The Mets on Friday announced Buck Showalter’s coaching staff for 2022.
Longtime Showalter aide Glenn Sherlock was named bench coach.
Eric Chavez was added as hitting coach after getting hired earlier this offseason by the Yankees as an assistant hitting coach. Chavez made the switch for a promotion with the Yankees’ blessing.
The rest of the new coaches: Wayne Kirby (first base), Joey Cora (third base), Craig Bjornson (bullpen) and Jeremy Barnes (assistant hitting).
Pitching coach Jeremy Hefner is the only holdover from former manager Luis Rojas’ staff. The Mets did not hire an assistant pitching coach after having one last season.
