Adam Rubin of ESPN NewYork reports that Ken Oberkfell will be named Mets bench coach.
Oberkfell has managed the Mets’ AAA teams in their various locations for years, manages down in the Dominican Winter League and served as the Mets’ first base coach for a spell in 2008. He’s a company man who is now getting a longer ride in the majors, which he likely deserves. He’s also thought of as a cooler customer than Terry Collins is, so maybe he’ll provide some ying to Collins’ fiery yang.
