Tim Teufel gets added to 2012 Coaching Staff, As Four Coaches will not be back

The New York Mets said Wednesday that four coaches won't return next season.

Bench coach Ken Oberkfell, third base coach Chip Hale, first base coach Mookie Wilson and bullpen coach Jon Debus will not be back, while hitting coach Dave Hudgens and pitching coach Dan Warthen will return to manager Terry Collins' staff for 2012.

Former Mets infielder Tim Teufel, who was managing at Triple-A Buffalo, will be the new third base coach and Ricky Bones will step in as bullpen coach.

Last week, the Mets exercised the 2013 contract option for Collins after he guided the team to a 77-85 record in his first season at the helm.

The Mets have missed the playoffs each of the last five years.

Mets News and Notes: Reyes, Santana, Teufel

Anthony DiComo of says, Jose Reyes could return to the Mets a bit sooner than expected.

Days after saying Reyes had little chance to return from the disabled list when eligible on Aug. 23, Mets manager Terry Collins now believes such a timetable may be realistic.

"It's conceivable," Collins said on Wednesday afternoon, when asked if Reyes could be activated next Tuesday.

That much depends entirely on how Reyes responds this Friday, when he will attempt to run for the first time since straining his left hamstring earlier this month.

Reyes has spent this week taking batting practice, fielding ground balls, and throwing and moving laterally in the field. But running at full speed represents a much more significant test.

The last time Reyes strained his left hamstring, he missed nearly three weeks with the injury. But both he and Collins have classified this most recent strain as not quite so serious.

"I know it wasn't as bad as the first one, and he said he's been feeling good and he's ready to go," said Collins, who spoke to Reyes earlier this week by phone. "He just said, 'I'm ready to get back on the field,' which was a good sign."

Santana Notes:

Johan Santana (recovery from left shoulder surgery) is at least a week away from returning to a mound, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters on Wednesday.

Though still not official, it is nearly certain that Santana will not return to the Majors this season.

Teufel Shuffle: 

The Tigers plan to promote farmhand Shawn Teufel to Triple-A in time to face his father, Tim Teufel, a member of the 1986 Mets and current manager of Triple-A Buffalo.

The younger Teufel, a left-handed pitcher, will start for Toledo on Thursday against the Bisons.

Video: Platoon might be solution at 2B

Daniel Murphy
Ted Berg of did a great piece on who has the upper hand in the second base competition. He interviewed Wally Backman and Tim Teufel, two former second basemen who ironically platooned together in '86.

Both Backman and Teufel think that it is going to be a platoon situation with Daniel Murphy getting most of the AB's because of more righties in the league. Backman thinks that Murphy can play everyday because of the work he has put in. Backman also said that Brad Emaus has natural mechanics at second base, especially when it comes to turning double plays.

Can you smell the Murphy/Emaus platoon?

Both openly admitted that Luis Castillo has to fight for the job, that it won't be just handed to him.

Backman, Teufel move up and find new homes

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, Wally Backman, a finalist for the Mets' managerial position that went to Terry Collins, is expected to be named manager of Double-A Binghamton, according to organization sources.

Backman, who skippered Class A Brooklyn last season, last managed at the Double-A level with Birmingham in the Chicago White Sox organization in 2002 and '03.

Tim Teufel, who managed Binghamton last season, is expected to succeed Ken Oberkfell as Triple-A Buffalo manager.

Mets have also made other staffing changes. The Triple-A staff also is expected to include Ricky Bones returning as pitching coach and Luis Natera serving as hitting coach. Natera was the Bisons' hitting coach during the first half of the 2009 season, before being sent to Binghamton for the remainder of that season.

Jack Voigt, who was Buffalo's hitting coach last season, is expected to assume Mookie Wilson's former role as minor league outfield and baserunning coordinator.

Oberkfell is joining the major league staff as bench coach, with Wilson returning to the Mets as first base coach.

Teufel becomes the Buffalo manager

With Ken Oberkfell expected to be named the bench coach for Terry Collins on the major league staff, Oberkfell's former position as Triple-A Buffalo manager is expected to go to '86 Met Tim Teufel.

Teufel managed Double-A Binghamton last season.

It is not yet clear whether Wally Backman would jump all the way to Binghamton or be assigned to Class A St. Lucie, but the Double-A assignment would be logical.

Ex-Mets catcher Mike DiFelice, who managed Class A Kingsport the past two seasons, was not retained by the organization. 2010 St. Lucie manager Edgar Alfonzo also is out. Alfonzo subsequently joined the Astros organization.

ESPN: Teufel NOT a candidate for manager

From ESPN:  

Sandy Alderson mentioned he may add one or two final candidates to the managerial interview mix, he apparently was not speaking about Tim Teufel. Multiple sources familiar with the process do not believe the former Mets infielder would be interviewed for the managerial position, even though he is thought of highly.

Teufel, 52, managed Double-A Binghamton this past season after spending the previous two seasons at the helm of Class A St. Lucie.

He played for the Mets from 1986-91, during an 11-year major league career.

Teufel could emerge as a candidate for the coaching staff, but that is for discussion down the road. He has existing relationships with two of the strongest candidates for manager --
Terry Collins (who presided over the minor leagues this past season) and ex-Met player/minor league manager Clint Hurdle.

I never thought he was in serious consideration for the job. He probably does not fit the description of a fiery manager. Anyway,  we can move on.......
