Collins and Mets' management began contract talks last Monday and appear to have already hammered out a deal.

The New York Mets could announce a contract extension for Manager Terry Collins on Monday, reports FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal. Collins' deal is expected to be for two years with a club option, though Rosenthal notes the specifics of the contract are not finished.

General Manager Sandy Alderson and Collins only began discussing an extension this past week. Collins has been with the Mets since 2011 after a club option was picked up for the 2013 season. His original deal will run out after Sunday's season finale.

The 2013 Mets have a 73-87 record and are third in the National League East in a year where the team was anticipated to be among the worst in the majors.  Overall, Collins has a 224-260 record in his three years in New York. He has had a worse record each subsequent year with the team.

Collins previously managed the Houston Astros and Anaheim Angels during the 1990s but had not managed a major league team in over a decade before the Mets offered him their job.
