Though the Mets will be shaking up their coaching staff under new manager Mickey Callaway, a few familiar faces will remain. Pat Roessler will stay on board and be promoted to hitting coach, industry sources confirmed. He will replace former hitting coach Kevin Long. After being passed over for the managerial opening, Long is not expected to remain in the organization, as Newsday first reported. Roessler, 57, served as the assistant hitting coach under Long, who has reportedly surfaced as a hitting coach candidate for both the Nationals and Yankees. Roessler and Long have ties dating back to their days working in the Yankees organization. Both joined the Mets before the 2015 season.
