It’s tough duty being a relief pitcher in the major leagues. You can be a hero one day, a bum the next. You’re only as good as your last appearance.

Seth Lugo was reminded of that Sunday night at Citi Field where his streak of 15 scoreless innings ended when he gave up a crucial run in the top of the ninth inning that proved to be enough for the Dodgers to escape with a 3-2 come-from-behind win.

It had to happen at some point. Lugo had been brilliant of late. He hadn’t allowed a run since Aug. 17 and had retired the Dodgers in order Saturday night to earn the win in the Mets 3-0 victory.

But after getting the final out of the eighth inning Sunday night, Lugo surrendered a run in the ninth when Kiké Hernandez hit a double off the wall with one out before Jedd Gyorko slashed a two-out hit to drive in the game-winning run.

Lugo took the loss, but don’t blame Lugo for the dire situation the Mets find themselves in four games out of the final wild-card spot with 13 games to play. He has been too good for that. An argument can be made the right-hander might be the most important contributor to keeping the Mets in the postseason race. Entering the game, he was 1-1 with five saves and a 1.86 ERA since the All-Star break and has emerged as Mickey Callaway’s go-to guy after high-priced closer Edwin Diaz lost his confidence and became unreliable.

But as his stock as a reliever continues to rise, Lugo made it clear he still thinks of himself as a starter.

“All my personal goals are starter-based,” Lugo said after Saturday’s game. “I’d like to win 20 games. I’ve still never had a nine-inning complete game. I had a seven-inning one in the minors in a doubleheader. All my goals are more starter-based.”

It seemed an odd time for Lugo to be reminding everybody he’d rather be doing something else than what he’s actually doing to help his team. His comments came after being questioned why he pitched out of a full wind-up Saturday night and his answer was something like, “I’m a starter. Gotta keep my wind-up.”

Though the timing might be odd, you can’t blame Lugo for taking the opportunity to remind the Mets that he’s a starter at heart. Taken in the 34th round of the 2011 draft, he completed his long-shot journey to the big leagues in 2016 where he made five starts and two relief appearances.

Lugo was in the starting rotation in 2017 where he was 7-5 with a 4.67 ERA, but all but five of his 54 appearances in 2018 came as a reliever. All 53 of his appearances this season have come as a reliever where he has emerged as one of the team’s most valuable players.

“He can be a multiple-inning reliever,” Callaway said. “He can be just a closer. He can be a starter. I think he could fulfill anything you want and whatever the team needs.”

Callaway said he doesn’t mind Lugo lobbying to be a starter even in the midst of a pennant race. With Sunday night’s loss, the Mets are four games behind the Cubs for the second wild-card spot.

“We understand his feelings,” Callaway said. “He views himself as a starter someday and he probably will be at some point. We feel like he could start. But at this moment our best team is with him in the bullpen. That could change or that could stay the same way.”

Money might also be a motivator. The top-10 highest-paid starters earn anywhere from $25 million to $34 million a year, while the top 10 closers earned from $6.5 million to $17 million. Lugo is making $591,875 on a one-year contract this season.

Maybe he just wants to escape being a winner one night and a loser the next.

Tyler Bashlor Jersey

Choose best cheap Tyler Bashlor New York Mets jersey online, womens youth youth Tyler Bashlor gear sale, buy Tyler Bashlor jersey including ash/black/camo/gray/green/grey/Gold/pink/white/ colour.The more you buy, the more gifts you give, the best quality, and the fastest logistics.

The Mets have promoted 25-year-old RHP Tyler Bashlor from Double-A Binghamton for Monday’s game against the Pirates, with Chris Flexen being sent down.

Bashlor, or, “Bash,” as they call him, has a 2.63 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 30 strikeouts in 24 innings across 20 outings this season. Since the Mets drafted him during the 11th round in 2013, he has a 3.29 lifetime ERA in 117 career minor-league games. He last pitched on Friday.

During this past spring training in St. Lucie, Bashlor quietly emerged as a young reliever worth keeping an eye on this summer. The kid works hard and is aggressive on the mound.

He clearly earned the attention of several veteran players and coaches when throwing live batting practice during a session in late February…

According to people that have watched him this season, while his fastball is consistently in the mid to upper 90s, he is still struggling to command his breaking ball. If this continues for him after his promotion, major-league batters will either walk or sit on his fastball, at which point he’ll be hit hard.

