Managerial candidates who are receiving third-round interviews with the New York Mets have reportedly been revealed.
The search continues for someone to fill the New York Mets vacant managerial position, as third-round interviews are set to take place this week. According to Andy Martino of SNY, candidates who’ve received a third interview have been revealed.
Unfortunately, this possibly-incomplete list of names doesn’t include Joe Girardi. The former New York Yankees manager was a candidate from the beginning, however, recently agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Martino writes, “The Mets will hold a third round of managerial interviews this week, with Eduardo Pérez, Tim Bogar and Carlos Beltrán among those getting another callback, according to multiple major league sources.
“Those are not the only candidates who are coming back for the third round.
“Luis Rojas is not believed to be in the mix any longer.”
Third-round interviews may also include Milwaukee Brewers bench coach Pat Murphy. The veteran coach was revealed to be a “mystery” candidate, but not the “bombshell” candidate that was originally reported about. It’s still unclear who the “bombshell” candidate could be.
The Mets have yet to determine when exactly they’ll make the decision on their new manager.
The organization began this search after they fired Mickey Callaway earlier this month. Callaway spent two years as the Mets manager and failed to see the postseason in either campaign. Since the Mets decided to part ways with Callaway, the Los Angeles Angels have hired him to be their new pitching coach.
