The New York Mets, one of the richest teams in Major League Baseball (MLB), has parted ways with manager Buck Showalter and is reorganizing the team.
“It’s been an honor to serve New York twice,” Showalter said before the team’s season finale against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field in New York City on Sunday, “but I will not be returning as manager next season.”
Showalter, who signed a three-year contract with the Mets in December 2021, was named manager of the year last year after leading the Mets to the postseason as a wild card.
Showalter, who was previously named manager of the year with the New York Yankees in 1994, Texas Rangers in 2004 and Baltimore Orioles in 2014, became the first manager to win the award with four different teams.
But the Mets, who spent big last winter and became the highest-paid franchise on Opening Day this season, were eliminated from fall baseball early with a 74-88 record and a .457 winning percentage.
Eventually, Showalter took the blame for the poor performance and left the team without fulfilling the terms of his contract.
The Mets are in the midst of a major rebuild.
