New York’s current hitting coach, Dave Hudgens, was brought back by the Mets along with the entire 2013 coaching staff for next season despite a year in which the Mets ranked 29th in the MLB in OPS with a .672 figure, ahead of only the Miami Marlins’ .627.
Dave Hudgens has been the Mets hitting coach since the 2011 season, previously holding the same position with the A’s in 1999 and again from 2003-2005.
