired after the 2017 season after an 11-year career with the Cardinals, Dodgers, and Reds.

He has been the Padres' first base coach since 2018.

Oct. 18, 2:10 PM:

Nationals bench coach Tim Bogar will get an in-person interview for Mets manager, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

With the Nationals off until the World Series begins on Oct. 22, it's possible Bogar's interview will take place within the next few days. 

Oct. 18, 12:33 PM:

"There is word of at least one more mystery candidate" for Mets manager, SNY's Andy Martino reported on Friday, adding that a "surprise" hire is more than possible.

Martino added that the first round of interviews is winding down, but that the team is being extremely covert about the process.

The known candidates are Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran, Eduardo Perez, Tim Bogar, Luis Rojas, Mike Bell, and Derek Shelton

Oct. 17, 1:10 PM:

Joe Girardi's interview with the Mets has already taken place, reports SNY's Andy Martino. 

Meanwhile, Girardi, Buck Showalter, and Dusty Baker will all have second interviews with the Phillies for their manager job, reports Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer

Breen -- who reports that Girardi and Showalter are viewed as the favorites -- added that the three above candidates are believed to be the only candidates for the Phillies job, with the process expected to wrap up on Monday and a resolution expected soon after. 

Oct. 16, 6:40 PM:

Add another name into the mix for the Mets' next manager.

According to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, Nationals first base coach Tim Bogar is another name to keep an eye on for the Mets job. A member of the Nats coaching staff for the past two seasons, Bogar also has coaching experience with the Rangers, Red Sox, and Rays. In 2014, he was the Rangers interim manager for 22 games, coaching the team to a 14-8 record. 

In 2015, he moved into the Angels front office as a special assistant to GM Jerry Dipoto, and he was named the Mariners GM prior to the 2016 campaign, where he remained for two seasons.

Bogar does have minor league managerial experience, and he was also a player for the Mets for 1993-96. In 297 games with the Mets, he hit .242 with six home runs and 57 RBI. 

Oct. 16, 3:19 PM:

Joe Girardi has stepped down as the manager for USA Baseball -- the team he was supposed to manage beginning on Nov. 2 in advance of the 2020 Olympics

"Joe Girardi, who was named the manager of Team USA in August, has stepped down from his role with Team USA as he pursues open managerial opportunities in Major League Baseball," USA Baseball said Wednesday in a press release.

Luis Rojas, another Mets managerial candidate, is still scheduled to manage the Dominican Republic team in the lead up to 2020. 

Oct. 15, 4:12 PM:

Some sources see Mike Bell as a dark horse candidate to become the Mets' manager because of a strong relationship with GM Brodie Van Wagenen, SNY's Andy Martino reported.

Martino also spoke with Aaron Boone, who said he viewed Eduardo Perez as a "great candidate."

Oct. 15, 10:39 AM:

Joe Girardi's interview with the Mets is happening soon, SNY's Andy Martino reported on Tuesday, adding that Eduardo Perez and Carlos Beltran are other serious candidates for the job.

According to Martino, there is "heat" around the trio of Girardi, Perez, and Beltran.

Oct. 14, 3:28 PM:

Eduardo Perez is in New York on Monday for what is his second interview for the Mets' vacant managerial job, SNY's Andy Martino reported.

Perez, who has asked Yankees manager Aaron Boone for advice about the interview process, had his first interview over the phone. 

The 50-year-old Perez played for seven different teams during his major league career from 1993 to 2006. He also played one year in Japan -- with Hanshin in 2001. 

Since retiring, Perez has managed in Puerto Rico (where he was named 2008 Manager of the Year), managed Colombia in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, served as hitting coach for the Marlins (2011-12), and as bench coach for the Astros (2013).

Perez is currently an analyst for ESPN and SiriusXM.

He joins Carlos Beltran (who interviewed last week), Joe Girardi, Luis Rojas, Mike Bell, and Derek Shelton as candidates who will or have been interviewed.

Oct. 13, 6:57 PM:

Carlos Beltran spoke with the media Saturday for the first time since the Mets interviewed him Thursday, as SNY's Andy Martino reported.

While Beltran did not confirm that he interviewed, sources told Martino that his interview with the Mets "went well."

Also, Beltran said, the Mets are the only team he is considering to become a manager for, according to Nathalie Alonso of MLB's Spanish site, LasMayores.