I can see a typical inning being shaky at first. However, if he can find his command, experts say his fastball is varied and quick enough that he can one day be a set-up guy…

In Bashlor, I simply saw a small guy with a lot of attitude, that throws loud and hard and has a pretty badass tattoo on his entire right arm. I’m no scout, and have no idea how he’ll perform on the big stage, but he certainly looks the part…

By the way, with one of the last pitches he tossed during the aforementioned spring training session, Bashlor lost the handle on a fastball and nearly hit Todd Frazier, who — without skipping a beat — slammed his bat to the ground and started marching angrily toward Bashlor and the mound…

Naturally, Frazier then dropped his bat, pointed and laughed. Bashlor, however, looked beyond nervous and struggled the rest of his session. He got through it, though.

As the session wrapped, Mickey Callaway made a point to walk out to the mound, put his arm on Bashlor’s shoulder and seemed to say something that reassured the young man.

Blake Taylor Jersey

The New York Mets made a handful of roster moves on Monday afternoon, as per a team announcement.

In addition to officially extending a $17.8 million qualifying offer to right-hander Zack Wheeler, the Mets also added left-hander Blake Taylor to the 40-man roster ahead of the 5 PM ET deadline to either do so or let the player leave via free agency, and claimed left-hander Stephen Gonsalves off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.

Taylor, 24, was the player to be named later in the 2014 trade that sent Ike Davis to Pittsburgh for Zack Thornton. Over 40 appearances (66.2 innings) between Advanced-A St. Lucie, Double-A Binghamton, and Triple-A Syracuse last season, the southpaw pitched to a 2.16 ERA with 74 strikeouts and 24 walks.

The Dana Point, California product allowed just two earned runs over seven appearances in the Arizona Fall League this season, striking out 11 and walking two while being named to the league’s All-Star team.

Gonsalves, 25, was the highest-ranked pitching prospect in the Twins’ organization and the ninth-ranked left-hander in the minor leagues as recently as January 2018, via MLB Pipeline.

He pitched to a 2.76 ERA with 120 strikeouts and 60 walks over 23 appearances (22 starts) between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Rochester in 2018 before making his MLB debut in August of that year (6.57 ERA,16 strikeouts, 22 walks over seven appearances; four starts).

Gonsalves dealt with a stress reaction in his left elbow/forearm early in the 2019 season but returned to action in late-August (4.15 ERA over eight appearances; six starts).

We’ll keep you posted with more information as it becomes available.

Are we that easy? If the records are rigged why take them seriously?

Perhaps the only reason to watch Saturday’s Braves-Mets game on Fox was to see if Pete Alonso would break the rookie record with his 53rd home run. Fox had the exclusive rights to do whatever it pleased with the game.

So when Alonso hit No. 53, Fox already had chosen to divide our attention by having Braves pitcher Dallas Keuchel on a dugout microphone and camera in another indiscriminate look-what-we-can-do.

But anything worth doing now seems to be worth overdoing — until it carries the odor of on-orders rot.

We don’t get it. Why would we?

Additionally, how can we objectively reconcile Alonso’s 53 home runs as legit when they were hit throughout a season during which MLB so obviously had baseball played with balls treated and inoculated by aerospace engineers or Titleist?

Often this season, Mets telecasts contained the well-aimed sarcastic skepticism of Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez decrying the new, long-range baseballs as ruinous farce that has badly diminished home runs as special achievement.

Pete Alonso completely enjoyed this moment

They knew that we knew that we were being suckered in what quickly was recognized as MLB again not realizing that it was master of its own greed-enriched, foresight-free folly.

Yet every time the SNY crew witnessed Alonso hit a homer, they trumpeted their excitement at his extraordinary and eventually unprecedented long-ball achievements.

So from a season swollen with smashed home run and strikeout records, which was it: legit or artificial? After all, one-third of Alonso’s 156 hits were HRs, while he struck out 184 times.

This postseason already wears the scars of a regular season that further replaced practical, well-schooled baseball with home run or strikeout two-card poker.

Wednesday, through six innings against the Athletics, the Rays had six hits, four of them home runs by the scarcely known, but had struck out nine times. The 5-1 game produced 24 strikeouts against 10 mostly scarcely known pitchers.

For MLB to return to baseballs with which to play genuine baseball would be an admission that this season’s version was fixed and that, again, smashed records were achieved by bogus means — juiced balls instead of juiced players. Whatever it took to reprise the cash flow of the anabolic slugger era.

Meanwhile, latter-day delusional managing persists. Last season, the Brewers in large part lost the NLCS to the Dodgers because of Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell’s insistence on replacing effective relievers to find the one who would be crushed.

