If you take a look at the Mets website coaches page, it’s pretty empty right now except for Terry Collins and bullpen catcher Dave Racaniello. That should change drastically this week. It has been widely reported that Sandy Alderson and Collins will name the rest of the coaching staff.
Expect Dan Warthen to return as pitching coach and Chip Hale to return at third base. Other than that, it’ll be a new group coaching the Mets next season. Here’s what the staff will likely look like:
Bench coach: Ken Oberkfell will be promoted from managing at Triple-A Buffalo
Third base: Hale will return
First base: Mookie Wilson after Moises Alou turned down the job
Pitching coach: Warthen will also return