Beltran declined managerial interviews with the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres, solely prioritizing the Mets.

Oct. 13, 3:51 PM:

The Phillies had just fired Gabe Kapler last week, and they're already starting their interview process. And a certain interviewee just so happens to be someone on the Mets list as well. 

Joe Girardi is reportedly interviewing with Philadelphia in the New York area on Monday, per NBC Sports' Jim SalisburyBuck Showalter is also expected to interview on Monday, while Dusty Baker will interview later this week. 

The Mets also have Girardi reportedly set for an interview this week, while already having Carlos Beltran in last Thursday. It will be a fight for these NL East rivals to see who gets the right manager.

Oct. 11, 8:33 PM:

The Mets in-person interviews have begun.

According to SNY Insider Andy Martino, the team interviewed Carlos Beltran on Thursday, per a source.

Beltran has previously said that he'd "have to listen" if the Mets came calling, and now he is apparently the first candidate to interview in person with the team. He currently works as a special advisor to Yankees GM Brian Cashman

Martino also notes that GM Brodie Van Wagenen has been conducting preliminary telephone interviews with other candidates.

Oct. 11, 12:52 PM:

The Mets have had internal discussions regarding John Gibbons, though the team has yet to contact him, according to SNY's Andy Martino

Gibbons compiled a 793-789 record in parts of 11 seasons as the Blue Jays manager, split across two separate stints in the Toronto dugout. The Blue Jays let him go following the 2018 season. He also had a brief major league career as a player, appearing in 18 games for the Mets, including eight during the 1986 championship season. 

Oct. 10, 10:27 PM:

According to SNY Insider Andy Martino, Joe Girardi is set to interview with the Mets next week.

The former Yankees and Marlins manager has already interviewed with the Cubs.

Martino has previously reported that Girardi wants to manage again, and will consider the Mets' opening. Girardi said on WFAN Tuesday "Again, I hope I get an opportunity to do it again. ...I'll be in New York next week doing studio work, and we'll see what happens."

Oct. 10, 12:54 PM:

The Mets will have Twins bench coach Derek Shelton for an in-person interview for their vacant manager role, SNY's Andy Martino confirmed. He joins Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran and Mike Bell in that category of the interview process.

The news was first reported by Joel Sherman of the NY Post, who notes the Pirates may also be looking into Shelton for their managerial search.

Shelton has served as the Twins bench coach for the past two seasons, including the Twins 101-win campaign in 2019 with Rocco Baldelli at the helm. Before his time with the Twins, he spent one season as the Blue Jays quality control coach. He also served as the Indians hitting coach for five seasons and the Rays hitting coach for one year.

Shelton managed in the Yankees minor league system for three seasons in the early 2000s.

Oct. 9, 3:03 PM:

The Mets are ramping up their interview process for the managerial job, and that will begin with some phone interviews. However, there are some in-person interviews already set in place. 

SNY's Andy Martino confirmed that Carlos Beltran will be getting one of those interviews, which many expected. Though it came out that Beltran didn't want to get into managing, he quickly debunked that claim saying "you'd have to listen." He currently works as a special advisor to Yankees GM Brian Cashman

Other than Beltran, Joe Girardi is another given in the in-person interview column. But Mike Bell, the younger brother of Reds manager David Bell, is also expected to get an in-person interview, says The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal. He currently works as the Diamondbacks minor league director, but has interviewed for the Rangers and Orioles' manager jobs last season.

The Mets got a clean pair of innings from Rick Porcello before ultimately falling to the Marlins 3-1 on Thursday night. >> Box Score

5 things to know from Thursday's game...

1) After pitching just one inning in his spring training debut, Rick Porcello pitched two scoreless innings on Thursday. After striking out Brian Anderson for the second out in the first inning, Porcello allowed back-to-back singles to Corey Dickerson and Jesus Aguilar, but he was able to get Garrett Cooper to ground into a force play to end the inning. Porcello then pitched a perfect second inning, forcing two ground-outs and striking out Ryan Lavarnway to end the inning.

After being scratched from Wednesday's Mets lineup due to additional cardiac screening, center fielder Brandon Nimmo has been cleared for baseball activities, per general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

Van Wagenen spoke with reporters in Jupiter, Fla. during the early innings of Thursday's game against the Miami Marlins, and while he wouldn't get into the specifics of the tests, he said that everything was strictly precautionary.