Tuesday, in the wild-card game versus the Nationals, the Brewers lost a late 3-1 lead — and the game — because Counsell did it again.

Yet he only did what most managers now do — manage too much, as if all relievers will be in top form every game and in consecutive, designated innings.

There’s plenty more where those came from — the postseason has only begun.
Missing the target with pointless overexplaining

We’d seen the play hundreds of times — a long, slightly underthrown, incomplete sideline pass. Self-evident, no explanation needed.

These days? Fat chance. Thus Saturday on Fox, that pass thrown by Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts toward wide receiver Charleston Rambo against Texas Tech was followed by analyst Joel Klatt’s overview of the underthrow:
Enlarge Image
Joel KlattJoel KlattGetty Images

“That’s the freedom, I think, of, you know, going out there to try to make plays. Here, he doesn’t quite lead Rambo far enough and it allows [defensive back] Demarcus Fields, 23, to get back into the play, because when Rambo initially took off on account of the scramble rules … the scramble rules are this:

“If you’re a wide receiver and the quarterback breaks the pocket toward you, turn and run deep, straight down the field.

“That’s what Rambo did and he was initially wide open, Gus [Johnson], but Hurts didn’t get enough on that ball. Rambo had to slow up, upfield, to knock it away.”

Not only did Klatt needlessly confuse the issue, his take wasn’t worth even one of the 100-plus words he applied to it.

But that’s how it’s now done, no one in charge to demand, suggest or know better. And so we sit and holler, “Shut up, already!”

Saturday, at halftime of USC-Washington, Fox sat five experts on its quick-hits and highlights studio show, thus ensuring not one of the five could be distinguished as worth hearing. Expensive, worthless, ridiculous and now standard.

Booger McFarland, before ESPN decided to jam him into that beyond absurd one-man sideline trolley during “Monday Night Football,” wasn’t half bad as an ESPN studio analyst. And though ESPN made him an easy, large and slowly moving target last season, he’s not bad as Jason Witten’s inside-the-booth replacement. He’s certainly an improvement on hired-on-a-wish Witten.

McFarland must work on making short stories short, get in and out before he becomes his own echo, but he often demonstrates the strength of CBS’ Gary Danielson in that, prior to snaps, he recognizes then applies the circumstances to wisely suggest where the play will be headed.

Besides, given what ESPN did to him last season, he deserves a mulligan.

By the way, the Booger McFarland Name Of The Week is awarded to Arkansas linebacker Bumper Pool. Yes, his real name is Bumper James Morris Pool. No relation to Parcheesi Board or Grand Theft Otto.
Personal foul for needless bad rule

The NFL makes more rules than sense. Sunday, the Patriots were up 16-10 in the fourth quarter when Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen was knocked senseless and out the rest of the game by a vicious, top-speed helmet to the head from defensive back Jonathan Jones. As CBS’ Dan Fouts noted, Jones made no attempt to tackle Allen.

But the personal foul against Jones was wiped out by a holding call versus the Bills, thus the inexcusably brutal hit that eliminated Allen from the game never happened as a result of “offsetting penalties,” as if they were equal, a wash.

How much is the co-pay to treat Big Ten Fever? As of last week, Rutgers owes Chris Ash $8 million — much of it taxpayer and student tuition money — to no longer coach its chronically bad football team.

As Alice Kramden said when her husband told her that his election as Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler comes with free burial in the Raccoon Lodge Cemetery in Bismarck, North Dakota, “I’m so excited, Ralph, I don’t know whether to live or die.”

By the way, at 45-0 on Saturday, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh instructed his backup QB to throw a long fourth-quarter pass into the end zone to make it 52-0 over Rutgers. On BTN, Kevin Kugler and Matt Millen whistled past it.

On October 30, 2019, Ron Taylor was quoted in SHRM regarding common reasons why businesses layoff employees. According to the article, the trade war between the United States and China, plus the length of time that has passed since the last recession, have CEOs and HR leaders wondering when the next recession will be. However, even if the economy is strong, layoffs occur more often than one might think.

Regardless of whether a recession is imminent, employers need to be ready for the possibility of changed circumstances or a repositioning in their business that necessitates a reduction in force (RIF). According to Taylor, common reasons for a RIF include:

A need or desire to restructure. An employer may choose to eliminate duplicative positions following a merger or acquisition, or realign functions to achieve efficiencies.
To reduce costs. A company might lay off workers in reaction to reduced demand for a product or to cut labor costs.
To eliminate a function. Employers could outsource a function that the company can no longer perform efficiently, or cease a function made unprofitable by competition or obsolete by technological advances.
To relocate. Relocation of operations to a new site, city, state, or country may result in layoffs in the old location.

