According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Mets will introduce Mickey Callaway as their new manager in a press conference on Monday afternoon.
Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the press conference will take place at 4 ET on Monday. Callaway will reportedly receive a three-year contract with the Mets. The 42-year-old has served as the Indians' pitching coach for the last five seasons, with excellent results. The Mets built their team around pitching, but everything fell apart in 2017 due to a long list of injuries. Callaway will be tasked with getting things back on track as a first-time manager.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are offering their manager job to Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway.

The two sides are expected to finalize a three-year contract Sunday and officially announce it Monday. Previous reports had indicated that hitting coach Kevin Long and Mariners third base coach Manny Acta were the favorites for the job after a round of interviews, but obviously the Mets are going in a different direction. Callaway had also been a candidate for the Phillies' gig. He's been the Tribe's pitching coach for the last five seasons.
Oct 22 - 1:47 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that there are "strong indications" the Mets will pick Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway as their new manager.

Sherman has backed up a previous report from Newsday's Marc Carig that said Mets hitting coach Kevin Long and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing will not get the job, and he also adds that Mariners third base coach Manny Acta is out of the running. With Astros bench coach Alex Cora in line for the Red Sox' gig, that leaves Callaway as the last man standing. The Mets are expected to announce their decision Monday.
Oct 22 - 1:29 PM

Newsday's Marc Carig reports that Mets hitting coach Kevin Long and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing are "out of the running" for the Mets' manager job.

The news comes as a surprise, as multiple reports have had Long as the favorite to land the gig. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported recently that Mariners third base coach Manny Acta is "a legitimate possibility" for the job, and with the news on Long it's possible Acta might now be the new favorite. Sherman hears that the Mets are planning to announce their decision Monday. Astros bench coach Alex Cora and Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway are also known to have interviewed.
Oct 22 - 1:21 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Mets hitting coach Kevin Long "has been viewed as the favorite" for the team's manager job, but Mariners third base coach Manny Acta "has emerged as a legitimate possibility."

Astros bench coach Alex Cora, White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing and Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway have also interviewed for the gig, but Cora is expected to take the Red Sox' job and it sounds like McEwing and Callaway are unlikely to be picked by the Mets. Sherman says that the club could make a contract offer to a manager as soon as Friday and want to finalize a deal this weekend.
Oct 20 - 1:50 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Mets hitting coach Kevin Long is "regarded as the favorite" at this juncture for the team's managerial opening.

It's not a surprise since he's the only one who has interviewed so far. The process figures to be fluid, with Astros bench coach Alex Cora, White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing and former Nationals and Indians skipper Manny Acta all interviewing for the job this week. Long has been a hitting coach in the majors since 2007 with the Yankees and then the Mets and had some minor league managerial experience prior to that.
Oct 16 - 5:08 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that former Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus declined to be interviewed for the Mets' vacant manager job.

Heyman also says that former White Sox manager Robin Ventura -- who had been considered a likely candidate -- hasn't shown interest in the gig and isn't in the mix. Astros bench coach Alex Cora will interview with the Mets on Tuesday and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing will interview Wednesday. ESPN's Buster Olney also reports that former Nationals and Indians skipper Manny Acta will interview later this week. To this point, Mets hitting coach Kevin Long is the only one who has interviewed for the job.
Oct 16 - 4:57 PM

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets will likely interview Astros bench coach Alex Cora for their managerial vacancy on Monday or Tuesday.

The timing makes sense with the Astros in town to face the Yankees in the ALCS. Cora reportedly interviewed with the Red Sox over the weekend and is considered the club's top candidate for the job. White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing is expected to interview with the Mets on Wednesday, though he is also under consideration for the Tigers' job. Kevin Long, Robin Ventura, Chip Hale, Bob Geren, and Sandy Alomar, Jr. are among the other names who have been linked to the opening with the Mets.
Oct 16 - 11:44 AM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets plan to interview Kevin Long for their managerial opening "within the next few days."

Long, the Mets' current hitting coach, was called a potential frontrunner for the job on the same day Terry Collins resigned. Robin Ventura, Chip Hale, Joe McEwing, and Sandy Alomar Jr. are some of the other known candidates.
Oct 12 - 12:36 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Indians first base coach Sandy Alomar Jr. is getting "strong consideration" to be interviewed for the Mets' managerial vacancy.

Alomar Jr. was a catching instructor with the Mets from 2008-09 before being hired by the Indians before the 2010 season. He's served in a variety of roles in Cleveland, including briefly as an interim manager in 2012 after Manny Acta was fired. Alomar was reportedly a finalist for the Blue Jays' manager job when it went to John Farrell.
Oct 6 - 1:57 PM

Mets' manager Terry Collins officially resigned following Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Collins will remain with the organization, taking a role in the club's front office. The Mets went 551-583 in his seven seasons at the helm, capturing the National League pennant in 2015. Robin Ventura and Kevin Long are the current front runners to replace him.
Oct 1 - 11:34 PM

The Athletics' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mets manager Terry Collins will announce after Sunday's game that he's resigning and will take a front office role.

It's been one of the worst-kept secrets in baseball that Collins wouldn't be back in 2018, and it appears it will become official soon. The Mets went 551-582 in seven seasons under Collins, winning a National League pennant in 2015. Mike Puma of the New York Post reported over the weekend that former White Sox manager Robin Ventura and Mets hitting coach Kevin Long "stand out as early front runners" for the Mets' manager job.
Oct 1 - 3:54 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post writes that former White Sox manager Robin Ventura and Mets hitting coach Kevin Long "stand out as early front runners" for the Mets' manager job.

Puma adds the caveat that the search is expected to take "several weeks" and is "wide open," but it appears that Ventura and Long are early favorites. The White Sox went just 375-435 in five seasons under Ventura and didn't have a winning season after his first year, but Puma says that his "strong relationship" with owners Fred Wilpon and Jeff Wilpon is a benefit. Puma writes that general manager Sandy Alderson and Jeff Wilpon "are intrigued by the idea of promoting Long to manager, but Fred Wilpon may have to be sold on the idea."
Sep 30 - 7:51 PM

Adam Rubin of the New York Post reports that the Mets have already reached out to potential managerial candidates to replace Terry Collins.

In the worst kept secret in baseball, Collins is expected to be informed as early as Monday that his contract will not be renewed for 2018. Robin Ventura, Alex Cora and Kevin Long have already been identified as "early persons of interest" for the Mets.
Sep 30 - 9:46 AM

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Terry Collins is expected to be informed as early as next Monday that his contract won't be renewed for next season.

Previous reports have indicated the same thing, so it appears to be a foregone conclusion at this point. The Mets have had all sorts of injuries this season, so their poor season can't be blamed on Collins alone, but this could be the ideal time to start with a clean slate. According to Puma, Robin Ventura, Alex Cora and Kevin Long are "early persons of interest" as the club compiles a list of potential replacements. Bob Geren and Chip Hale could also be in the mix. The search should intensity soon.