"Just wanted to follow up on the news from Brandon yesterday, make sure I give everybody the good report that Brandon is doing well. All the tests came back in a good fashion. He's been cleared for baseball activities, so he'll be resuming his work tomorrow back in Port St. Lucie and we're ready to get him back.

"We're always looking to be pre-cautious. We never want to put players in harm's way, and I think this was a perfect example of that."

Brandon Nimmo's late scratch from the Mets' lineup on Wednesday due to a cardiac screening caused many to raise an eyebrow, but the report that came out Thursday saying he had another cardiac-related appointment set up for Thursday was cause for concern. 

Well, Nimmo's wife, Chelsea Jane, wants everyone to calm down.

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario (Treated Image by SNY)

John Harper, SNY.tv | Twitter |

Amed Rosario's strong second half convinced the Mets to scrap any notion of experimenting with him in center field, but it hasn't quite convinced scouts of his long-term viability at shortstop -- especially with a couple of top prospects in the organization.

As such the 2020 season seems to loom as crucial for Rosario's future in Queens. 

After all, in Andres Gimenez and Ronny Mauricio, the Mets have two young shortstops ranked in the Top 100 prospects lists by MLBPipeline.com, Baseball America, and Keith Law/The Athletic. And Gimenez is getting close, likely to start the season in Triple-A.

Seth Lugo hit a small roadblock in his spring training development when he suffered a small fracture in his pinky toe after banging it on something in his hotel room. But, after just five days from the initial diagnosis, Lugo was already back to work -- and that hasn't stopped. 

According to Newsday's Tim Healey, Lugo completed some fielding drills on Thursday, and is set to throw a live batting practice session on Sunday. 

That's what the Mets want to see from Lugo, who is going to be a crucial part of their pitching staff this season, no matter where he's featured. Lugo mentioned over the weekend that the fracture doesn't affect the way he's been pitching.

Mets reliever Edwin Diaz

Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | Twitter |

It can be hard when watching meaningless baseball to not react strongly to a good or bad performance. Despite the outcome of the game meaning nothing and the fact that the players involved in that meaningless game are working on things, stifling fandom and not overreacting one way or the other is not natural.

That takes us to Edwin Diaz and what went down on Wednesday in Port St. Lucie.

Diaz, fresh off a disastrous 2019 season, made his spring training debut and the results of his one inning mirrored the innings he turned in on many occasions last season.

The Astros' electronic sign-stealing scandal rocked MLB right before the 2020 season, with the league's Jan. 13 investigative report revealing that Houston used a live-feed center-field camera in 2017 and at least part of '18.

As teams like the Mets and Yankees prepare for their return to the diamond in the spring, they naturally have a guard up with preventing sign stealing from runners on second base.

Breaking down examples on Wednesday's Baseball Night in New York, SNY's Anthony Recker and Todd Zeile explained to Doug Williams and Andy Martino how pitchers and catchers keep opposing teams guessing by mixing things up.

The Mets got a good start from Noah Syndergaard, but a shaky Edwin Diaz outing ultimately led to a 4-2 loss to the Houston Astros on Wednesday in Port. St. Lucie. >> Box Score

5 things to know from Wednesday's game...

1) Noah Syndergaard had exactly the kind of performance Mets fans were hoping to see. After an up-and-down 2019 campaign, Syndergaard pitched two scoreless innings in his 2020 spring debut. He allowed one hit and struck out two batters, showcasing that nasty slider that seemed to avoid him for large stretches of last season.

Noah Syndergaard got his first start on the mound in Port St. Lucie on Wednesday against the Astros, and there were two main focuses heading into it: his connection with Wilson Ramos and his slider.

Both were positives after the short, two-inning outing. 

Starting with Ramos, manager Luis Rojas said that Syndergaard and the Mets' top catcher would be working to improve their chemistry after last season when Syndergaard was open with management about not trusting him behind the plate. Ramos admitted that he was working on his framing this spring as well, one of the areas Syndergaard reportedly didn't like.

Edwin Diaz had an uneven spring training debut, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out one and walking none in his only inning of work while also flashing a swing-and-miss slider and hitting 98 mph with his fastball.

