ESPN analyst Eduardo Perez set to interview for Mets manager job
The New York Mets are adding to their list of interviewees for the team’s open managerial position.
The latest name linked to an interview is longtime player and current ESPN analyst Eduardo Perez, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.
Perez played 13 seasons in MLB, primarily as a reserve. Though he is known to many for his work on ESPN, he does have coaching experience, having managed in the Puerto Rican league and served on MLB staffs with the Miami Marlins and Houston Astros. He’s also the son of Hall of Famer Tony Perez.
Perez does not appear to be a frontrunner for the job, at least not right now. Joe Girardi has been mentioned as a candidate, and there’s another former player who clearly covets the job. The Mets are taking their time and being thorough, and there’s no real indication of who the preferred candidate is at this time.
