Mets manager Collins reportedly to retire after season
(TSX / STATS) -- The New York Mets expect manager Terry Collins to retire after this season, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
The Mets and Collins have not discussed an extension on his contract, which expires at the end of the 2016-17 season.
The Mets have had a disappointing season, but Collins said again this week that he has not decided on his future.
Collins, 68, is in his seventh season as the Mets manager. The team has a 546-578 record under Collins, and the Mets reached the postseason in two of his seasons.
The Mets lost the 2015 World Series to the Kansas City Royals in five games, and lost last year's National League wild-card game to the San Francisco Giants.
Expected to contend for a playoff spot this season, the Mets have struggled to a 65-87 record. Injuries, especially to the Mets' pitchers, have played a role in New York's poor season.
Overall, Collins has a record of 990-1,012 with the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Angels and Mets.
The Mets open their final homestand of the season on Friday with three games against the Washington Nationals and four games against the Atlanta Braves.
