Hefner becomes Mets pitching coach, Meulens bench coach

NEW YORK (AP) — The Mets have hired Jeremy Hefner as pitching coach, Hensley Meulens as bench coach and Tony DeFrancesco as first base coach under new manager Carlos Beltrán.

The 33-year-old Hefner pitched for New York from 2012-13. He was a major league advance scout for Minnesota in 2017 and ’18, then was assistant pitching coach last season. Hefner replaces 82-year-old Phil Regan, who took over when Dave Eiland was fired on June 20.

Meulens, 52, replaces Jim Riggleman, who served as bench coach for manager Mickey Callaway last season. Meulens was San Francisco’s hitting coach from 2010-17, then was Bruce Bochy’s bench coach for the past two seasons.

Wishing DeFrancesco the best in this position- I have a soft spot for him after the champion years the River Cats had with him in the last decade.

The Mets have signed Michael Wacha to a 1-year deal to be the fifth starter. I guess the Steve Cohen dollars are not rolling in just yet.
