After parting ways with Carlos Beltran, the New York Mets did not wait long to hire a new manager. On Thursday the team hired Luis Rojas as the 23rd manager in team history. Rojas will be replacing Carlos Beltran, who parted ways with the team after being involved in the Houston Astros cheating scandal.
Last season under Mickey Callaway, the team finished with a record of 86-76; good enough to finish over .500 and 3rd in the National League East, but not good enough to make the playoffs. The team missed the playoffs for the 3rd season in a row.
With players like Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Michael Conforto, the team is hoping Rojas can take them to the next step in becoming a playoff team.
