We finally find out what a quality control coach does for the Mets

From the NY Post.

Luis Rojas is the Mets Outfield and Quality Control coach. I pictured Rojas wearing a lab coat, a hair cap and stamping the uniforms and equipment grade A or grade B. This makes more sense to what it is though, even if the quality control should be on the manager or bench coach.
“We have a great analytical team and I am going to be that source that brings in the information to our coaching staff and to our players,” Rojas said Wednesday. “Taking in mind the relationships I have with the guys, maybe knowing them from the start of their careers and throughout their careers.”
Much of Rojas’ work in quality control will occur pregame, presenting the coaches and players with the numbers in an understandable fashion. The position was added by the Mets this winter — many teams have been using quality control coaches over the past several seasons — in an effort by new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen to expand the organization’s analytical reach.
During games, Rojas will be in the dugout, serving largely in his other role as the team’s outfield coach.