Joe Torre is Major League Baseball’s Chief Baseball Officer, overseeing areas that include Major League Operations, On-Field Operations, On-Field Discipline and Umpiring.

Appointed to his role by Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig on February 26, 2011, Torre is the Office of the Commissioner’s primary liaison to the general managers and field managers of the 30 Major League Clubs and the Major League Umpires regarding all baseball and on-field matters. Since December 2009, he has served on Commissioner Selig’s Special Committee for On-Field Matters. He also was a key part of the sub-committee on the expansion of instant replay for the 2014 season.

Torre is the Chairman of the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation, which he and his wife, Ali, launched in 2002. The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation’s mission is to develop educational programs that will end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. Since its inception, the Foundation has educated thousands of students, parents, teachers and school faculty about the devastating effects of domestic violence. Currently reaching children in nine schools and two community centers in New York and New Jersey, Margaret’s Place, a tribute to Joe’s mother, Margaret, provides middle and high school students with a “safe room,” in which they can talk to each other and to a professional counselor trained in domestic violence intervention and prevention about violence-related issues. In 2010, Torre was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the National Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women.

On December 9, 2013, the National Baseball Hall of Fame announced that its Expansion Era Committee had unanimously elected Torre as a part of its Class of 2014 inductees. Torre was officially inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday, July 27 in Cooperstown, New York.

In the fall of 2010, Torre concluded his third and final season as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, whom he led to the National League Championship Series in 2008 and 2009. Previously, he spent 12 seasons as manager of the New York Yankees (1996-2007), guiding them to the Postseason every year, including six World Series appearances and four World Championships (1996, 1998-2000). Torre made his managerial debut with the New York Mets on May 31, 1977, becoming the first player-manager in the majors since 1959. He managed the Mets until 1981 and the Atlanta Braves from 1982-84. After spending nearly six seasons as a television broadcaster for the California Angels, Torre managed the St. Louis Cardinals from 1990-95. Overall, Torre led Major League teams as a manager across 29 seasons. He also led Team USA in the 2013 World Baseball Classic. Torre ranks fifth all-time in managerial wins with 2,326. In 1982 and 1998, he was named Manager of the Year by the Associated Press. In 1996 and 1998, the Baseball Writers Association of America named him American League Manager of the Year and, in 1996, The Sporting News named him Sportsman of the Year. He won ESPN’s ESPY Award for Best Manager/Coach of the Year in 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2001.

During his 18-year playing career (first/third baseman, catcher) with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, Cardinals and Mets, Torre compiled a lifetime .297 batting average, had 2,342 hits, 252 home runs and 1,185 RBI, and hit over .300 five times. He was a nine-time All-Star and the National League’s 1971 Most Valuable Player while a member of the Cardinals, batting .363 with 230 hits, 24 home runs and a league-leading 137 RBI.

In April 2011, Torre was honored at the Ellis Island Family Heritage Awards, which celebrate exemplary Ellis Island/Port of New York immigrants or their descendants who have made a major contribution to the American experience. Joe’s mother, Margaret, emigrated from Salerno, Italy through Ellis Island in 1911.

Torre is the co-author of three books: The Yankee Years (Doubleday 2009); Joe Torre’s Ground Rules for Winners: 12 Keys to Managing Team Players, Tough Bosses, Setbacks and Success (Hyperion 1999); and Chasing the Dream: My Lifelong Journey to the World Series (Bantam 1997, 1998). The Hall of Famer was born on July 18, 1940 in Brooklyn, New York. He, Ali and their daughter, Andrea, currently live in New York. His three adult children are Michael, Cristina and Lauren.

Gil Hodges Jersey

At first base or in the manager’s office, Gil Hodges made the impossible seem possible during 27 seasons in the big leagues.

Today, he stands on the precipice of Cooperstown.

Hodges, who played for the Dodgers and the Mets for 18 big league seasons before managing the Senators and Mets for nine years prior to his death at the age of 47, is one of 10 finalists on this year’s Golden Era ballot that will be considered by the committee on managers, umpires, executives and long-retired players at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The 16-person committee will vote at baseball’s Winter Meetings in San Diego, Calif., and the results of the vote will be announced Dec. 8.

