Binghamton Mets manager Pedro Lopes has joined the Mets coaching staff for the remainder of the season.
Wally Backman will not join the team’s staff this month, according to ESPN New York.
It’s been reported that Backman may leave the Mets organization if the Mets re-sign Terry Collins. The Nationals may also consider bringing Backman in when Davey Johnson retires from coaching at the end of the season.
Lopez led the Double-A Mets to an 86-55 record, and a playoff appearance.
