Since Terry Collins resigned in October 2017, the Mets have lacked consistency in the dugout. The team has gone through six managers in seven seasons, none of them lasting more than two years on the job. During that period, the shortest tenure of a Mets manager was 76 days.

Team officials hope that in Carlos Mendoza, they have found a more permanent solution from a nearby talent pool. The team officially named Mendoza, most recently the Yankees’ bench coach, as their manager on Monday with a three-year deal that includes a club option for a fourth season. He takes over for Buck Showalter, whom the club dismissed in October.

We are excited to begin this new chapter of Mets baseball,” Mets owners Steve and Alex Cohen said. “Carlos brings a wealth of experience to the Mets that includes more than a decade managing and coaching in the minors as well as serving as bench coach the last four years with our cross-town rivals. Carlos is full of energy, passion and it was easy to see he’ll have a great rapport with both our veteran and young players.”