The 10 candidates on the Golden Era Committee ballot are: Dick Allen, Ken Boyer, Bob Howsam, Jim Kaat, Minnie Minoso, Tony Oliva, Billy Pierce, Luis Tiant, Maury Wills and Hodges. Any candidate who is named on at least 75 percent of all ballots cast will be inducted in the Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2015.

The Golden Era Committee consists of Hall of Famers Jim Bunning, Rod Carew, Pat Gillick, Fergie Jenkins, Al Kaline, Joe Morgan, Ozzie Smith and Don Sutton; baseball executives Jim Frey, David Glass, Roland Hemond, and Bob Watson; and veteran media members Steve Hirdt, Dick Kaegel, Phil Pepe and Tracy Ringolsby.

Born April 4, 1924 in Princeton, Ind., Gilbert Raymond Hodges grew up the son of a coal miner. Along with his older brother Bob, “Bud Hodge” – as Gil was known – excelled at baseball from an early age in his hometown of Petersburg, Ind. He enrolled at St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind., after high school, and in 1943 was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers. That summer, Hodges appeared in one game as a third baseman with Brooklyn before he was drafted into the Marines for service in World War II.

After serving 29 months in the Pacific, Hodges was discharged and reported to the Dodgers at a new position: Catcher. But with future Hall of Famer Roy Campanella on the horizon, Dodgers manager Leo Durocher moved the athletic Hodges to first base.

By 1949, Hodges was entrenched there after hitting 23 home runs and driving in 115 runs en route to the first of eight All-Star Game selections. Defensively, Hodges’ huge hands made his transition to first base seem seamless.

“I don’t know why he ever wears a first baseman’s glove,” said teammate Pee Wee Reese in reference to Hodges’ defensive skills. “He sure doesn’t need one.”

From 1949-57, Hodges averaged 32 home runs and 108 RBI per season. During those seasons, the Dodgers won five National League pennants and the 1955 World Series title. His peak as a power hitter came on Aug. 31, 1950, when Hodges became just the second modern-era National League player to hit four home runs in one game.

Hodges moved with the Dodgers to Los Angeles in 1958, and in 1959 he hit 25 home runs and drove in 80 runs in just 124 games to help LA win its first National League pennant. Hodges hit .391 in the World Series against the White Sox, leading the Dodgers to their second Fall Classic title in five years.

“It was a person like Hodges who made me feel at ease,” said Dodgers manager Walter Alston, who was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1983. “He never gave me any trouble and he was as great a man off the field as he was on it.”

Hodges wound down his playing career as a part-timer with the Dodgers in 1960-61 and the Mets from 1962-63. In the latter year, the Senators tabbed Hodges as their manager, and he stayed with Washington through the 1967 season.

The next year, Hodges took over the Mets, who had never won more than more than 66 games in a season. By 1969, the Miracle Mets were World Champions.

“Everybody I’ve talked to says he’s the guy who made the difference between being World Champions and a second-rate ballclub,” said outfielder Cleon Jones, who caught the final out – a fly ball to left field – of the 1969 World Series against the Orioles. “We would have been real happy to finish second. But he wasn’t satisfied with that.”

Hodges managed the Mets through the 1971 season, but was felled by a heart attack on April 2, 1972, as he left a Florida golf course following a round of 27 holes. Hodges, who had first suffered a heart attack in 1968, died two days short of his 48th birthday.

As a player, Hodges finished with 370 homers, 1,274 RBI and a .273 batting average. He finished in the top 20 of the NL Most Valuable Player voting eight times and won three Gold Glove Awards at first base – despite the fact that the award was not created until 1957.

As a manager, Hodges was 660-753 in nine seasons, including 100 regular season wins and the World Series title with the 1969 Mets.

“He expected the consummate professional attitude and approach every day,” said Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver, who came of age as a hurler under Hodges’ tutelage with the Mets. “We’re not 100 percent every day. Sometimes, you’re only 80 percent. But his attitude was, if you’re at 80 percent, give me 100 percent of that 80 percent. That’s what he got.”

Former Mets pitcher and Cubs general manager Ed Lynch was named Ducks pitching coach on Tuesday, the team announced.

Lynch and new Ducks manager Wally Backman were teammates for seven seasons with the Mets in the 1980s. Lynch, who was traded to the Cubs in the middle of the 1986 season, was 47-54 with a 4.00 ERA in 248 games, including 119 starts, in his career. He made 98 starts and won 38 games with the Mets.