"I felt good out there," Diaz said after the game through the Mets' translator. "A little bit anxious because it was the first time being out there in a real game and facing real batters. But other than that I felt really good."

After allowing a ground ball single and run-scoring double to Aledmys Diaz to start his outing, Diaz struck out Kyle Tucker swinging with a down-and-in slider before inducing a fly out to right field. Diaz then allowed a run-scoring double down the line before ending his outing by getting a soft ground ball back to the mound.

Mets manager Luis Rojas said after Wednesday's game that he isn't concerned about Brandon Nimmo in the wake of a cardiac screening that resulted in his being scratched from the lineup. 

Rojas referred to the screening as "precautionary," according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, adding that he wasn't sure what caused the additional tests. 

The Mets said earlier Wednesday that Nimmo had been scratched in order to receive "additional cardiac screening."

One month away from the regular season with the March 26 game against the Nationals at Citi Field, the Mets' quest for an NL East Division crown -- and, ultimately, the NL pennant -- is fast approaching.

As the countdown to Opening Day continues, opening odds are out for the Mets and both pursuits, via BetOnline.ag.

The Mets are 11/4 to win the NL East and 8/1 to win the NL. They each rank third in their respective categories.

Hall-of-Famer Mike Piazza arrived at spring training on Wednesday and (among other things) spoke about the Mets ownership situation.

"These deals are complicated," Piazza said. "I think Mets fans -- rightly -- should be interested, obviously (in) the future of the team. The team had a very good second half last year. I was able to talk to Luis (Rojas) this morning. I think they're in good hands. I think it's a very difficult division."

When it comes to how the uncertainty might impact the players, Piazza didn't seem concerned.

Mets INF/OF J.D. Davis had an MRI on his injured left shoulder that did not reveal "a ton of inflammation" or "new structural damage," and will begin rehabbing on Wednesday, GM Brodie Van Wagenen said.

"It sounds like we're in a pretty good spot with it overall," Van Wagenen added, noting that the MRI did reveal what looked like an old labrum injury.

While Davis will begin rehabbing immediately, he will refrain from baseball activity for a week before being reevaluated.

Davis spoke roughly an hour after Van Wagenen, saying he was relieved that the damage revealed by the MRI was old.

New York City should expect some hardware to arrive in the next few months, as both Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom and Yankees new ace Gerrit Cole are the favorites to bring home the Cy Young awards in their respective leagues this season.

William Hill sportsbook has both deGrom and Cole as 3/1 favorites to win the award in 2020.

"DeGrom has won two Cy Youngs in a row and is in his prime, and Cole is coming off of one of the greatest pitching years of all time," said Nick Bogdanovich, William Hill's director of trading, according to The Post.

The Mets fell to the Detroit Tigers 9-6 on Tuesday afternoon in Lakeland, Fla., but the loss did not come without some fireworks.

As part of a four-run top of the sixth inning, the Mets launched a pair of home runs, including a two-run blast from Tim Tebow, his first hit of 2020 first spring.

Tebow's opposite-field home run was also his first extra-base hit with the Mets in four years of spring training appearances. Tebow certainly possesses a fair amount of power, as even though he didn't hit for a high average with Triple-A Syracuse last season, he did hit four home runs.

Check out the full highlights from Tuesday's game, including Michael Wacha's spring debut, and more …

The Mets were playing in Lakeland against the Tigers on Tuesday, but Jacob deGrom was still in Port St. Lucie putting in work on the mound.

DeGrom threw two simulated innings, and all went well for the Mets' ace as he threw to big league hitters like Brandon Nimmo and Amed Rosario. He said after the session that his fastball felt great, but his secondary pitches still needed some work.

"Through most of my camps, fastball command is good early on and it's just getting offspeed where I want it. So that's going to be the main work heading into Opening Day," he said.

All eyes may be on Edwin Diaz in spring training, as a return to dominance by the young closer is widely considered crucial to the Mets' hopes of winning the NL East. But is he really the key to bullpen success in 2020? 

Or is it Seth Lugo?

5 things to know from Tuesday's game...

1) Michael Wacha got his first start of the spring, and pitched well in his two innings on the rubber. He allowed one hit and two walks, but struck out two and didn't allow a run over that span. The radar gun had him topping out around 96 mph, which he said after the game is a "good sign."

