Mets fire hitting coach Roessler, bullpen coach Bones

Zach Britton Craig Kimbrel and David Robertson

Brodie Van Wagenen's first official act as the New York Mets' new General Manager was to make some changes to the coaching staff.

With these announcements, the Mets' new hire has seemed to dive head first into his General Manager duties.

It's also worth noting that Van Wagenen noted that Tebow is on "a real mission to play in the big leagues next year", and that when asked if that meant he'd play in the big leagues in 2019, Van Wagenen did not rule it out.

Amaro, the former Phillies GM, has a relationship with Van Wagenen based on their shared Stanford roots and is viewed as a front-office asset who can assist with personnel decisions. He knows what he's doing up in that front office.

The Mets regressed offensively after Roessler replaced the departing Kevin Long in 2018.

I would expect the New York Mets to soon announce the hiring of a new hitting coach, bench coach, and maybe even a new first base coach. Van Wagenen did not specify if all three had chose to stay with the Mets long term.

"We've talked to those guys about various different roles and areas of focus, and hopefully we can get more definition as it goes forward, " he said. "They are certainly important to me and that's why they are out here this week".

Van Wagenen attended the Arizona Fall League All-Star Game last weekend, met with player development staff and scouts, and also had dinner with Mets prospect Peter Alonso, who homered in the game on a 103 miles per hour pitch from Toronto's Nate Pearson. "You're trying to build a winning culture, and you're going to tell me that you're going to put Tim Tebow on your major-league roster?"

Although Tebow's strikeout numbers are concerning - 103 times in 84 games last year and 126 times in 126 games in 2017 - the 31-year-old is an elite athlete with a power arm as an outfielder.