Lynch, 62, was hired as Cubs general manager in 1994 and remained in that role until 2000. Lynch also has been director of player development for the Padres and special assistant to the GM for the Mets and Cubs. Most recently, Lynch was a scout for the Blue Jays from 2010 to 2015.

“I’m excited to join the Ducks,” Lynch said in a statement. “The Atlantic League product is one I am very attracted to as it places winning as a top priority. Combine that with a high level of play, great product for fans, a fantastic showcase for players, and it’s very easy to see why the league has had such great success.”

The Ducks also announced that Lew Ford would be returning as hitting coach. Ford will be in his 10th season as a member of the Ducks and sixth in a player/coach role. Ford was the team’s hitting coach in 2014 and 2018, and was bench coach from 2015 to 2017. Ford, 42, an outfielder and designated hitter, is the franchise’s all-time leading hitter with a .322 batting average.

Wally Backman Jersey

Former Mets second-baseman Wally Backman was arrested on Long Island for allegedly shoving his girlfriend into a wall Friday morning and stopping her from calling cops, officials said.

Backman, who was part of the 1986 World Series champion Mets and currently manages the Long Island Ducks minor-league team, was charged with harassment and criminal mischief, police said.

The woman claimed Backman pushed her into a wall and twisted her hand at her Riverhead home, court officials confirmed. He also allegedly grabbed her cellphone trying to prevent her from calling police. The woman suffered a cut that required medical attention.

Backman, 59, was released without bail following his arraignment in Riverhead court. He’s due back in court Sept. 17.

His rap sheet includes a 2001 bust for domestic abuse involving his second wife and her pal and drunken driving a year earlier, according to prior reports. In those cases, he was ordered to complete courses in alcohol counseling and anger management.

His first wife reportedly filed a restraining order against him in 1995, claiming he hit her and threatened to do it again.

Backman’s criminal and legal woes — including filing for bankruptcy in 2003 — cost him a gig as manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks just four days ­after his hiring in 2004.

The team claimed Backman never disclosed his checkered past — and said it learned of his record only after reading news reports. His two-year contract was worth $1 million.

After Arizona ditched him, Backman, who played with the Mets from 1980 to 1988 during a 14-year major-league career, spent years managing in the minors. From 2010 to 2016, he managed Mets-affiliated teams, including the Brooklyn Cyclones and Las Vegas, where he was named Pacific Coast League manager of the year in 2014.

Backman was canned from Las Vegas amid his rocky relationship with then-Mets general manager Sandy Alderson. Backman has maintained he resigned.

Backman also lost out on the Mets’ managing job in 2011 to Terry Collins and was passed over for other major-league coaching jobs with the Mets.

The Ducks opened a home series against the Somerset Patriots Friday night with Backman in the dugout.

“We are aware of the August 30 alleged incident involving manager Wally Backman,” the Ducks said in a statement. “We have spoken with Wally and understand he categorically denies all charges against him. Wally will continue as manager and neither he nor the Long Island Ducks will comment further on this pending legal matter.”

Backman, who didn’t return a message seeking comment, is not the only 1986 Met who has been in trouble recently.

Last month, he weighed in on Dwight Gooden’s arrest for alleged cocaine possession and DUI. “It’s almost like you — I don’t know if grow up is the right word,” Backman told The Post at the time. “It becomes a sense that things have got to change.”

The Braves have acquired left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins from the Athletics, per a team announcement on Sunday. The A’s will get cash considerations or a player to be named later in the deal.

Blevins, 35, inked a minor-league contract with Oakland at the outset of spring training, with a potential $1.5 million salary upon promotion to the majors. Following a disappointing show in camp, however, he was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas and pitched to a 1.69 ERA after issuing nine hits, two runs, four walks, and 16 strikeouts through his first 10 2/3 innings.

Blevins attributed much of his success to a newfound ability to locate his fastball and curveball, which the Braves hope will continue to hold true throughout the remainder of his 2019 campaign — especially given their bullpen’s second-worst ranking in the majors this month. He’ll also help fill in the gaps left by fellow lefty relievers Jesse Biddle and Jonny Venters, both of whom were recently sidelined with a right thigh contusion and right calf strain, respectively.

In corresponding moves, rookie reliever Wes Parsons was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett, while Arodys Vizcaíno (right shoulder surgery) was shifted to the 60-day injured list to clear a roster spot for Blevins. Parsons, 26, struggled to find his footing in his first 12 appearances with Atlanta, surrendering six runs on seven hits and eight walks and striking out 10 of 43 batters faced.
