ST. LOUIS – New York Metz scrawl fires striker Chile Davis and assistant striker Tom Slater on Monday night
The moves were made after a 6-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, which knocked the Mets down to 11-12.
New York is struggling badly with competitors reporting positions at the beginning of this season, a troubled place last year, when the popular Davis worked remotely due to fears of coronavirus.
Several successful strikers have slowed, including $ 341 million rookie Francisco Lindor, who has failed in his last 25 games and beats .163 overall. The team also lacked power in the record, a big surprise for the squad, which includes Pete Alonso, Michael Conforto and Dominic Smith.
Small League Coordinator Hugh Quattlebaum and Farm Director Kevin Howard will join the Big League coaching staff to replace Davis and Slater, respectively.
“It was difficult to make a decision,”
“We just felt that the players needed a different level of support and maybe some different skills brought into the combination.”
Scott said it was a decision for baseball operations and team president Sandy Alderson agreed.
“It’s not about recent results. It’s about the behind-the-scenes process,” Scott said. “It’s too early to overdo the small sample results.”
