With Carlos Beltran now officially the 22nd manager in Mets history, the next step is building out the first-time manager's staff.
SNY's Andy Martino has previously reported that former Mets manager Terry Collins would be Beltran's ideal bench coach.
On Saturday afternoon, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reported that while the Mets have yet to approach Collins about becoming a part of Beltran's staff, that doesn't mean they won't eventually. DiComo also notes that Collins is still on the Mets' payroll as a special assistant to GM Brodie Van Wagenen.
As the Mets manager from 2011-17, Collins led the team to a 551-583 record, highlighted by a trip to the World Series in October 2015.
Meanwhile, Mike Puma of the New York Post has reported that the Mets hope to retain hitting coach Chili Davis, whose contract with the team is up. Under Davis' tutelage, Pete Alonso had a record-breaking rookie season blasting 53 home runs, the most ever by a rookie in MLB history.
Puma has also reported that third base coach Gary DiSarcina is likely to return to the coaching staff, though it could be in a different role, while first base coach Glenn Sherlock is likely to leave the team.
