Carlos Beltran fallout could affect new Mets bench coach

SAN DIEGO — Be it as the deputy to a future Hall of Fame manager or to a future Hall of Fame player just starting as manager, Hensley Meulens views the bench-coach job the same way. He’ll get to put that philosophy in play next season as he goes from one extreme to the other.

Meulens, the long-ago Yankees prospect who didn’t live up to the hype, will serve as the bench coach to new Mets manager Carlos Beltran in 2020 after working the same role under Bruce Bochy of the Giants in 2018 and 2019.
