The Mets interviewed Hensley Meulens for bench coach, according to a Wednesday report by Dan Martin and Ken Davidoff of The Post.
Meulens, 52, spent the past 10 years -- two as bench coach -- with the San Francisco Giants on 13-year manager Bruce Bochy's staff.
Bochy, 64, retired at the end of the 2019 season. The Giants replaced Bochy with former Philadelphia Phillies manager Gabe Kapler (2018-19), who was hired last Wednesday.
Meulens interviewed in November 2017 for the Yankees' managerial opening after New York fired Joe Girardi (2008-17), whom the Phillies hired Oct. 24. The Yankees' position went to Aaron Boone, who enters Year 3 on the job in 2020.
Before he got his coaching experience in Major League Baseball, Meulens' spent seven years from 2003-09 at the minor-league level. Meulens worked his way up through the Giants' organization, serving as the Triple-A affiliate's hitting coach in the Pacific Coast League before he became Bochy's hitting coach for 2010.
Meulens logged seven MLB seasons as a player, beginning with the Yankees throughout his first five years. He slashed .220/.288/.353 with 15 home runs and 53 RBI in 182 games, spending 1989-93 with the Yankees before returning for 1997-98 with the Montreal Expos and Arizona Diamondbacks.
