Mets manager Terry Collins will resigned after the Mets' final game of the season.
New York Mets manager Terry Collins announced his resignation after the Mets' final game of the season, an 11-0 loss to the Phillies.
It's been a blast," Collins said. But it's time.
According to a report from The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, Collins will remain with the team and serve in a front-office role.
The Mets have slumped to a 70-92 record this season, thanks to a rash of injuries to its pitching staff and best hitter, outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.
In seven seasons with the Mets, Collins had two winning seasons and took the Mets to the World Series in 2015. The Mets lost that series in five games to the Kansas City Royals.
The job security for the 68-year-old Collins has been speculated since the Mets have been out of contention for the playoffs.
Newsday reported last week that Mets owner Fred Wilpon had repeatedly used his influence to protect Collins's job after many in the organization wanted him gone.
