Dave LaRoche & Tom Gamboa (c) Pat Sanchez

In a statement to Brooklyn Baseball Banter, Pitching Coach Dave LaRoche told Brooklyn Baseball Banter he plans on going back to retirement & Manager Tom Gamoba said he is unsure what the future holds.

Dave LaRoche began with the Cyclones in 2014 as the Interim Pitching Coach, filling in for Tom Signore. He informed Brooklyn Baseball Banter after 2014 he was retiring, but Signore did not fully recover and had to sit out this season.

Manager Tom Gamboa said to Brooklyn Baseball Banter he feels he has maybe another season left in him before going back to retirement as well. The Mets took Gamboa out of retirement in 2014 after Rich Donnelly left. Gamboa has amassed a record of 75-77 (.493) in his 2 years as Manager.

Hitting Coach Yunir Garcia & Coach Edgardo Alfonzo were unavailable for comments. It is highly likely both will remain with the Mets organization next season, especially with Alfonzo as a Club Ambassador.
