Brodie Van Wagenen Makes First Big Moves As GM

Despite all that, new Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen expects the former National Football League star will start the season at Triple-A.

Van Wagenen said he has considered the possibility of dealing good players to help down the road. "You've got to identify who complements yourself".

Former Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., who had been first-base coach, will become a front office adviser to the 44-year-old Van Wagenen, who quit as co-head of CAA Baseball's agency group and was hired October 30 to replace Sandy Alderson as GM. He knows what he's doing up in that front office.

Roessler was promoted to hitting coach from assistant when Kevin Long left for Washington after the 2017 season.

I would expect the New York Mets to soon announce the hiring of a new hitting coach, bench coach, and maybe even a new first base coach. Former agent, Brodie Van Wagenen will take over as the GM of the Mets after they parted ways with Sandy Alderson last season. "We're going to be open-minded to all scenarios". "They are certainly important to me and that's why they are out here this week".

The agent turned new GM suggested that Tebow - who hit six dingers in Double-A to go along with a.273 average and 103 strikeouts before a hand injury ended his year - could start the year at Triple-A and, if he plays well, could end up being a member of the big league squad.

Known more for his time as the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback of the Florida Gators, Tim Tebow has made his way through the minor leagues over the last two years with the New York Mets organization.

"At this point we want to identify where our greatest needs are and make sure we are putting our best people in that position", Van Wagenen said.
