iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- The New York Mets and general manager Sandy Alderson have agreed to a contract extension through the 2017 season, the team announced on Tuesday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are excited about the direction the team is headed and look forward to Sandy continuing his efforts to build the Mets into a postseason contender,” said Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon in a statement. “Sandy and his staff have built our minor league system into one of the best in baseball, and will continue to balance player development along with making key additions that will help us reach our goals.”
Alderson has been at the helm since Oct. 29, 2010. During that time, the Mets have failed to make the postseason.
“I deeply appreciate the opportunity to continue what we have started,” said Alderson in a statement. “There have been positives this season, but there is still a lot of work to do.”
The Mets also have announced that manager Terry Collins will return for the 2015 season.
