Mets managerial interviews have begun
The Mets supervisory interview procedure started in earnest at the start of this week, with a minimum of one interview occurring Monday and another set up for Tuesday, according to league sources.
One source stated that the preliminary interviews are lasting as long as 5 hours each.
The list of prospects is as SNY reported Friday: Houston bench coach Joe Espada, long time supervisor Dollar Showalter, Tampa Bay bench coach Matt Quatraro, Pittsburgh bench coach Don Kelly, and previous Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels supervisor Brad Ausmus.
Other names have actually shown up in internal discussions, so it’s possible that another interview or 2 will take place (although neither Curtis Granderson nor David Wright is anticipated to interview).
Mets owner Steve Cohen is not associated with the preliminary of interviews. He is handing over to GM Billy Eppler and his baseball personnel to determine and veterinarian prospects and perform initial interviews.
