As Luis Rojas takes over as the new Mets manager, the team is currently seeking a replacement for his old role as quality control coach, SNY's Andy Martino pointed out on Tuesday.
Rojas served as the Mets' quality control coach in 2019. The role was created to be the channel between the front office and the coaching staff regarding issues like analytics, game prep and overall team strategy. Serving in that role was a main reason why GM Brodie Van Wagenen and the rest of the organization was comfortable in promoting Rojas.
It's unknown at the moment who the Mets could be targeting for the position, but the search is underway.
Also, Jim Kelly, who was serving as a pro scout, will be going back to replay coordinator on the baseball operations side of things.
There are two weeks until pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie to officially kick off the new season, so the Mets could be looking to fill every team role before that Feb. 12 start date.
