Mickey Callaway's return to the Mets bench won't include a few of his lieutenants from last season.

Brodie Van Wagenen avoids speaking in absolutes, so when Tim Tebow's name was mentioned Tuesday, the new Mets general manager wasn't going to place a ceiling on the former Heisman Trophy victor.

New Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Tuesday that he expects Tebow to open next season at Triple-A Syracuse, where he should provide an attendance boost at the Mets' recently purchased top affiliate. The offensive struggles came as Yoenis Cespedes missed most of the season on the disabled list and Michael Conforto spent the first three months trying to rebound from shoulder surgery the previous year. Bones will stay with the organization according to Puma, but the Mets will have a new bullpen coach. While he transitioned in recent years to the Boston Red Sox and Mets as first base coach - with hopes of becoming a manager - Amaro told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal in September that he still has "a lot to offer" in the front office as well. (1st Base Coach) and Gary Disarcina (Bench Coach) is still to be decided.

And there were other factors at play that helped Democrats keep Republicans off the board for a fifth consecutive election. There is no question that Trump drives up voter turnout, with 2016 seeing a 6.5 per cent increase from 2012.

Van Wagenen said he has considered the possibility of dealing good players to help down the road. If calling him up to the bigs for a fun experience does not harm anyone else, who are we to say it shouldn't be done? Van Wagenen and Callaway will begin interviewing candidates next week. He knows what he's doing up in that front office.

Van Wagenen also met with 20-year-old shortstop prospect Andres Gimenez. "We have talked to [Ricco and Ricciardi] about various different roles and areas of focus. They are certainly important to me and that's why they are out here this week".
