Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Mets will interview former Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long on Wednesday for the same position with their club.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reported earlier this month that Long would receive consideration for the job, and it appears that he will indeed interview. The Yankees struggled offensively the last two seasons, but they had been terrific prior to that during Long's tenure.

The Mets confirmed Tuesday that Terry Collins will return as manager of the Mets in 2015.

Meanwhile, the Mets officially announced that general manager Sandy Alderson will receive a contract extension through 2017. Collins has yet to have a winning season during his tenure in New York, but he has done a respectable job with the talent afforded to him and deserves an opportunity to manage a team seemingly on the verge of contention.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets will announce an extension for general manager Sandy Alderson on Tuesday.

It was originally expected to be announced after the season, but the Mets are moving up the timetable, likely because news of the extension leaked on Monday. Alderson had an option on his contract for 2015, but the Mets will give him a new three-year deal which sets the stage for him to see his plan through. According to various reports, the Mets also plan to bring back manager Terry Collins for 2015.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are picking up their 2015 option on GM Sandy Alderson and "progressing toward" a contract extension.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says it'll be a three-year deal; now let's see if ownership allows him to spend some money. The Mets are headed to their fourth straight losing season under Alderson, but the club has developed a decent nucleus of players (especially on the pitching staff) and will push forward with the former A's and Padres executive at the helm. The Mets are also bringing back manager Terry Collins for the 2015 season.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Mets manager Terry Collins is expected to return in 2015.

The Mets are tracking toward their sixth straight losing season, but Collins can't be blamed for the lack of productive talent on the current active roster. With ace Matt Harvey due to return from Tommy John surgery and some younger players beginning to blossom, expectations will certainly be raised for the 2015 campaign. It will be the fifth season on the job for Collins.

The Mets have fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens.

It's a bit of an empty gesture, especially considering the lack of talent on the roster, but Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that he has been unsatisfied with the team's situational hitting and their performance at home compared to the road. Lamar Johnson, the team's minor league hitting coordinator, will replace Hudgens.
