Mets denied permission to interview Padres’ Ryan Flaherty for bench coach job

The New York Mets have run into a bit of a road block as they build new manager Buck Showalter’s coaching staff. The San Diego Padres have denied the Mets permission to interview Ryan Flaherty for their bench coach job, reports The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal. Flaherty is currently San Diego’s quality control coach.


Flaherty, 35, played for Showalter with the Baltimore Orioles from 2012-17. He joined the Padres in a scouting and coaching capacity in 2019. It is not certain the Mets would have hired Flaherty — Flaherty is merely one of several candidates the team is considering for the bench coach job — though they won’t even get the chance to interview him.
