Mets' Terry Collins expected to remain manager in 2014, according to report

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets have reportedly been impressed with how Collins kept the club motivated during a disappointing season.

The New York Mets expect to have Terry Collins back as manager next season, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

The Mets have had a disappointing season in 2013, entering Sunday with a 62-72 record. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, however, told Cliff Corcoran of Sports Illustrated that the team would evaluate Collins on more than "simply wins and losses."

There is internal respect for how Collins has navigated through challenges of the 2013 season, which included long-term injuries to David Wright and Matt Harvey, a source close to the situation told Rubin. Collins has reportedly kept the clubhouse upbeat and players motivated despite the team's underwhelming results.

Collins joined the Mets before the 2011 season, signing a two-year contract with an option for a third year. New York picked up his option last September and is planning to re-sign the manager, though they are waiting until the offseason to make a commitment.

The 64-year-old has a career 657-679 record as a MLB manager over parts of nine seasons with the Angels, Astros and Mets.