Mets INF/OF J.D. Davis left Tuesday's spring training game against the Tigers in the fifth inning after diving for a ball at third base.

Afterward, Davis stayed down for a few minutes before getting up and departing the game.

Davis was evaluated after the game and initial tests said there was nothing wrong, but an MRI on Wednesday will confirm that.

The Mets are "internally discussing" the option of not going with a set five-man rotation when the season starts, according to The Post's Joel Sherman. In fact, the fifth starter may not even be a thing at all. 

One player gunning for that spot is Michael Wacha, who took the mound for his first spring training start Tuesday against the Tigers. He pitched well over his two innings of work, but the main question after his performance was about the report -- something he wasn't aware of and, frankly, didn't really care about. 

"I didn't read anything like that and they have mentioned anything like that," he said. "My focus right now is going out here today, doing what I can out there and competing. Then, control those five days in between my next start, get those mechanics where I need them to be, make those adjustments I wish I would've made out there going into this next one. But I just try not to worry too much about what others are saying."

When the offseason began, the thought of Yoenis Cespedes contributing to the 2020 Mets was a pipe dream. Then, he started hitting bombs. Then, his contract was restructured to incentivize him making it back on the field. Then, he started running.

It will be Michael Wacha getting the start as the Mets face Tigers in Lakeland, Fla. on Tuesday at 1:05 p.m.

While Wacha is thought to be in competition with Steven Matz for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation, it might not be that simple

Mets notes

Andres Gimenez, Jake Marisnick, and J.D. Davis are the highlights of the lineup with the Mets traveling to Lakeland. Notable is that Davis, who has been getting lots of reps at third base this spring, is back at the hot corner.

Barring injury, the Mets are expected to enter the season with Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, and Rick Porcello in their starting rotation. But the No. 5 spot might not be as simple as deciding between Steven Matz and Michael Wacha.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, among the options the Mets are "internally discussing" is not going with a set No. 5 starter at all.

Instead, the team would choose the best matchup each time it needed the fifth starter -- which will be most of the time once the first few weeks of the season are over.

Mets pitching coach Jeremy Hefner and Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake are certainly different than their predecessors, and not just because of age. 

Sure, Hefner and Blake's ages don't even combine to that of departed Mets' pitching coach Phil Regan, but both Regan and ex-Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild are baseball lifers. Blake has never been a pitching coach at any professional level, while Hefner was the Twins' assistant pitching coach in 2019.

But both are an indication that the role of a pitching coach has changed, and teams are looking for someone who can blend what a pitching coach needs to bring in-game with preparation and analysis, a background that both Hefner and Blake possess. 

Baseball Night in New York talked about the ever-evolving role of a pitching coach and the challenges that Blake and Hefner might face in their first seasons in the dugout.

"Wilson Ramos hit ball, ball go far" was the mantra for the Mets on Monday in their spring training win over the Nationals. 

Ramos smashed a pitch just foul during his first at-bat, and the ensuing pitch matched it, but this time stayed in play and flew over the left field fence. 

But his day wasn't done there. Ramos also hit himself a double, going 2-for-2 during his team's 2-1 victory.

Luis Rojas said he was happy with Monday's 2-1 win over the Nationals despite the fact that spring training isn't about results. 

"We know spring training is not about results, but it's good to see the guys shaking hands and all that," Rojas said after the game. "Looked like we were playing really good baseball, once again really good defense. ...Everybody moving around, everybody backing up in position, we turned a double play again, called a good game, pitched a good game. So we played really good baseball today."

Wilson Ramos got things started with a solo home run in the second inning to put the Mets up 1-0, and Rojas took notice, saying he likes what he's seeing from Ramos early.

The Mets took down their NL East-rival Nationals, 2-1, for their first spring training win on Monday.  >> Box Score

5 things to know from Monday's game...

1) Top pitching prospect David Peterson got the start for the Mets, and looked pretty good in his first spring outing. He let up just one single, but no runs. MLB.com's Anthony DiComo also pointed out that the radar gun had his fastball sitting around 93-94 mph, which is up from his previous seasons. That's a good sign for the lefty.

Mets pitching prospect David Peterson took the mound Monday afternoon for a spring training matchup with the Nationals, and put together a solid performance.

On the mound for 2.0 innings, Peterson allowed just one hit and zero runs, while also striking out two batters before a call to the bullpen was made to end his day.

