Julio Cortez/Associated PressTerry Collins is expected to remain Mets skipper in 2014, but no formal announcement should come until after the season.
GM Sandy Alderson and Collins are expected to meet during the upcoming series in Cincinnati, with that topic undoubtedly on the agenda.
The Mets have won three straight games to pull into a third-place tie with the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East at 71-84.
Collins has navigated the Mets through a ton of obstacles, from the seven-week absence of David Wright, to the trade of Marlon Byrd and John Buck, to the losses of Matt Harvey and Bobby Parnell and now Zack Wheeler getting shut down for the season.
"With all the struggles we've had this year, this has been one of the harder years that I've ever been through as far as injuries and schedule and all the other things involved," Collins said pregame, while speaking about whether it would be meaningful to pass the Phillies in the standings.
