News: Mookie and Melvin join Mets

The Mets have named Mookie Wilson as the team’s minor league outfield and base running coordinator.

Wilson had been the team’s first base coach, and managed Single-A Brooklyn in 2005.

“It’s good to be back,” said Wilson, in a team press release.

“This is where I started and I’m anxious to do whatever I can for the young kids in our system.”

The team also announced that Bob Melvin will join the organization as a professional scout.