"It was good." Peterson said on his first outing of spring training. "I felt really good on the mound physically and mentally. I thought Buffalo and I were on the same page and it felt good to get out there and compete again."

The following are insights, ideas and notes gathered from recent conversations with team sources, rival executives, reporters, front office assistants, and talent evaluators...


Based on conversations with team insiders, at this early point in the spring, it sounds to me like Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil will 100 percent be kicking off Luis Rojas' lineup in April.

After that, expect Pete Alonso and Michael Conforto and some flip-flopping between Wilson Ramos and Robinson Cano. Amed Rosario seems destine to hit eighth or maybe even ninth on certain occasions, while the J.D. Davis/Yoenis Cespedes situation will impact left field and the heart of the lineup in a way that can't be known yet.

Day 2 of live spring training action for the Mets ended in the form of Sunday's 3-3 tie with the Cardinals, but two performances highlighted New York's main takeaways from the draw against St. Louis.

Led by a performance on the mound and at the plate with an old and new player, sixth-year LHP Steven Matz and recently-acquired CF Jake Marisnick discussed their respective performances after they respectively flashed over the course of the afternoon at Clover Park in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Toeing the rubber for the first time since Sept. 28's 3-0 win over the Atlanta Braves to end his 2019 regular season, Matz got the start and was happy with how he performed overall.

J.D. Davis had a breakout 2019 season in his first year with the Mets, batting .307 with 22 home runs in 140 games. The Mets acquired him from the Houston Astros on Jan. 6, 2019 after he played just 66 games in two seasons with the team.

Davis spoke to SNY's Steve Gelbs on Sunday during the Mets' 3-3 tie with the St. Louis Cardinals about how he was a different person before coming to New York.

"Me, learning from how I was with the Astros, and my personality, I was kind of the quiet guy," Davis said. "I was a fly on the wall. I tried to blend in, not have any attention towards myself. Coming in here, I wasn't as happy as I was with the Astros. I wasn't really expressing myself. I remember just coming in and being free and loose, and just wanting to at least have a relationship with these guys. And these guys have the same kind of desire as well.

Jeurys Familia put all his offseason work to the test on Sunday, when he made his spring training debut against the Cardinals in the Mets' 3-3 tie in Port St. Lucie. 

Familia got the first two hitters he faced out, and after allowing a single and a walk, he got out of his one inning on the mound without allowing a run. Overall, it was a solid start to his spring, especially with his splitter looking to have that sharp bite back. 

"I was excited to be out there," he said through team translator Alan Surriel after his performance. "It's been awhile since I've been on a mound actually pitching in real game action, to be able to go out there and to throw and to see the results of my hard work this offseason. It felt good."

The Mets and Cardinals worked their way to a 3-3 draw after nine innings of baseball in Port St. Lucie on Sunday afternoon.  >> Box Score

5 things to know from Sunday's game...

1) Steven Matz made his spring debut, pitching in one inning that didn't start the way he wanted. Harrison Bader took a 1-0 fastball over the left field wall to give St. Louis a 1-0 lead. Matz discussed it after the game, saying he wanted to hit the glove side, but it stayed too much over the middle of the plate. Other than that, no damage came to the man battling to make the rotation in camp.

Steven Matz kicked off his 2020 campaign on Sunday, when he took the mound to start against the Cardinals in a spring training matchup in Port St. Lucie. And though it didn't go according to plan to begin, Matz came away happy with the results in the end. 

St. Louis' leadoff hitter Harrison Bader took Matz deep on the second pitch of the game, a middle-in fastball that he turned on to left field. But after that, he settled down and his stuff looked sharp as he finished his inning of work. 

"I'm actually really happy with it. I think my changeup was down, my curveballs were down, arm feels good," he said. "I think the one critique I have on myself is just glove-side fastball. That last out to [Matt] Wieters and the home run, I was trying to go inside to a righty. That's normally my bread and butter pitch. So that's the one thing, but other than that, I felt good with everything."

Marisnick led off the inning, and took Adam Wainwright deep to left center to tie the game at one.

He hit 10 home runs over 120 games in 2019 as a member of the Houston Astros. The Mets acquired him on Dec. 5 in exchange for porspects Blake Taylor and Kenedy Corona.
