The Mets have their entire staff in place for the 2024 season.

The club announced its full player development staff and minor league coaches for the upcoming season Thursday. Andy Green will lead the player development efforts this season, transitioning from an on-field role to a front-office role for the first time. The former San Diego Padres manager and Chicago Cubs bench coach had always envisioned himself working in a front office and an interview for the managerial job that went to Carlos Mendoza turned into that opportunity.

Green has several holdovers on staff, including much of his front office staff and the managers of minor league affiliates. It’s a mix of familiar and new for the Mets as they continue to make changes to their player development system in order to meet their goal of becoming a “sustainable” contender.

Dick Scott will return as the manager of Triple-A Syracuse. Scott has been with the Mets for 11 seasons in several different roles, including player development, coaching development and as a bench coach for Terry Collins. Hitting coach Collin Hetlzer and bench J.P. Arencibia also returns to the Syracuse staff, with Grayson Crawford joining them as pitching coach. Crawford previously coached for the Yankees’ Double-A affiliate in Somerset, as well as coached Division I baseball.

Much of the Double-A Binghamton staff will return after guiding the team to the Eastern League Championship series last season. Manager Reid Bringac will be in the dugout for the third straight season and he’ll be joined by the same pitching, hitting and bench coaches, AJ Sager, Darin Everson and Mariano Duncan. Juan Loya replaces Jeremy Cologna as the Rumble Ponies’ development coach.

Gilbert Gomez has been promoted from the Low-A St. manager to the High-A Brooklyn manager. His bench coach in Port St. Lucie, Yucarybert De La Cruz, will replace him in the Low-A dugout.

Andrew Christie, Max Vogel-Freedman and Eric Jagers all received promotions. Christie is now the director of player development, Vogel-Freedman is the manager of player development and Jagers is the vice president of pitching. They will report to Green.
