METS RELIEVE CHILI DAVIS AND TOM SLATER OF THEIR DUTIES

HUGH QUATTLEBAUM & KEVIN HOWARD TO JOIN COACHING STAFF

 

FLUSHING, N.Y., May 3, 2021 – The New York Mets have announced tonight that the club has relieved hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Tom Slater of their duties, effective immediately.

Quattlebaum was the Mariners’ minor league hitting coordinator in 2018-2019 and was the assistant hitting coach with the Major League team during 2020. Prior to working with the Mariners, he was coaching and consulting in Southern California.
