Mako to manage Mets

The New York Mets named former Biscuits coach Mako Oliveras the manager of their Class AA team in Binghamton, N.Y., on Wednesday.

Oliveras was a coach for the Biscuits the last two years and had been hired by the Mets to be a roving instructor, but instead will manage the Binghamton Mets. Oliveras has managed 11 minor-league seasons, including the three before joining manager Charlie Montoyo's staff in Montgomery.

Oliveras is currently in Puerto Rico managing the Caguas Criollos.
