The Mets have fired their long-time medical coordinator for the minor leagues, Mike Herbst, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Rubin.
Herbst had been head trainer Ray Ramirez’s assistant at the big-league level in between his stints as the minor league medical coordinator. He also served as the athletic trainer for the Brooklyn Cyclones back in 2001.
