The New York Mets have decided on a new manager after parting ways with Carlos Beltran, and they are going with an internal candidate.

The Mets have promoted Luis Rojas from quality control coach to manager, according to multiple reports. Rojas was among the candidates who interviewed for the job before Beltran got it back in the fall.

New York had also considered veteran candidates like Dusty Baker, but ultimately they decided to go with Rojas. Baker is also being considered for the Houston Astros’ managerial vacancy.

Rojas previously managed in the Mets’ minor league system and the Dominican Winter League. After managing the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies in 2017 and 2018, the Mets added him to their coaching staff last year as quality control coach.
