Mets name Tom Goodwin as their first base coach
He replaces Mookie Wilson, who was removed from the post this month and was offered an opportunity to remain with the club in another capacity.
Among the previously named new members of the Mets’ staff for 2012 are Tim Teufel, who managed the organization’s Class AAA team in Buffalo, as third-base coach; Ricky Bones, who was the pitching coach in Buffalo, as bullpen coach; and Bob Geren, the former manager of the Oakland Athletics, as bench coach.
Dave Hudgens, the hitting coach, and Dan Warthen, the pitching coach, were retained by the Mets.
