Wally Backman is expected to be invited back to a position within the Mets organization, Sandy Alderson told media on Monday, according to SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt.
According to Alderson, Backman will likely be back as the Triple-A manager in Las Vegas, though he might also be considered for a big-league coaching position if one opens up.

Can I make a suggestion, Sandy? If you’re going to hire Terry Collins back as manager, announce it now. This way, it kills all questions and speculation and peppering from fans and media about Backman to Collins, Collins to Backman, and so on. Why let this become a story, if it doesn’t have to be?
