According to ‘a source,’ the Mets have interviewed Kevin Morgan to be the team’s first base coach, reports Anthony DiComo of

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.


Matthew Cerrone: First of all, if the goal is to find someone who knows infield defense, from what I’ve heard, they’re going to be hard pressed to find any one better. That said, I understand the team intends to interview a handful of people to fill this position, and so, though Morgan reads like a good fit, I expect this to drag on a bit.
