According to ‘a source,’ the Mets have interviewed Kevin Morgan to be the team’s first base coach, reports Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Morgan has one big-league at bat with the Mets in 1997. Since then he has worked for the team in a variety of front office and minor league positions.
Most recently, he’s been a roving minor-league infield instructor, and helped to coordinate the team’s instructional league and extended Spring Training, while spending time working in camp on infield defense.
